I love Mother's Day!
I had the best Mother's Day yesterday. After waking up, I was greeted with "Happy Mother's Day!!" by my sweet family. They had been busy while I was sleeping, picking up toys and cleaning the house. That was a nice surprise. Then I was given my gifts - a movie I had been wanting FOREVER, Frequency with my boy, Jim Caviezel and fun stationary from Target (love that aisle!). Caroline made me a dish towel at school with her little handprint and a purse card. I loved it all! In the afternoon, Mike played the guitar and I sang and sang all my favorite songs after we found a cool site online that gave Mike the chords to all the songs! It was so much fun. I love to sit around and sing more than anything. (Okay at one point, Caroline did throw a tantrum on the stairs to get attention. I guess she was tired of my singing! ha!) That evening, we had a wonderful dinner at Olive Garden and I ended the day watching one of my favorites shows, Desperate Housewives. It was an all-around good day. I felt loved and happy. It seems like every year, Mother's Day is my favorite day. I am pampered more than any other day - even my birthday. It's like for that one day, Mike goes "thanks for being a Mom" and Caroline tries to make me feel special.
So if you're a Mother, how did YOUR Mother's Day go? I'd love to hear about it!
