Happy belated Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there! And to those single dads who fulfill the mother role in so many ways. Being a mama isn’t always easy, but the perks are worth it.
I woke up to Jaden asking me what day it was. When I said it was Mother’s Day his eye lit up and he jumped out of bed and reached underneath his bed frame and pulled out two wrapped gifts. He was SO excited! I opened them up slowly … he made me two garden stones at school. He showed me each stone … this was is smooth … this one is really bumpy … I like the way it shines. Then he sat up really tall and says “Ok I gave you your gift, now where is your gift for me?” BAH haha sweet kid. I ended up finding him a set of Sponge Bob Square pants markers I had hidden away for a rainy day.
Doug treated me to a homemade breakfast of eggs & toast. Isn’t it funny how much better food tastes when someone else makes it?
Then we headed over to my mom’s house. My dad cooked for us … and I’m not lying when I say it was the best meal I have had in as long as I can remember! Everything was perfect and sooooooo good. Thanks Dad!
My mom had gotten a kiddie pool for the triplets to play in. We striped them down and let them run around naked. They had SO much fun! I learned my first lesson of the summer … when the babies are naked outside, don’t forget to put sunscreen on their butts too!
As of course we couldn’t leave without a photo with all my boys (just like last year).
Then we tried for a full family photo. Let’s just say out of the ten photos we took, we got one that was just ok. It was blog post worthy experience!
