It took a few years, but finally I've lowered my expectations of Mother's day, and it's good now! I got some cute cards with sweet notes from the girls, Miss B made me a beaded bracelet and a Dr. Pepper pin (missing at the moment- picture soon). Sam gave me flowers and cooked breakfast. I was able to go to church and hear about amazing mothers without comparing myself to them too much, I watched Stephanie Nielson's video again, and I spent the evening with my own mom- while Sam stayed home with the boys because Mr. C was a bit under the weather. We watched the latest episode of "The Middle" which was hilarious- you've got to watch that show! (ABC Wednesdays at 8) And I really liked her idea of celebrating "The Day After Mother's Day." I just wanted to share this recently found picture of my mom and I- she was only 20 years old in this picture and so beautiful- she is so talented too, I bet she made the clothes both of us were wearing then! Happy Mother's Day Mom!
I really like to make stuff: food, cards, scrapbooks, sewing projects, crafts, etc, but finding the time to actually DO those things without neglecting my home, husband, and kids is difficult! I love Dr. Pepper with a passion, and my husband Sam too! (and I use way too many exclamation points when typing!)
