We may not be dressed up in designer clothes, and my grubby little monkeys have dirt on their faces, but I wouldn't trade 'em for anything in the world. This Mother's Day we stayed home all day and relaxed together, enjoyed the spring weather in the yard, and watched movies as a family, with a big bowl of popcorn and a couple wishful looking dogs. It was beautiful!
The kids (and their Dad) surprised me by making me breakfast in bed, assembling a new glider bench for the porch, hand making cards, and arranging two vases of flowers for me. The best gift of all was getting to go out late to a gallery opening and Club Foot with a group of Mama friends and sleep in till 10am! And the kids even mostly managed to pull off the only thing I asked for for Mother's Day....a fight free day without arguing, antagonizing, teasing, talking back, bickering, quibbling, or complaining. If we can't achieve world peace quite yet, house peace is a lovely way to start!
