I am very blessed to be the mother of two amazing children.
As I sit here thinking about how my Mothers Day has gone, I giggle to myself. Yep. I giggle. I have learned to love my dear friend Murphy and the law that he has imparted to us all! Lol!
When I became a mother, I learned that the best plan is to have a back up plan and to love the moment that you’re in:-).
My husband is caring and considerate. He is my true partner. Well, this weekend was taken down by strep:-(. Boo. Selfish translation – my secret dream of sleeping in was dashed away. I changed that dream of sleeping in to then the thought of donuts:-). When my kids woke up at 7 a.m. we got to snuggle for a while then headed to the donut shop and had fun looking to the colorful display of edible artistry:-). Luckily the donut shop also had great coffee…(of course right?)…because I was totally out at home.
After breakfast and a relaxing morning, I packed the kids up and headed to Costco. I love how excited my kids get when we go there. I needed some essentials and a few bonus things(yay Pita chips being on sale!!!), and the best part is when we pull into the parking lot. As I enter the parking lot, I hear two sweet voices saying “Yay yay samples!!! Yay yay samples!” Seriously so adorable!!!
I got great deals on everything and after we finished shopping, we grabbed a five star lunch…a hotdog combo and a smoothie. My daughter actually orders for us. We were even lucky enough to a seat under an umbrella:-). My son was thrilled about that.
We got home and had a beautiful afternoon playing outside…
Yes, that was a picture of my son riding his bike in a Spider-man costume<3.
My kids and I then tried to organize our playroom, which, if any of you have 2 year olds, you know how well that can go…on the bright side, although no organizing took place, my kids had a blast:-)
So after trying to be productive, I was tired, I had been dreaming of having a really nice meal from my favorite local restaurant, and while my husband was sick, we still wanted to have a nice family dinner. I get all excited about my favorite things that I'm going to order and call…two problems…#1 They are only offering a limited menu…#2 They are not offering take out:-(.
Well, I made the most of it and ended up making omelets with fresh veggies and ham. They were delicious!
My whole family had a great time unwinding as we got the kids ready for bed and to my surprise both if my kids were asleep by8:-).
Ended up being a great day:-). Make the most of every day…after all…it is the(a) present:-). Things might not always go as you plan, but that doesn't mean you can't make the most of it.
Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3
