My Mommy Day

Ah, Mother’s Day. The day of spoiling mom.

Uh huh.

Last year’s day was the pits. Daddy was out of town (like usual), little girls were obnoxious, and nothing seemed to go well until the big kids intervened.

My expectations were low this year considering daddy is once again out of town.

But let me just tell you how wrong I was….

I spent Saturday at Alex’s soccer game…..all by myself. The little ones stayed with Katie.

I got a pedicure…..all by myself. The little ones were home with the big ones.

All four kids were home for dinner Saturday. Wow.

Sunday morning dawned…..

I opened my eyes, checked the clock, and was surprised there were no short people in my room.

I listened and heard noises in the kitchen. Uh oh.

Took a peek and saw Alex with the girls.

Took a sniff and smelled food.

Oh my.

Alex made breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and bacon. I was totally impressed.

I grabbed a nap and stayed in my jammies until almost three when…….

Katie announced she was taking me out to dinner. Another wow.

Came home from dinner to a homemade cookie cake from Alex.

Yes, we had fights, squabbles, and screaming today. But it was all overshadowed by the good things.

But the best thing today?

A picture of my four together……taken during my pedicure on Saturday as a surprise to me.



I loved this Mother’s Day.

And I love my babies…...

Happy Mother's Day! It sounds like you had a much deserved great one. There are definitely some benefits to having both big and littles at home.
