Ah, Mother’s Day….
It was a good day in the Jesse X2 house. I woke up to a venti chai tea latte from Starbucks (my favorite) and a beautiful new knife set from the hubby/kids. Slightly unconventional, but still pretty awesome.
Though I got suckered into making breakfast, I didn’t mind (had to try out the new knives! They worked beautifully!)
I wanted to take lunch to my mom (in the nursing home) and her request was Subway and salt & vinegar potato chips. So, I obliged very willingly and we had a lovely lunch together, enjoying the beautiful WI spring weather. At one point I asked her what she would have had to eat for lunch had I not delivered her some good foodstuff and her response-- “I don’t know and I don’t fu@%ing care”. Man, I love that woman. I could start to get all sappy on you and write numerous words and paragraphs about how much I love my mom, but I truly wouldn’t be able to put enough words out there to justify her awesomeness. So, I will just say my mom is the shiznit.
Here we are:
When I showed her this photo (on my phone) she said she "looked half in the bag".
Again, I love that woman.
The rest of the afternoon was filled with laughter and good times with my kids, hubby, mother in law and brother in law.
We had a little princess picnic, complete with 'tater chips and a Zhu Zhu pet:
(if you ask Emerson why she has a bandaid on her head, she'll tell you London kicked her. I personally think she just wanted a Barbie bandaid on her head)
My oh so creative "carved" a little something in the acreage behind the barn...
I couldn't get get the entire thing in (kinda needed an aerial shot for that one) but you can kind of make out "HAPPY MOM DAY". I have a feeling these little lawn mowed carvings will be a staple as we celebrate different holidays.
Overall, Mother's Day was a good day. I'm happy to be a mom.
Here was the best part...my son made me something in school for this very special day. And when I opened it, I cried. And laughed. And squeezed him so tight and told him I loved him 8 million times.
Here's what he made (a book):
(please don't ask why I have monster hands in every drawing. I can't get an answer out of him on that one)
|My mom is really good at "cooking".|
|My mom is the best because "she's nice".|
|My mom looks nice when "she feeds us".|
|My mom does NOT like to "deal with crabby kids".|
Best. Present. Ever.
