In the spirit of the "favorites" lists that have been popping up I decided to list my 5 favorite things this Mother's Day:
1. Josie giving me a little chocolate bar and beautiful picture she had drawn in Sunday School while exclaiming, " Happy Mudder's Day, Mudder!" (For some inexplicable reason she has decided to call me "Mother", it is a little weird!)
2. Carson feeding himself with a spoon for the first time! Yeah! He likes to do special things for holidays, I guess. (Like learning to sit up on Christmas Eve)
3. Playing "Pretty Princess" with Jocelyn. Just one of those sweet, fun memories. And who doesn't love wearing a crown, necklace, bracelet, ring and earrings all made from coordinating plastic?
4. Having a tasty lunch at Chipotle. I love, love, love their new soft corn tortillas. Yummy chicken tacos are a perfect Mother's Day lunch- and I didn't have to cook!
5.The best part: getting to celebrate Mother's Day as the mom of two terrific kids who are the smartest, sweetest, cutest, funniest and all around best 3 year-old girl and 1 year-old boy a mom could want! (I am a little biased...)
It really is the little things in life isn't it? I mean if someone's Fave 5 Mother's Day gifts included a Caribbean cruise from the kids and 1-carat diamond earrings from hubby, how much would we be ready to shove them in a well?!ReplyDelete
But we can all appreciate a hearty lunch and chocolates just for Mudder :)
Happy Mother's Day!!!!
Thanks for sharing. I had a great Mother's Day, too. All of my big kids called and my mom and my sister were here. That made it super special.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, I LOVE Chipotle!! Now you have me craving that.... =)ReplyDelete
Glad you had a great Mother's Day. You seem like a great Mother!!
AWWWW! I think it is cute Josie calls you Mother and insists you try on every piece of jewlery she likes. Lunch and shopping were fun as usual. I'm glad you enjoyed your Mother's Day!ReplyDelete
haha I know what you mean-There are a lot of things around town that either I did as a really little kid or not at all. The Pioneer Museum is free which is great. Estes Park is a great place to visit with kiddos because you can really just park and walk around the town. Lots of little shops and restaurants to browse and choose from. I'm using our trips back as a reason to get all touristy and it's been fun!ReplyDelete
