I admit I don't pay much attention to most holidays other than the biggies. But gosh, Mother's Day rocks!! Jason actually set his alarm and got up early to take care of the kids so I could sleep in! Love that! I woke up at 8:00, but stayed in bed reading until almost 9:00. Ahhhh, it's been a while since I've been able to do that. When I finally emerged, coffee and cinnamon rolls were waiting for me. And guess what Jason, errr, I mean my kids got me!
So now, I'm almost as cool as my kids! I think this is the last year with Jason picking out my present though (although Emma did choose the color). We found out at bedtime that Emma was upset because she didn't have a necklace to give me. Apparently that's a gift she associates with Mother's Day. I made sure to make a big deal about wearing these today and she was excited to show them to her teachers, lol!
The rest of the day was spent very quietly. We didn't go anywhere and the weather was lousy, so we just watched videos, read books, and played with sidewalk chalk in the garage. Then I got my weekly "purge" with an hour's worth of crying during Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Do you watch that show? I'm addicted. And it makes me cry every week. But it sure puts my difficulties in perspective!
Now another week has begun and we're starting to make summer plans! I just signed Emma up for two sessions of swim lessons. $100 total, eek! Let's hope we can find some cheap things to do!
