{5-9} Happy Mother's Day

I am skipping my ABC today to say Happy Mother's Day.  Mine has been great.  We made it to church on time - even with the kids making breakfast (cinnamon french toast with cinnamon syrup). They made my lunch and dinner too - and I had a nap.  I also got some great gifts and cards.  I love my kids so much.  They are good  - but, all of this working together all day was hard on them.  There were a few minor spats and a few bouts of tears - just so I wouldn't forget what mothering is all about.  I always think it is funny that on Mother's Day I never do the mothering things.  Someone else fixes dinner and does the dishes, I took a nap instead of keeping the kids busy with Sunday appropriate activities and I even got a foot rub.  Really, I got to be the dad on Mother's Day.

Hehe--I wanted to be the dad yesterday--but when you host a mother's day bash for the whole sumsion clan--there's no hope of that. I'm glad to see your blogging again...I've decided my season for blogging will begin June 5th--school's out on the 4th.
