So, as fas as my own mother's day goes, I was certainly spoiled.
I was up with Sophie a lot last night, so I actually slept in till 11:00 am! That hasn't happened in forever! Then I had breakfast made for me and was showered with gifts.
Joel and the girls got me some new yummy smelling lotion, a cool bath pillow thing that suctions to the bath tub and some scrapbooking magazines. Since I fully intend to start scrapping full throttle again soon. My mom sent me money that must be used for a massage, I am told. Absolutely nothing else, especially not bills (I told you she is incredibly generous!).
Bria made me a little jar at school with Hershey's kisses and hugs inside, and little word strips. Here is what they say:
Mom cares about me.
The most important thing about my mom is she loves me.
She loves me with all her heart and I do too.
If I had one million hearts I would love you with all of them.
I love you with all my heart.
She loves me and I love her.
Bria is a very loving child, in case you didn't notice.
Chloe also made me a cute gift at school. It was a little foam magnetic memo board to put on the fridge with a little marker to go with it. If you know Chloe at all, then you know she has completely taken it over already, even though it says "Mom's memos."
Joel asked Chloe how she could show me that she loves me and she said this, "Give her big hugs and French kisses and lots of money."
Joel and I took Sophie to part of church because I really didn't want to miss the girls singing to me and Joel was in charge of conducting the annual mother's day special number sung by the Priesthood. So as soon as that was done, he took the baby home (who is still really quite ill) and put her to bed where she slept until I got home. He then cleaned the entire house and made my favorite meal for dinner. Fettucine alfredo with chicken. Yum!
After dinner I had Joel take some pictures of me and the girls. I always feel like I am the one behind the camera and I don't really have too many pictures of me with my kids, so I wanted to change that. They turned out okay. You can tell Sophie isn't feeling well, I think my new haircut makes my face look really fat, there is a lot of glare on Bria's and my glasses, and I am, in fact, really fat. But I am happy to have the pictures.
I hope all you moms out there who read this also had a fabulous day, too!
