Happy Mother's Day

June CleaverImage via Wikipedia

I'm not in June's camp but I am a mom to two wonderful kids. The very kids who one minute I can love like there's no tomorrow and the next minute loathe their very existence that committing a felony doesn't seem like such a bad option considering the alternative.

And I am a daughter to a wonderfully loving, funny, and very human mom. She is always ready to help in any way she can. If Debbi can't help you she'll fret about it for you til the cows come home. I learned to clean the house with soundtracks playing. Even now if I get the urge to clean (which is far and few between) having Gigi or The Sound of Music playing makes the grind so much more pleasant. Don't you think life in general would be better if we all had a soundtrack as an audio backdrop?

Today, I have on my dining room table a wonderful floral arrangement sent to me from my mom and day. I received a very sweet card from my mother-in-law. Professor P and the kids baked me a chocolate cake which we ate for breakfast..."dad is great he feeds us chocolate cake". Then I was shooed out the door to go shopping in Greenville for a new camera. I am the proud new owner of a Canon PowerShot.

I also participated in a fun mother's day swap organized by Confessions of a Moody Mommy. My gift was sent to me by Neven of Picture Framing.
She sent me two wonderful magazines, yummy chocolates, and fabulous nail polish to get my toes ready for summer!


Then for dinner tonight the professor made yummy fettucine alfredo, garlic bread and salad. After baths we watched home movies of the kids when they were babies. Heavy sigh...big love. It was a great Mother's Day. I felt loved and cared for and that's all any mother can ask for.
