We went to Val's to have lunch with all the mom's in my family...my mom, sisters, Memaw, my Aunts & all of our hubbies & kiddos. Everyone brought something so of course, we had lots of leftovers. Yum yum! Afterwards, we went to my dad's to visit with Kathy & Grandma. We mainly hung out outside to let the kids play & watch Maggie swing.
My "real mom gift" came when I was heading to bed. Backing up ALL the way to the morning, Izzy had slept with me in my bed Saturday night because Bo didn't have to work the next day. So, I got up first & when Izzy got up later, she proudly announced that she made my bed. Hooray! Remind you, that a 4 1/2 year old just made a king size bed by herself, so I left it in the condition she made it. No need to fix perfection! ;-) Anyway...so I pull back the covers to get in bed last night & I see 5 of her "babies" lined up against my pillow! It was so cute & I actually laughed out loud. (And if any of you have ever seen Izzy's bed, you'd know she sleeps with at least 20 babies on her bed. They all have a spot & she knows when they're out of place. I think she's trying to make my bed the same way.)
Having kids definitely has highs & lows....but it's the little things like that that really make you wonder how they don't have a little halo over their heads all the time. :-)
I hope all you mom's had a great Mother's Day!
I didn't get any pictures of me & my kids, but here's one w/ Memaw & all of her great-grandkids!
