Well, I had a very relaxing and great day yesterday!
We started the day getting ready for church. One of my Mother's Day presents came during that time. See, I have one child who is notorious for crying and screaming and flinging out while she gets her hair brushed (she is 6 years old by the way). Every day it is a battle and every day I contemplate SHAVING HER HEAD!!
Well, yesterday morning, I told her that my favorite Mother's Day present from her would be silence and stillness while I fixed her hair for church. IT WORKED!! She actually stood there quietly and didn't even flinch. What she doesn't know is that now I KNOW she can do it!
Anyhow, the day went on and we went to church and the kids all made cute little things for me in their classes. The girls made me tissue paper flowers and Jordan answered questions about me to his teacher. Here are his answers:
My mommy's name is "Cassie" (oh, what a smart boy!)
My mommy is "48" years old (he doesn't know what he is talking about. Maybe he is a little slow)
My mommy's favorite food is "the chicken I don't like" (this is him making a point that he doesn't like any food I set in front of him)
My mommy's favorite thing to do is "cook" (are we sure he is talking about HIS mom :)
Then, we went to my parents and the men of the family took over. They cooked us salmon on the grill. This was especially exciting for me because we rarely buy salmon any more due to the rising costs. I LOVE salmon and this was a special treat for me. The guys were completely in charge of feeding the children, cooking and cleaning up! It was awesome.
We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing while the kids swam and playing cards.
I hope you all had a nice Mother's Day as well. I would like to start a petition that Mother's Day come more than once a year. What do you think?
