Had a pretty good Mother's Day--took Mom to lunch at PF Chang's and discovered the world's most delicious appetizer, then bought three new pairs of shoes...
Came home to a rainy day and princess stories on the porch with my birthday girl.
Was a little disappointed at the end of the evening when I asked TJ if he got a card for me...and he didn't. Felt a little let down and unappreciated--he did make up for it today with a lovely apology card, but I am getting to the best part.
So tonight the kids went out to the cul-de-sac and Lila and Bronwen both picked clover flowers for me declaring "Happy Mother's Day!" When we got back inside, Bronwen arranged Miss Kitty on the bed so I wouldn't have to exercise alone. I found this incredibly thoughtful and said:
Me: Bronwen, I really appreciate all the little things you are doing for me for Mother's Day.
Bronwen: Well, Mom, I have to do them. You are so important. I mean, what would I do without you?
Best. Gift. Ever.
