Breakfast in a Bag (and other things that rock)

I got breakfast in a bag from the Bean. And the Princess gave me a personalized pen holder, which she was so excited to give me and told my neighbor/friend about several times because she had to tell someone! It was a very happy Mother's Day.

On Sunday I got to sleep in, didn't have to cook or prepare one meal, took a loooong nap and got extra love and attention from the little people in my life. The hubs also scored some serious points with an iTunes gift card (new running tunes!!) and an appointment for a massage. Being a mom on Mother's Day ROCKS! It's pretty awesome the rest of the time too though. Here are a few of the things I love about being a mom:
  • Hearing my girls singing songs from The Happiest Millionaire ("What's wrong with that" and "Bayump-pum-pum" are probably my favorites) while they are getting their hair done, when they are outside swinging, from the back seat of the car, while cleaning their room, etc.
  • Getting a little glimpse into The Princess' heart as she fills out her "About Me" book.

  • Getting awesome Mother's Day presents, and then having my 3-year old hand me the banana and instant oatmeal packet from inside and then watching her drink the juice box that was in it while laying claim to the bag. I did manage to reclaim the bag for myself later.
  • Eating school lunch pizza at 10:45 am with my kindergartner for her Mom & Me lunch.
  • Seeing my girl's smile when I pick her up from school every day.
  • Hearing their giggles when they are supposed to be going to sleep at night.

  • Running The Bean's first race with her while watching The Princess who was ahead of us put her little heart into running.
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day, whether you were celebrating being one or the one who made you. Otherwise, I hope you just had a wonderful weekend. And yes, I know it is Wednesday, but I'm still on my Mother's Day high, so it's all good.
