Why I love being a Muzzer

Yesterday was a good Mother's Day, and there were just a few things that I wanted to blog about to remember this Mother's Day by.
First off, my Mother's Day was more like Mother's Week and started last Monday. Bethany came into my room early in the morning, and very proudly said, "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!" I thanked her and then informed her that it wasn't Mother's Day yet. She was quite disappointed and continued to ask me everyday if it was Mother's Day yet.
She made me a card on Tuesday, all by herself, no one told her to. When Joe came home from work she had him write in it for her. She thanked me for cleaning the house, taking care of her when she is sick, cooking macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, oatmeal with cinnamon, brown sugar and white sugar, which I don't put white sugar in it, but she thinks I do, taking her to Mamma's house, playing with her and doing knock-knock jokes.
One day, she asked me if every mother has their own Mother's Day or if they all have Mother's Day on the same day. I thought it was sweet that she put so much thought into it!
My mom helped them make cards for me. She said, Bethany only needed help with spelling the words and she pretty much came up with everything else on her own. Here is the middle, you can see a rainbow, 2 slides, one with her going down it, a hot air balloon, I 'heart' U, and a portrait of our family. I am pushing Jenna in a stroller. Aren't we cute?

Yesterday, when Joseph found out it was Mother's Day he excitedly said, "Mommy, I'm gonna give you sump-in fur Muzzer's Day! I gonna give you my broken airpwane." Sure enough, he ran to his room, retrieved his plane and brought it to me. He showed me all the broken spots and said, "Here Mommy, you can have it!"
As much as it seems like a sacrificial less gift to give, it is so broken because he loves that plane. He really was trying to give me something he thought I'd love.
They both separately found some tall weeds growing under the deck and picked them for me. So I have one cute little Mother's day bouquet on the piano.
Joe did take them shopping and they bought me a purse, flip flops and sunglasses. Somehow, the presents paled compared to these sweet moments.

Awww, your kids are adorable and so thoughtful!! I love when my kids draw a family portrait...sometimes I cringe though when I see how they drew me (with wild crazy hair and huge bug eyes with my mouth open as if I'm yelling at them).

So glad you're participating in our carnival!!
