Happy Mother’s Day to all mother’s in the world today. We have the greatest, hardest, and most rewarding of all jobs on the planet. Everybody has a mother, on earth or in heaven, today is the day to give thanks for your mom.
Because I’m a bit on the selfish side I decided I wanted Mother’s Day all to myself this year. Hopefully the day will involve some sun, a fishing
trip with the kids, some steak on the grill for lunch and a nap. Yesterday we celebrated Mother’s Day with our families. The day involved lots of flowers, food and fun. The most memorial event happened at my parent’s house. It was my father’s birthday and the only thing we were supposed to bring was a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. We forgot it. My husband drove to get one and brought back the most amazing cake…..with one little issue. The cake said Happy Mother’s Day and
it was supposed to say Happy Birthday. My husband claimed he didn’t know it was my father’s birthday. My father was not impressed.
The cake curse continued on. Before I could get it cut, my sister and my father convinced my daughter that the frosting was scented. Being a curious nine-year-old she bent down for a sniff and promptly had her face shoved into the cake. My father and sister both denied doing this
but nonetheless my daughter ended up with a face full of cake. She cried. Not because of the frosting up her nose or in her hair, she cried because she was in pain. The cake was frozen and the poor little thing claimed her nose hurt after the tragic event. Once the tears were dried she laughed about the incident and we all laughed while we tried to convince my mother to smell the cake. It was a Mother’s Day party that will live forever in my mind.
My children made me the most beautiful cards for me at school.
McKenzie’s was a picture printed on cardboard and cut into puzzle pieces. I had to put the puzzle together before I could read the message. Will also made me a card with the word MOM and a picture of himself in the center. I love my kids! I also received a huge basket of pink flowers from my in-laws and a basket of white flowers from my god-son Austin. When I gave Austin a hug and thanked him for the flowers he admitted that he didn’t even know what the flowers looked like because him mom picked them out. Too funny, he’s growing up so fast. I received fun things for my garden from my own mother and last but not least, drum roll please……..I got a Kindle Fire! I actually got it early because the kids and my husband were so excited to give it to me that they couldn’t hold out. I love it so much but it has caused some“issues” in my life.
I never play games on my laptop or phone and rarely participate
when my family plays the Wii or PS3. The only game I really like is Majong. Computers are for work but the Kindle is for fun. The kids asked me to download a game called Angry Birds and I’ve been hooked ever since. It’s the stupidest game with crazy pig-faced green things that smile at you when you don’t kill them. They drive me insane. I play this game in the morning, with the kids, without the kids, before bed, I play it when I should be working on my book and I play it when I should be writing a blog, it has taken over my life. I’m ashamed to say that I’m addicted to Angry Birds. I rarely have time to check my
Facebook account and I haven’t be on Pintrest in days. Effective tomorrow I am going to try to wean myself off of this horrible thing, but for today, maybe just one more game.
Now get out there and have an amazing day!
