That special day for Moms...it was yesterday. Leia started celebrating early for me by sleeping 8 hours straight on Friday night/Saturday morning. I'll take what I can get at this stage. It was a one night occurrence but it was appreciated.
My son offered a spontaneous kiss and hug during the song service at church. Love this!
My middle child, Lily, got out of bed to give more hugs and kisses to round the day out.
There's something about holidays that makes me just want to do a lazy day with my little family. I enjoy the carefree times where I can sit and watch tv or lie in the hammock watching the kids play
and argue over who's turn is next on the swing. It's all good.
Mother's Day weekend was fun.
Next on the list is Kindergarten Graduation for Dakota, End of Year party, Memorial Day weekend and our 8th Wedding Anniversary, and then VACATION!!
I truly can't wait til vacation. We are going to Florida to visit my family. It's been almost 2 years since I've seen some of my family. Given I wouldn't be able to live with my family but in this situation, Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Some holidays, I miss not spending them with my family. Not being able to give my mom or dad a hug on their special day. But I remember that I'll see them sometime during the summer and I do have my little family to take care of as well.
For those of you who live close to your families, appreciate them, love them, and don't take for granted the closeness you share.
Now...Dinner isn't going to fix itself..so I must go.
