Happy Mother’s Day

I woke up to such a sweet surprise this morning.  All of my darling littles had piled into bed to cover me with hugs and kisses and bring me breakfast in bed.  Toast (LOL forever!) and black coffee.  I reminded them that Mommy and Starling don’t eat carbs, but I did drink a teensy bit of the coffee.  Not good.  I showed Merlin how to make a better pot of coffee after I got home from the gym.

They also each had made me a special gift.  From Hummus (I am sure you can guess) it was coloring pages from the gym.  He just loves coloring in the gym child care and that is why I let him spend so much time there.  Obviously it is very educational for him, now that they are no longer employing foreigners.

Haha!  He had scribbled all over the place where he was supposed to draw Mommy's face in all of them.  So innocent and adorable.

Merlin had made me a a book of poetry at school.  Fine.  But when I opened it they were all poems written by him.  The first one was a haiku, for crying out loud.

I don't even get haiku.

Who wants to read poems written by children?  Not me!  Straight into the rubbish bin went that little number,

Nice try teachers, next time a lil' sun catcher might be nice.

Starling had written a darling paper entitled “Five Things I Love About My Mother”.  I just adore it!

Hashtags and everything!

Röbert said he doesn’t have a gift for me because I am not his mother.  That man had better be joking!

I think I will spend the rest of the day shopping and checking Instagram to make sure that my Mother’s Day is the best of all!
