Mother's Day...

Happy Mother's Day to all you mums reading this!!!

My day started with a lie-in.

Dragged myself out of bed at about 10.30 to a ready made cup of coffee, and a pile of cards and a pressie!

Here is what was in my pressie! Isn't it pretty??! This year I took Dave to House and showed him the sort of thing I'd like, and as a back up I took Erik - knowing that if Dad decided it was too embarrassing to buy something this "cheesy" for me, Erik would keep him on the straight and narrow!

I think Dave is afraid I'm turning into HIS mother... More likely I'm turning into MY mother, hahaha!


And then came what I was REALLY looking forward to! My first EVER Mother's Day cards hand made by the boys! Dave isn't the kind of Dad who will sit down with his kids to hand make cards. Dave has hand made cards for me on behalf of the boys, but would find it hard to watch them make things in that kiddy "it's the thought that counts" way... So, I'm very greatful to the boys' teachers for helping them make these!

From Luey...


It says, "I love my mum because she gives me buritos, and I like buritos.


From Erik...


It says, "My mum likes my best work (have to wonder if the teacher suggested this, because I never put emphasis on best work, LOL, I love all his work). My mum is cuddly (spelled "culy", awwww). My mum is funny." He was extremely proud of this effort!


And Dave remembered that I love Gerberers!

The rest of Mother's Day will be pretty much like any other Sunday... Have to clean the house and do the grocery shopping! Dave is going over to his mum's this afternoon, we can't go because the Erik and Bryn have colds and Dave's Dad doesn't have a lot of tolerance for infection anymore. We're giving Dave's mum a framed set of the boys' school photos (love burnished iron frame with grape leaves on it), and a bottle of wine (her only really pleasure these days as diabetes has minimized the volume of chocolates she can eat)... Have to call my mum too, and get her address so I can send her HER copy of the boys' framed school photos...

Aww :) Lovely!! Amused to see Erik's school piece contains the same poem as Liam's Mother's day artwork-must be a standard thing all schools hand out!! I was thinking "I don't give a toss about dirty fingers on walls, am I an abnormal mother?" LOL dont answer that!! :D But yeah both kids did artwork for me this year, Liam at school and Sienna at FDC..it's so sweet huh?

LOL, me too! Now had they made reference to snot balls flicked on the wall, that would have been a different matter, but then again, I don't think I would have really appreciated a mother's day artwork covered in snot balls either...
