Mother’s Day 2011

I used to dread Mother’s Day.

I used to refer to to it as, “Barren Awareness Day.”

Now that those days are behind me, I look forward to Mother’s Day and all the handmade gifts that go with it!

Early Sunday morning I heard Hannah sneak into our room and walk over to David’s side of the bed. In her loudest whisper she said:

“DAD! WAKE UP! I NEED YOUR HELP! KATIE (her 12 year old cousin who babysat her the night before) REMINDED ME THAT TODAY IS MOTHER’S DAY AND I NEED TO MAKE MOMMY BREAKFAST.”

“DAD? ARE YOU LISTENING? I NEED YOUR HELP MAKING MOMMY BREAKFAST! WE NEED TO MAKE IT BEFORE SHE WAKES UP!’

David finally pulled his sleepy body out of bed and off he and Hannah went to make me a “secret” breakfast.

A few minutes later, while I lay sleepily in bed, Hannah poked her head back into my bedroom and said in her outside voice, “MOM. YOU NEED TO STAY ASLEEP UNTIL I SAY SO.” And then she left. What a funny kid.

Breakfast was lovely (eggs, toast, bacon, and mixed berries in whole whipped cream) and she made me a lovely card as well. Please take note of the 10 pieces of gum stuck to the card.

They are ALL MINE and I’m not sharing. 🙂

This card was so fancy, she had to decorate every side. I love homemade gifts.

I ended my day with a whopper of a headache. Lovely, right? I fell asleep around 7:30 and woke up at 7:30. How’s that for a Mother’s Day gift? 12 whole hours of sleep!

  1. Homemade gifts are the best! The gum was adorable! I fell asleep at 7:30 too while I was putting Jack to bed. I got 11 hrs. of sleep and my kids told me the next day that I should do that more often because I wasnt so cranky the next day!! haha!

  2. Hi, I really like the loft bed in your blog! It popped up through google 😀 Anyways I clicked the link on how to make it and it doesn’t appear to be working? I tried searching around… do you kno anywhere else to find them? Thanks 😀
