What a fun morning. The kids woke me up with caramel cinnamon rolls (YUM!) and a very cheerful "Happy Mothers' Day!" Liz gave me some flowers planted in a cute cup.
Aside: She brought these flowers home on Friday. I wasn't home so Brian helped her hide them up high where I wouldn't see them. Then Saturday she couldn't wait for dad to water them so she asked for my help. She told me they were for "grandma". When Brian asked how she watered them she told her I helped her and that "Mom thinks they are for Grandma." She was pretty proud of her trickery and surprise.
nathan wrote me a note and wished me a happy day. He also asked "Do you still love us if we are mene or mad?" He was disappointed not to have another present, but i told him I get TWO mothers' days because I get to go to the kindergarten Mothers' Day Luau on Tuesday. There I get a plate decorated by my favorite kindergartener and a lei full of treats and cute notes, though I don't say this out loud because he wants it all to be a surprise. HE doesn't seem to remember that I went through this same thing last year. I also get to watch a hula dance that they ahve been practicing.
Michael read the word "moon" all by himself today. He is so bright and happy and it has been so much fun watching him learn and grow. He is so charming nad I have enjoyed this spring with him so much. He will turn four this week and I can't wait ot celebrate that with him.
Megan is still so happy and fun. She doesn't really know what today is all about, but she trotted into my room with a smile as big as anyone else's so I got the best part. I love seeing my kids happy and THAT is the best present ever.
Oh yeah, Liz made me the cutest little MOthers' Day book at school. One of the pages said, "I like it when my mom helps me with math." OK, so yes, I teared up. This is one of my favorite memories with my dad and I hope that my kids grow up not thinking I am TOO weird.
