I know I'm late, but I'm lazy

Mother's Day was last Sunday, and it was wonderful. This was the best Mother's Day I've ever had. Usually my kids make me breakfast in bed, which sounds nice and all, but I really don't like it. I'd prefer a bowl of cereal and some extra rest over a hot breakfast any day. So I asked Dario not to do it this year, and they complied. And I actually got to sleep late. (Well, kind of. We had church at 9am.)

So I woke up and Dario had gotten all the kids dressed and fed and I only had to take care of myself before church. There were cards from Dario and the kids on my bedside table when I woke up. And the kids had made me gifts at school.

When I picked Roman up from the nursery at church, he yelled out, "Happy Mother's Day!" and handed me a little red envelope with a noodle and bead necklace in it that he had made. It was so cute and he even helped me put it on and told me it looked pretty.

Then after church, Dario fed the kids lunch and got supper in the crock pot while I took a nice long nap. He came to nap with me after he put Roman down and I heard him tell the kids, "If you need anything you come to me. Do not disturb Mommy." That was SO nice. They always come straight to my side of the bed.

When I woke up, Gabby gave me a card and a treat she had made while I was sleeping. The card said, 'Dear Mom, Happy Mother's Day! I'm so glad that your my mom! I know its hard but deal with it ok? Love you! Love your daughter Gabby.' For dessert she partially melted chocolate chips in the microwave and spread them on a plate and then topped them with peanut butter, peanuts, and heart-shaped sprinkles. And she told me she even scraped off the burnt parts from the chocolate chips for me. How nice. ;)

I relaxed the rest of the day and Dario played with the kids while I read my book and did what I liked. It was an absolutely wonderful day.

PS! How could I forget? The night before Dario had bought me some chocolate-covered strawberries which were delicious of course, and then on Mother's Day at some point he gave me two bags of chocolate- one was Dove bites and the other was Dove chocolate covered almonds. SO GOOD.

Happy Mother's Day to you! I was just going through boxes of stuff and found your Christmas card with the blog address on it and thought I'd check you out. I started a blog this year too, check it out if you'd like.
