I hope all the moms had a lovely Mother's Day! Mine was very nice. I had the school-made gifts from both my boys--a painted tile to use as a coaster from the younger and a iron-bead magnet creation from the older. The older also wrote a poem and the younger a letter. I'm including it in its entirety here:
Dear Mom, you are the best Mom I've ever had and you will allways be my faverot mom forever! I never want you to die or else all cry. I allways want you with me. If you are not with me I would be crying and I would be very very sad and mad. I would be nothing without you.
On the back is a picture of me singing, "Sunshine, sunshine" while a lizard snaps a fly off my leg with his tongue. Love it.
I got my store-bought present right before church. It was presented to me in a red Foley's box, which makes me think I need to clean out my gifting supplies as we've not had a Foley's in these parts in probably five years. Inside was a pink polka-dot shortie bathrobe, two Target gift cards (one each from my boys), and a pretty little wrapped package from Lavish, an Aveda spa near my house. Unwrapping produced a gift card and the prettily typed information that it was good for a manicure, pedicure, and a Brazilian. My eyes practically bugged out of my head, because there was no way--NO WAY--that I would be cashing that last part in. And besides, what sort of Mother's Day gift is that? I glance up at my husband (likely panic in my eyes), and he's giggling delightedly. Apparently he typed the info onto the Lavish card just to freak me out.
