Yesterday Noah went along with me on some errands, and he had money in his pocket
told me to not look, go over there, while he went to the register, and he smiled so big and held a bag NO PEEKING.
And I couldn't believe how big he was.
We listened to a song together in the car and he sang out loud, did hand-motions, and he wasn't em-barrassed.
This morning I received a ruffle apron, a green beaded ring, and the biggest red coffee cup you ever saw.
It's fun to get presents. I love mostly that my children get me.
We are hosting a Mother's Day/birthday for hubby lunch today and I made one roast for Italian beef sandwiches last night and have another roast in the oven now.
(I totally am planning on going vegan again but these sandwiches are so great for parties and I love my recipe: roast, can of beef broth, bottle of beer, packet of onion mix, garlic salt, sugar, bake in a covered baker in the oven at 300 degrees for several hours until it falls apart. Don't skimp on the rolls- serve on the good kind, with grilled green peppers and onions.)
I'm getting the house ready for both sides of our family. I've got my apron on, and even my heels. And my green ring.
I made cupcakes last night, too, and just finished icing them.
Noah looked at everything in the kitchen when he got up and said You did all this? Did you sleep?!
Ivy has a runny nose and Gray has had a very bad no good day because his shirt has A COLLAR! And A TAG!
I have a mountain of dishes to wash, floors to vacuum, bathrooms to clean before people come.
But it's good, I'm happy. My heart is so full.
Happy Mother's Day
