I hope all my wonderful mommy readers had a beautiful day! My littles were grumpy (they both have colds), and the day didn't go as planned. At all. I was a little grumpy, too, mostly because I was dreading Monday.
This is the view I came out to see in the morning (after my wonderful husband let me go back to sleep for a couple hours after my 6:00 am wakeup call). The beautiful garden stone was my thoughtful mom-in-law's idea and creation when she was out a few weeks ago. I absolutely love it; both of my kiddos' handprints are on it, and Paityn decorated it herself.
Dan bought me my "Olivia necklace" to match my "Paityn necklace." Paityn's is a peridot and Olivia's is a rose quartz. I've worn them every day since. I love having reminders of my lovies close to my heart when I'm away from them.
Ignore the crazy bed head, please, both for Paityn and I. It had been a very long night.
All in all, though, I can't think of a better way to spend Mother's Day than being a mama to my children. Whether they are sick and grumpy or healthy and happy, they are my loves. Paityn wished me a Happy Mother's Day several times and told me that she loved me and that I was "the best mommy."
I'm glad she still loves me even when I'm grouchy.
And at the end of the day, after Paityn was sleeping and I was holding a snoozing Livie, my husband turned to me and said, "You really are an amazing mother."
I'm glad he still loves me even when I'm grouchy, too.
