My kids know the way to my heart. They should, they are what makes my heart tick.
This Mother’s Day I was completely spoilt – they are so good to me.
Sorry Lisa, by the way, to hear that your husband went fishing. Don’t hate me. I have a parcel for you being sent soon. I promise.
It started with a sleep-in. Oh and boy was it a sleep in. I dragged my lazy butt out of bed at 10.30. Then I wasn’t allowed to come out… obviously some surprise going on, so I got ready and sat on the bed for another 15 minutes till I was allowed to come out.
I was ushered to the lounge where I was served egg on toast by Child#2, who is a great cook, and sang to by Child #1, who is not a good singer. Whilst eating my breakfast I was showered with handmade gifts and cards… looksee what I got.
Now I just love the handmade stuff, and the night before when #2 is fossicking through my stuff looking for Glossy Accents and beads I know she’s up to something. And then #’s 3 and 4 come looking for magnetic material (for clasps on the purses) it gets me wondering. And whilst I am wondering, I am secretly pleased that my stash of stuff is interesting to them, and even more pleased that they know what Glossy Accents is, and how to use the magnetic material.
I just love the detail on these. They made them for me. ME. They love me. I am the luckiest woman alive. I have 4 beautiful children who love me. One who now has a blue hand. And one fantastic husband who made sure I did absolutely nothing all day, except sit and watch “chic flicks”, eat marshmallows and have a neck massage. He even took me to my Mothers.
Check out those beads on the ribbons for a necklace! I will wear them with pride – made with love from my baby girl. And those purse cards – my boys rock!
And all four let me take a photo of them. It was not willingly, but I got a photo of them. “Just smile the biggest fakest smile, pretend like this is the happiest day of your life” Better than sour pus frowns. But they did it, and I got a shot, albeit under sufferance.
Lucky lucky lucky. And no fishing.
