They also spoil me with their love, attention, and time. Saturday we went to the kids' school and played out on the field. We played bocce ball, croquet, and catch with a baseball and mitts. Then we went to our community center and played pool (my favorite!), and then went geocaching. I love spending time as a family. That night we had a games marathon where we all wrote games we wanted to play on a scrap of paper that went into a hat. I got to draw the pieces of paper out and we would play whatever the paper said. It was lots of fun.
Sunday I was treated to a delicious breakfast and then cards and gifts. My son made this cute clay heart for me at school. I love these homemade gifts.
He also gave me the cutest little homemade coupons for me to cash in. They were doing dishes, going for a walk with me, and going grocery shopping. I laughed out loud at that last one. I think he might need my help on that one. And he wrapped up a few coins for me, so cute!
My daughter put her jewelry skills to work and made me this beautiful bookmark. And she wrote me a lovely card. She told me this past week that she can't wait to be a mom and that she has learned how to be a good mom from me. Awww, so sweet! (I'm glad she feels that way even though often I feel like have a lot to improve on)
At one of the "meetings" my husband and kids were having leading up to Mother's Day, my husband asked them what they think I would want as a gift. They both said definitely this...
... and that's what I got!! I was so excited and surprised that my kids knew about them! I have been wanting these beautiful interchangeable needles for a while now. They will make my sweater and lace knitting so enjoyable.
I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend as well. I feel so blessed that I have the opportunity to be a mother. It is a huge responsibility, but I would never want it any other way.
