Mother’s Day list Success 2013

I was so bummed out yesterday thinking about how much I love my kids & husband, how special they are, & how they weren’t even thinking about Mother’s Day coming up. I knew I’d made my list & posted it everywhere I thought they may see it, but I just didn’t see that it was doing any good ๐Ÿ™ This bag of trash sat in a very obvious place for 16 1/2 hours as I counted 37 trips they made back & forth past it ๐Ÿ™

I woke up this morning and discovered I was alone. Odd. I filled up a cup of coffee & came back to the bedroom. Shortly afterwards my husband came through the door with breakfast & a large hazelnut latte! ๐Ÿ™‚

Soon after I ate a few bites my husband comes in & says, “Chrissy come with me. I’m fed up with these boys. Please, just…come to the kitchen.” Sadly I followed him thinking there would be a new sticky mess somewhere. ๐Ÿ™
This is what I saw ๐Ÿ™‚

All 3 boys were standing there ๐Ÿ™‚ I got a hug from each one!
I came back to eat my breakfast. After a few more bites Nick said to come outside…

**Oh!!!** ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish these were scratch-N-sniff pictures because it smells so good. You’d never know I taxi sweaty teenagers around 6 days a week!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m in heaven!! It took him over 2 hours to clean out the car, vacuum it, & organize the trunk! He said the boys helped get their things out, but he couldn’t believe how much crap was tucked in & under places in the car. (Sounds about right!) He lectured the kids for me and definitely feels my pain.

Next, was the new flower garden ๐Ÿ™‚ Everyone participated. They dug holes for me, helped me weed & even decorate. I’m now the proud owner of a sea shell garden only 200-250 miles away from the beach ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I was so happy (mainly because the boys showed appreciation). I would frame yesterday and keep it forever if I could, but since my memory is failing me, I wrote about it so I can remember ๐Ÿ™‚ Did you have a good Mother’s Day Ginger?
