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 🙁 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 🙁
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! 🙂
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. 🙁
This is what I saw 🙂
All 3 boys were standing there 🙂 I got a hug from each one!
I came back to eat my breakfast. After a few more bites Nick said to come outside…
*Gasp* The car was clean!!!
**Oh!!!** 🙂 🙂 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!!! 🙂 🙂
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 🙂 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 🙂
I’m one happy Momma!
Happy Mother’s Day everyone!!! 🙂

It was a most special day indeed 🙂 Thank you Isadora
Awww that’s awesome!! Lets just hope rain doesn’t wash away all those pretty shells. Tell the hubs he can come clean my car next!!!!!
Okay, I’ll tell him. (I doubt he’ll drive 7 1/2 hours to get to you though) 🙁 Hahahaha
OH How Rocking!!!!
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 🙂 Did you have a good Mother’s Day Ginger?
I LOVE it!!!
