Mother’s Day Recap

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:00 am

I spent the majority of my day sitting here:

Looking out here:

And watched a lot of this:

Then we went to dinner with this lady:

Because, you know, she kinda gave birth to me and all that.

It was a great day…a great weekend, actually.

I hope all the other Mom’s and Mom’s-to-be who visit me, each day, had a wonderful Mother’s Day, as well!

Mother’s Day Belated

I had the most delicious picnic yesterday.

Monkey in the Middle’s kindergarten class does a belated Mother’s Day celebration where the kids and their moms meet for lunch on the lawn in front of the school and have a picnic.

We packed our own lunches and spent time together and just got to spend a nice hour together in the middle of an otherwise hectic day. It was wonderful!

Mother’s Day

…and then there was this homemade card from Baby Monkey.

See if you can figure out what it is.

It’s quite touching, really.

Did you figure it out?

Okay, I’ll help.

For Mother’s Day, Baby Monkey drew me a picture of the explosion that ruined our local public library last week.

He said, “I know how much you love the library, so I drew you a picture of the library explosion!”

Nothing says love like an explosion picture.

I have to say, this was a banner Mother’s Day.

I spent the day with my parents, my monkey babies, and Real Man.

We laughed and played and just enjoyed ourselves all day long.

Here’s hoping that all of the other mothers, mothers-to-be, mother-in-laws, grandmothers, and every other kind of mother there is out there had a wonderful day, as well!

Happy Mother’s Day!
