The Day of the Mother

Look a picture of me 8 months pregnant. Isn't it flattering? I did the girl's hair in pin curls and they loved the effect. The girls and Mike made me awesome cards and Mike is finishing the nursery for my mother's day present. He also promised me he would do the dishes and laundry for the first month of our new baby's life, remember honey?  Now here is where I should write something about how much I love being a mom. Ummm. . . I do love it, but maybe you should catch me some other time when I'm not 8.5 months pregnant and dealing with a 3-year-old that hates EVERYTHING. Because I do like it. Really. I promise.

We gave my mom a picture album with pictures of our favorite memories of her in the last few years. I love you mom! Thank you for all you have done for me.

Me, my Grandma Bette and my mom. I sure love these women and I am grateful for the role they have played in my life. Do you think we all look alike?

Here we are on my mom's back stairs.  We were lucky that my Grandma was in town to celebrate Mother's Day with us.

My mother-in-law Shirley is one of my favorite people. We gave her some china to match her other plates. Thank you Shirley for raising Mike. He is amazing, which means you are doubly amazing.

Hello! I read your post on MMB and had an idea for you for your quiet time. I have the kiddoes do a couple different things during quiet time. They play in the room till they start getting routy, then they get to color or draw for a while, read some books, or watch a short show/movie. I found that they get bored easy if I tried to have them do the same thing for more than an hour. This works really well for me, I have three kiddoes and baby-sit all my neices and nephews and a few cousins too, so at times I have up to 12 kiddoes running around.
Hope you find something to work for you, quiet time is a must for all mommies! lol :)
