When I've missed blogging for a while, I feel like I need to catch up on everything since the last post. But I'll save that for another time and just talk about Mother's Day!
I freakin' love Mother's Day. It's like a bonus birthday. I get to foist all the ins and outs (meals and potty needs) to the father. I get breakfast made for me, a treat at church, lovely flowers, and presents. What's not to like?
Last night we got a babysitter and went to see the Amazing Spider-Man 2 at the Alamo. Great movie, great food, and fun to see Amanda and Brian. It was also good to hear that the kids were "easy" according to the sitter. Sam woke briefly screaming (teething I think) right before I went to bed, then slept until 6 AM.
Later Ben followed up with his diaper change and I got to spend another 30 minutes waking up before coming downstairs to bacon, eggs, and fruit. Jack gave me a fan with hand prints that he made in Wee School. I also got gardening gloves, cute shoes, and flowers (earlier in the week).
At church Jack went up with the primary kids to sing for the first time. He didn't know the song, but I was proud that he fearlessly went up in front of a crowd and didn't embarrass himself with fingers in inappropriate places.
At the end of church I got a slice of pie, the tradition at this ward. Before changing into comfy jammies we took pictures. I love my boys!
I might as well document the reality too. It takes many photos to get some halfway decent shots. Here's the best outtakes:
