Happy Mothers' Day

Last Saturday, Wayne and I took the whole posse of kids to Opening Day at Sesame Place.  It was rainy and miserable but we had a good time.  While in one of the gift shops I noticed a tiny corner with scrapbooking supplies.  OOH!  They had a Sesame Street themed album and a bunch of stickers and papers.  I wanted it.  We go to Sesame Place a LOT.  Still, I told Wayne I'd get it another day and walked out of the store.  Later on, Wayne disappeared for a long time to take Lexi to get some cotton candy before the parade.  He returned holding a suspicious, flat, squarish bag.  Happy Mothers' Day for me!

On Wednesday, while Wayne and I were painting the living room, I saw the UPS truck stop in front of the house and pull out a big, green Proflowers box.  I glared at Wayne because I told him no flowers for Mothers' Day.  He shrugged as the UPS man walked up the driveway.  I was so confused.

Inside the box was like 100 small, multicolored lilies.  The bouquet was so big, i had to break it into two vases to really show off the blooms.  the card said:

When I asked Andy what he would get you for a present, he said, "Love."  When I asked what else, he said, "Proflowers at Proflowers.com."

Joey would give you Wall-e.

When I placed the order, he said, "I love my M-O-M-M-Y."

With Love from Andy and Joey

Steve ordered flowers for me from the boys.  I was very touched. 

Yesterday, before Lexi and Nahan left to go back to their mom's house, all the kids came out with a card, they'd signed themselves, a bouquet of daisies and a digital photo keychain for me.

This morning, I slept in until 9:30 and woke up to a bacon and egg breakfast on the table, waiting for me. 

This Mothers' Day, I am feeling very loved and very spoiled.

Right now, Joey and Wayne are napping.  Andy is playing games at Sprout.com and I'm about to go outside and get the newspaper.  Later on, I think we may go play mini-golf or head to a park so the boys can run around and I can look at them and get all weepy over how much I adore them.

yeah that was a beautiful guesture on steve's part. not that wayne and the other children't weren't either. I just know that there is tension there at times and it just struck me as a very healing, respectful, special thing to do.
