Just popping in to say a quick Happy Mother’s Day to any moms reading!! I hope you all have a wonderful day.
In honor of Mother’s Day, I want to share something that just made my day the other day. One of those little moments that warm your heart and make you feel that all of the craziness of parenthood is SO worth the journey.
Friday morning, the boys’ school hosted their annual Muffins with Mom event on the playground before school. Basically, several volunteer dads stand out there and dole out muffins for all the moms and kids. Just a nice little gesture of appreciation for the moms! (Later this month will be a Donuts with Dad day.)
Anyway, I attended the little playground event, we got our muffins, and then as I walked over to chat with Ethan’s friend’s mom, the boys took off to play with their friends for a bit before the bell rang. Lost in conversation, I didn’t really even notice that the bell rang and the kids had lined up to head inside. After a few minutes, I realized neither of them had even stopped back over to say goodbye to me!! How rude!! sniff, sniff. hahaha.
My feelings weren’t too hurt…I know how it is. I remember being that age. 🙂
But when I got home and sat down at my computer, I noticed I had an email right away from Asher (sent from school on his school ipad at 8:05). It said:
Subject Line: Sorry
Sorry I forgot to say goodbye to you. My class was going inside and I had to go. Love you. See you soon.
❤❤❤❤ Awwwww!! I was so touched that he thought to send this. What a sweet boy. It really made my day- more than probably any regular gift ever could. 🙂
Happy Mother’s Day!! ESPECIALLY to my own most amazing, wonderful, incredible mom, who I am so immensely blessed to have in my life! Love you, Mom!!
Pics: A couple moments of solitude so far this weekend.
Photo 1= an empty house yesterday for a bit, taking a break from cleaning to enjoy a cup of tea and update my journal in the sunroom.
Photo 2= solo hot tub soak this morning with my book while everyone was still sleeping!!! Hard to really see in picture, but the tree on the left is currently flowering with the most beautiful white blooms. Perfect morning.
I am grateful that the boys can email me from school if needed now!! This isn’t the first time they have sent me a quick note about something, and it’s kind of cool to be able to be connected just briefly while they’re gone, now and then. Technology… 🙂
