Happy mother’s day! I started thinking that although my dad makes an appearance on the blog every now and then, you’ve seen very little of my mother. That’s because when my dad and I are working on house projects, she’s doing the really hard, behind-the-scenes work—watching my kids!
She has shown me a wonderful example of how to be a good mom, always putting us first, encouraging us, and doing very little for herself. She’s also a fun grandmommy—just ask my kids!
I realized when looking for photos for this post that I have very few pictures of myself with my mom. In fact, we have very few pictures of my mom at all. She’s quite the photographer and is always behind the camera.
Here’s one of our whole family at Thanksgiving that she posted to Facebook shortly after we made our announcement about the twins :)
My own mother’s day around here is off to a wonderful start. I was surprised with new beach chairs, a People magazine subscription (my guilty pleasure!), some (slightly opened/eaten) candy and a few interesting creations made from pipe cleaners :)
And, don’t you love the treats your kids bring home from school for Mother’s day? Here was a “mommy fact sheet” that my 6-year-old daughter made for me. Maybe I won’t be remembered for my great culinary skills, but I can live with that. . .
And, check out the babies in my belly. . .
And, finally, I have a winner to announce for the FTD Better Homes & Gardens bouquet giveaway:
Congrats to Jessie, who said . . .
(Obviously, Jessie’s mom mastered more than macaroni. . . )
Check back tomorrow. I’ll be featuring bloggers and their moms as my Send Me a Picture series continues. Have a happy day!
