My mothers day began yesterday morning when we slept in until 9 a.m., followed by a leisurely shower and breakfast at Mimi's Cafe. They serve this amazing French Toast Berry Bain Perdue. Oh my heavens! There is something about cream cheese and orange marmalade stuffed between french toast. It was a great way to start the day.
For a change we didn't have anything planned, just did what we wanted and spent the time as a family. The children were able to climb all over fire trucks that were in the strip mall parking lot. Who knows why they were there. I imagine they were put there for the sole purpose of bringing joy to our children's eyes. Don't you think? lol
We then went to a "new" park and the key word was "new" for Miss Boo. She wasn't having any of the old parks this day. They played and played! Then we fed the geese, or should I say the fish. The fish and I mean a lot of fish came popping out of the water as if they hadn't eaten in days. It was crazy! Fun for the kids, but something else to see. The geese had babies and that was fun. Miss Boo wasn't sure what to make of their hissing, but we told her they were talking to her. That was enough.
I was able to finish my computer corner armoire for my office/sanctuary/space. Can't wait until we can get it moved in. I don't like being able to see my stuff. I know! A little weird and OCD.
I have enjoyed this Mothers Day. So proud of my children. The Dude actually used the bathroom by himself in Nursery today. Didn't turn out well, but I couldn't be prouder of this "huge" step towards self reliance. Miss Boo went to Primary without the usual fanfare, so it was pleasant. I was able to enjoy being in Young Womens without being called out more than once.
Oh, and Mr. Finn took me to a movie on Friday night to start out this holiday weekend by seeing the new Star Trek movie. Way cool! Nice evening for us. Grateful that he still wants to spend time alone with me after all these years.
I actually feel relaxed.
Happy Mothers Day to all those Mothers out there that I admire so much.
