This morning I woke up to my little boy smiling at me. He said, “Mommy I want tickles.” So, we played tickles for a long time in bed. I had slept with him because he has been having a really hard time with his back but this morning he was feeling alright. We are at the end of the first week after his injury and things are starting to look up.
After we played tickles, he said, “I am hungry.” So, I took him to McDonalds and since it was just us we went into the restraunt to eat his 2 cinnamon melts and diet coke. But, he mispronounces cinnamon, so it sounds like cinammamon and to me it is the most endearing thing. I know now after almost losing him that if I never heard the word cinnamon mispronounced my life would not be complete. So, this mother’s day was so special to me because God saved my little boy that night. Somehow and someway my son fell out of the upstairs window and is still alive and for this I thank God with all my heart.
He was perfect in the restraunt and I even let him sit at a table. You see this was special because we usually sit at a booth and put him on the inside. Now I am thinking that perhaps he feels a bit like a trapped rat. I think whe I do put trust in him sometimes, he really suprizes me.
While we were eating, I called and asked my Mom what she wanted for mother’s day and she said, “I want a hanging basket.” So, after we ate our breakfast it was off to get the hanging baskets. I then called my brother to see what he was getting mom and we agreed that we would each get her the same thing that way she would only have to buy one more and the front of her house would be done.
So, first we went to Walmarts and their hanging baskets looked horrible. Then we went to Lowes and the mothers got a hanging red geranium basket of flowers each for mothers day. I am usually a little more in depth for their mothers day but this year has been rough so I was very glad that they chose something simple. Then Ryan and I went to Krogers and picked out cards for the mothers. My mom got a card that sang “You are so wonderful” and Mike’s mom got a card that sang “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from the Toy Story movie because that is her favorite cartoon.
Ryan and I took them to the mother’s because Dad and Caitlin were being sleepy heads. So, we then came home and woke the rest of our family up at around noon and ate some Dijornos. But, it was just nice hanging out together and being with each other. My brother was coming up with his new girlfriend who I really wanted to meet, but my son starts to really be done around 4 pm. I think by then he just wants to take his pain medicine and lay on his mother. (me)
But, right after lunch I got to go out and do a little shopping with no kids. I went to Kohl’s, Target, and Sally’s Beauty Supply. I bought some work out clothes at Kohl’s, hair supplies at Sally’s, and huge nice beach towles at Target for only $8.00 a piece. That is not bad for 7 foot beach towels.
Next is another great part of my day. When I came home my husband had bought the greatest steaks to make for my dinner, along with salad, corn on the cobb, and baked potatoes. I was so pleased. He had asked me if I wanted to eat out and I really did not. You see, my husband is a wonderful cook and we have been so busy that we have eaten out a lot lately, so I really enjoyed the food he made for me at home.
Last, we went to Tuckers Whippy Dip to get ice cream for desert. My husband and I had a turtle sundae, my son had a gian ice cream sandwich, and my daughter had an ice cream twist with a face on it. Then my little boy looked over at me and said, “Mommy its time to lay with me. I want mommy to lay with me.” Which means he is tired and ready for his bed time. So, I had a wonderful mothers day.
Thank you God, for allowing me to have my whole family with me on this mothers day. They each one are very dear to me.
