Mother's Day

How sweet are kids on Mother's Day? Davis couldn't wait to let me sleep in, Abby and Katie gave me a serious back rub. The kids promised not to fight (which is all I asked for). Notice I said "promised not to" not "didn't fight." They seriously can't help it, I swear.

While I ate my cereal in bed, Davis presented me with:

Two words came to mind when I saw it - spittin' image.

The next page was:

Something about cooking him macaroni and cheese and being special. At least he's honest.

The results of an in-depth interview with me. Then, what he thought I'd say.

NOT my best recipe even though it says it is. You believe me, right?

My favorite page:

In case you aren't fluent in the written form of Davisese, it says, "If my mom were an animal, she would be a whale because you say you will eat me, but you don't." My favorite part is that we are holding fins while we hunt our prey.

And finally . . .

Clearly, lots of love.

Going from youngest to oldest, Katie drew this:

Katie's octopus legs are my favorite.

Abby gave me about a million coupons. Snaps to Abby for owning up to her most annoying habit. One guess as to what it is. I'll let you know if these coupons last more than a day.

Eden also went the coupon route. To be completely honest, I'm not big on gifts. Coupons and love are as good as it gets for me. Especially these:

I wonder what would happen if Eden was having a full-on knock-down, drag-out fight with one of her sisters and I whipped out that coupon. I think I'll try it.

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers and those villagers whom mother's couldn't survive without.

  1. Wow. You're the luckiest mom ever! I'm curious as to why Davis and Katie seem to often have "Under the Sea" moments with you. Absolutely adorable cards and love your commentary.
