Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day Mommy! Didn't know what to get you.....

Should I write you the perfect poem?

Or help you tidy up the kitchen? (I didn't do it)

Maybe help with the laundry?

Or buy you makeup?

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~Sophia Loren

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving

Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children. ~Sam Levenson

Never raise your hand to your kids. It leaves your groin unprotected. ~Red Buttons

A man's work is from sun to sun, but a mother's work is never done. ~Author Unknown

You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back. ~William D. Tammeus

I didn't end up doing any of those things but I wanted to tell you that you're the best Mommy ever and I love you!

On the move! Part 2

Still haven't slowed down...lots to explore in this place.

Never could get in here before

Always willing to help with the recycling


Diaper party!!
