Perfect Moment Monday: My children worship at my feet. See?

Mother’s Day last week brought many perfect moments — I got to spend it with my mom, my sisters and my kids, as well as with other male-type relatives.

But there were two crowning glories to my Mother’s Day.

First was this chart that Reed greeted me with first thing in the morning. Followed, of course, by a big hug and kiss.

My Mom is T-rriffic: She loves me | My mom buys toys | Hugs me | Is my friend | Plays with me | Is an awesome mom | Gives me money | Kisses me and my sister | Helps me and friends.

I’m not sure I’ve earned all these squares (the money is called “allowance”) but I’m deeply fulfilled that he knows how much I adore and love him.

Second was when Grandma (my mom) coached the kids into giving their maternal elders pedicures, which they did eagerly.

Here are Tessa’s and Reed’s perfect finished products:

I kept my toes this way all week and smiled every time I looked down at them.

Would it be wrong of me to lead my children to believe that Mother’s Day comes every month?


Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join.

  1. Belated Happy Blogoversary!

    Reed made you a beautiful note, and I am sure the kisses and hugs were superb. Love the toes!

    Actually they celebrate Mother’s Day every fortnight.

  2. Love the toes! And I think you would be completely within your rights to get your kids to appreciate their mama that way once a month… 😉 xo

  3. I love the thoughtful and creative ways that your children chose to celebrate you for Mother’s Day this year! Reed’s note is awesome and the “gives me money” one cracked me up! I also love those toes and the image of your daughter and son painting them for you. I don’t see anything wrong with allowing your kids to believe Mother’s Day is a monthly holiday! :)

  4. look at those PERFECT TOES!!!!! wow.

    I enjoy watching your kiddos ADORING you…the way I do. :)

    Mother’s Day every Sunday…I’m in!

  5. Oh my G-d — that is awesome. I’ve actually never thought to let the twins try painting my nails. Am I daring enough? Can my skin handle it?
