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?
