It is Mother’s Day in the States today.
It feels odd to be celebrating it on a different day than all my friends back home did.
In March, hubby and the kids bought me flowers to celebrate the UK Mother’s Day, which was lovely.
So, I feel very lucky to have been allowed to mark two Mother’s Days this year!
This morning I was woken by two very excited boys who wanted to give me the presents and cards that they had made me :)
Hubby had bought some modelling clay (the bake in the oven stuff) and the boys had spent ages making me a present. The 6yo made ‘me’… The 4yo made me a heart and a flower, all covered with sparkly hearts :) Hubby bought me wine!
According to the 6yo’s Mother’s Day ‘book’ I look just like him, I weigh 2lbs (!), I am very good at babysitting, he would buy me gold if he could and he would not swap me, not even for every Skylander :)
Instead of flowers, my wonderful husband made a donation to The Lullaby Trust in my name, in memory of Matilda Mae. This was so much better than flowers, and I was really touched that he had realised how much this would mean to me.
In the afternoon we went for a lovely walk – taking in a tower, pond, woods and some interesting wildlife! We saw a snake and a turtle/terrapin (I’m going to have to google to check!)… I then had an hour to myself with tea and cake!
