I know, I know -- you're all expecting a Mother's Day post today but I'm switching things up a bit. That's mostly because both kids had the stomach flu this past weekend and so yesterday, on Mother's Day, I was exhausted and we couldn't go anywhere. So, in our family's typical fashion (see here, here, and here for examples!), we are postponing Mother's Day until next weekend when hopefully we'll all have recovered from this weekend.
And then on Wednesday, I celebrated my last Mother's Day Tea with Rachel at her preschool. This has been a staple for the past three years and I will miss it next year. (Sidenote: Sam's school doesn't so anything to celebrate Mother's or Father's Day due to it being a painful holiday for kids who don't have one of those parents. I respect that, but it means I don't get cute crafts from Sam anymore.)
All the other moms thought it was adorable that Rachel said I was her best friend but it totally made me laugh because she always says, "Daddy is my best friend EVER!" which is true and I don't mind because it means she always picks Dave to help her in the bathroom or put her to bed :)
So that's just a little of what we've already celebrated in May. And today I am celebrating that we are all healthy (prayers said, fingers crossed), and that life is back to normal. Which means a lot more leaving the house and a lot less changing the bedding. Yay!
