It's no wonder you're so patient

...we certainly give you lots of practice!"

Or something like that. I've been looking for my mother's day card from the kids for about ten minutes now, so I could post what it said that was so funny. But alas, it has grown legs and run off been snatched back by its gracious giver. Even though I deliberately placed it out of Julia's reach (or so I thought). Oh well, I'm sure it will turn up somewhere.

Anyway, inside the card was a sweet paragraph of thank yous from each of the children. Julia's was longer and I don't remember what all it said but Josiah's read, "Thank you for keeping my belly full, my mouth wet and my bottom dry." LOVE IT! Daddy did a good job, on that AND the one that he got me from himself.

I didn't actually get those until Sunday night but the whole day was great. We started out with breakfastunch at Bayley's. Amazingly, the wait wasn't long at all. I hesitantly forewent my usual French Toast for My Mom's Favorite and a Cinnamon Waffle. Yum! The orange juice wasn't that great but what can you expect if it's not fresh squeezed, right? Wow, that just made me sound like a real food snob. Ahem.

Church, shopping (3 hours in Bed Bath and Beyond and we're still not 100% sure on the bedding we want for the master), no nap.

Pizza, ice cream and a movie. Sherlock Holmes, why did you have to be so full of wickedness? I would've finished watching but it just kept getting worse. Sigh.

Oh, and I got a super cool present from Riley. (I'm not mad, I actually requested an apron and he picked this one out! Isn't it adorable?

Wish I could've been with my mom Sunday, but I'm glad she's planning to come for a visit in a few weeks. Yay!

Tomorrow's our 3rd anniversary, woohoo!

Oh and here are the little darlings that make my job as a mommy so rewarding! (You didn't actually think you'd get to read a non-food post without being subjected to pictures of my precious children, did you?!)
