Happy Mother's Day to all of the mommas that read my blog from near and far. Hugs to each and every one of you. I hope your day was as wonderful as my own. I was treated like a queen, complete with gifts for summertime in Michigan (including new popsicle sailboat molds that "you can make us popsicles in Mom!!"), a lazy morning, a wonderful family brunch, and even a relaxing evening being "mothered" by a four-year-old who was happy that her "baby" was taking a nap. Perfect.
This weekend I was able to spend time with so many of my favorite mothers. Friday night was perfect, hanging with one of my favorite friends, who mothers three boys with fun as the focus. I love that our kids are growing up together and even had their own table at dinner. The kids loved it...and so did the parents. Not sure about the wait staff...

Last night my parents came over for a low key dinner. My mom "grandparents" (a verb) my children every Monday while I am at work, but I love to spend time with them all together. Witnessing the awesome relationship that my kids have with my parents just warms my heart.
Today we had a wonderful brunch with more food than you could ever imagine at my mother-in-law's house. At this point in our relationship, it's time to drop that "in-law" status. She has been in my life for sixteen years and has superseded that "in-law" tag long ago. Anyway, we had a wonderful time with aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and even great-grandparents. Awesome. How could you possibly celebrate Mother's Day without a fun round of Disney Hedbanz? The kids were in Heaven. I loved it too - I could watch and enjoy...without even having to wear a pair of silly ears.

We take this very seriously.
Of course, there were several wonderful women that I was missing today. Some too far to visit, like my baby sister celebrating her very first Mother's Day. Others, gone from this Earth and on to a better place. A special hug to all of you mothers missing your own mother today. I hope that wonderful memories filled your day with a smile.
Hope to see you back on Tuesday at the latest...I better write a list...before you all give up on me!
