Happy Mother's Day!!!

This weekend is great! Wow! Yesterday was my birthday and today is Mother's Day so I have the advantage of being spoiled for 2 days in a row! When I woke up yesterday I noticed two beautiful bouquets of flowers. They are so pretty. I love having fresh flowers in the house. It makes me feel so alive. DH did good this year!

If you haven't heard, SoML is having a Mother's Day Sale on all kits- the April kit which is full of BamPop papers, and the May kit which has 7Gypsies Hudson Valley papers and Cosmo Cricket papers AND the add-on for May which has Imagination Project Yesterdays papers and coasters. Everything is so delicious.

I am actually planning on creating today with the May kit and add-on.
Last night I went to my fav resurant with my friend for my birthday diner. She hooked it up- had a babysitter and everything set to go out. I love that becuase I always get stuck with seraching for a babysitter. For those of you who are moms, you know how hard tha can be. And how disappointing it can be when you can't find someone to watch the kiddos for ya. We stopped at Walmart after and I found 2 shirts- one is a flowey spaghetti strap top with the cutest little flowers and I found a tank top with what other than CHICKIES!!! Had to have that. A girl can't ever have too many birdies, right! I need to go back on Thursday to get a pair of madras shorts and a little white cropped zip up sweater. Walmart is stepping it up for us! Finally!

Later today, mayb after noon when it's warmer I will take the kids down to the field again. I picked up a new bat and another t ball to pratice with my son. DH is working nights and sleeping most of the morning so I get to do the fun sports stuff with the kids. I am hoping we can practice enough that Jaden can hit the ball without the "T". More than likey it will take a lot of practice! Some of the time I'm not sure if he's playing baseball or ballerina because when he swings he twirls around! lol
We went to his game yesterday which was a hoot. They actually played the game instead of kicking sand around. Jaden ran the bases in the right direction both times he got up- and didn't get out. So he scored two points for his team. At the end of every inning they even the score out so no one actually looses. I am not sure if I think that's a good thing or a not-so-good thing. I do want him to learn that losing is okay and next time try harder. But then I dont' want him to cry if they lose and then deal with him possibly not be interested in playing the game. But I have to remember they are 4 and 5 year olds and it's about making friends and having fun too - not winning or losing. Maybe they should just not bother keeping a score at all. ;)
For being a great team player I gifted him a pack of Big League Chew
- remember those!

Happy Mother's Day!
