Then, today, ....Ed let me sleep in late this morning, he did baby-duty all night long last night, and he made my favorite breakfast....french toast. But, best yet....he taught the girls to greet me with "Happy Mothers Day!" this morning...(actually, it sounded like "happy mudders day") when I came into the breakfast nook. They then proceeded to repeat their chant all day long and it melted my heart every single time they said it. Ooh, they learn quickly what Mommy loves. At one point, after one of Sammi's tantrums today, she looked-up at me and said "Happy Mudders Day, Mommy, I love you so much!" (yep, that was a melt-y moment...)
We then dressed-up in the beautiful kimonos Conkle Jay-Jay sent us from Korea (thanks thanks again....they loved them...) and we took off for a day at the Children's Museum. Jason, the girls insisted on wearing the kimonos all day long.....even at the museum. Wow, they were cuties...everywhere we went everyone was grinning at them all dressed-up in those lovely outfits. "Thank you!!"
Then, we came home, we all played and tumbled for hours this evening, and then read an extra stack (ok, stacks!!) of books at bedtime. Just can't get better than this, can it!
Thanks, Ed....thanks Sammi and Nicki....for making this a very special Mother's Day weekend! I truly do hope that each of your own Mother's Day was as special and joy-filled as mine. I so remember trying to get and then stay pregnant over those 11 years of endeavor until we turned to adoption for our family. Then, the tough tough oh-so-tough years of waiting were not any easier. But, I'll say this once more.....if I had to endure all of that all over again to get these two little angels in our life, I'd so do it in a skinny minute. Keep your chins up, you Moms-to-Be.....keep your chins up......
