I've had an awesome Mother's day week! The girls plotted and planned and Sarah executed the gifts since Molly was at school with me.
Monday: Sonic Diet Coke!
Tuesday: Banana Nut Muffin from the bakery
Wednesday: Flowers and a decorated cupcake
Thursday: Basket of awesome office supplies
Friday: Lunch at Taco Factory
(Ha! We forgot the camera so here's a cruise meal picture! Why am I looking at Sarah like that???)
Sunday: Time with me! And Molly sat with me in church!
I found out today that I have taught them something. Besides the use of sarcasm, I mean.
We were in the pickup on the way to my parents and Les had found a CD we hadn't listened to in awhile. We were singing along to "Little Big Town" and talking about harmonizing and the girls both said they learned to sing sitting with me in church! Wow! Les is the singer and I've always felt a poor second to his awesome voice so that really surprised me and about made me cry!
Other things (they say) I've taught them:
To love random bits of information
How to measure flour and brown sugar
To enjoy and perhaps prefer crispy (overdone!) cookies
How to cite information for research papers
To give butterfly kisses
How to prevent Toxic Shock Syndrome
To love and appreciate old (and perhaps sometimes musty and dusty) stuff
How to French Braid
That I will kill them if they get pregnant before they are married
Things they've taught me.
It's probably ok to lick your plate in the privacy of your own home
You can tell the difference between dirty and clean clothes in the same pile
Laugh, laugh, laugh
A little fit throwing sometimes can get alot accomplished
Sleep is good
America's Next Top Model can be addicting
Don't be afraid to try new things
Always carry your camera and a journal
Thanks girls, I had a terrific week!
(p.s. I had planned to post about all the awesome women in my life with pictures of moms, grandmas and great-grandmas. I thought I would. I'm thoughtful like that....I just wish I could follow through on my thoughtfulness...maybe next year!)
