Warning: Picture overload! But whatever, its my day!!
My mothers day started the way most of my mornings start, with little chilly Isaac in my bed, scratching my back.
Isaac’s heart is kind, and he loves getting his back scratched more than anything…therefore he loves to scratch other people’s backs for them! (even people from the opposing t-ball team who are standing on base with him!)
The next thing I knew it was 9 am (the longest I’ve slept in in YEARS!) and I fairly floated downstairs to awaiting coffee and muesli.
The boys had given me my present the day before (a beautiful flower basket with blue flowers, picked specifically because they know blue is my favorite color), but they gave me lots of kisses, and Joseph gave me his FOURTH card of the week, (not pictured) which mostly featured him describing how much he didn’t want to go back to school the next day after a four day weekend! haha!
(I don’t actually like to wear dresses much, but other than that he nailed it!)
Let me just tell you that there is nothing better than the sound of your husband cleaning up the breakfast mess while you take a hot shower!! BY YOURSELF!!! It made me want to marry him all over again!
Then there was church, Chipotle for lunch, and a nap! (Let me just tell you there is nothing better than the sound of your husband cleaning up the kitchen again while you drift off to nap!)
Lastly, it was off to my mother in laws for a BBQ and fire- complete with a tractor ride, and our first s’mores of the season!
(Brian explaining why we can’t step into the fire pit to grab something out of the fire “real quick”. Party pooper!!)
Motherhood has been…surprising for me. Not what I had imagined, but so powerful and sweet and such an honor for me.
I am so blessed!
Dear Future Caitlin,
I’m sure that you are looking at these pictures and feeling sad that you can’t hug these little guys. Maybe regretting that you were not more patient, and wishing you could go back to change a few things. But, I just want to tell you- dear old lady Caitlin- that every day (good or bad!) you really, really, really tried your very best. Also, I just gave those stinkers a hug for you, and Isaac made himself toot. So…
enjoy the quiet for me?
