Mothers' Day

What a fantastic Sunday.  Nick made sure that the kids kept me in the forefront of their minds all day.  It began with "sleeping in" while Nick and the kids made french toast.  I say use quotes because in this one-bedroom apartment, my bed is roughly 18 inches from the table where they worked.  What is even better than sleeping in while your kids cook?  Pretending to sleep in while you watch your three year-old learn to crack eggs and sprinkle cinnamon and try to remember to whisper.

My other surprises included these little pretties.
And a shine on my "second home," inside and out.
It was a lovely day.  But I will say without fear of those who may not always feel the same, it wasn't too different from every day that Nick is around.  He is so good at teaching our kids to respect and love me.  Thank you, my little ones and my husband!  It's not all sunshine and roses, but I am so glad to be a mother.
