Hubby Came Through; or, The Best Mother's Day Ever

Hubby came through on Mother's Day, making it the best I've ever had!

As I mentioned in my last post, he's sold quite a few books in the past few weeks, and as it turns out, he's been squirreling away some money. So, imagine my shock on Sunday morning, when he presents me with a gift bag, and I open it to find the new Burberry Summer fragrance!! I had only recently mentioned to him that I'd sniffed it at Macy's and loved it, but I had no expectations for getting it anytime soon because I know what the price tag is: out of our league. He got me a wonderful card, E gave me a cute little card with a kitty cat on it (which means she really wanted to keep it), and H designed several cards over the days preceding Sunday. On top of a fabulously unexpected and much appreciated gift, I didn't have to cook a single thing ALL DAY! We went to church with some friends to see their baby be dedicated, then we all went out to eat. Once we got home, I got another unusual gift: a NAP! As soon as E went down for her nap at 1:30, so did Mommy, and we both slept for two hours -- yay! I never get to take naps, so this is a highly extraordinary thing. Even better? When I woke up, the children were happy to sort of play together for a couple hours in the living room, while I watched some quality t.v.: The Deadliest Catch (yes, I'm a dork). Being allowed to veg in front of the t.v. is also something I rarely get to do with the kiddos around. I read lots of books to E, snuggled with H, and ended up on the couch with Hubby at night's end. It was a perfect Mother's Day, however, with any luck, next year's Mother's Day will have us welcoming home a new addition to the family, so this year may just get trumped :)

I hope all the lovely moms I know had an equally wonderful day! Now it's time to start planning for Dad!

WOW, I thought your husband might have something up his sleeve, but even I didn't expect to check your blog and read that you had the best Mother's Day ever! As for me, the silver lining is that at least my husband didn't set the bar tpo high--there's no pressure on me RE: Father's Day.
