Mother's Day Recap!

Don't miss my Monogram Giveaway!

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

On Saturday I took the Little Prince to visit my mother-in-law so that was a nice way to spend a few hours.  I tried to see my own mother but her mall and grocery shopping plans were too important to change (or so she told me when I finally got a hold of her) so I just left her cards and potted flowers on her front step.  Of course Sunday brought the angry phone calls...

Mother:  I thought you were coming over here yesterday!!
Me:  Uhhhhh well you did tell me you weren't going to be home.
Mother:  We decided not to go out since you told me you were coming over!!!
Me:  How was I supposed to know that?  I left your stuff on the front step.
Mother:  I never saw anything on my front step!  I go in the house through the garage!!
Me:  How am I supposed to know that?
Mother:  I thought you would've rung the bell...we were sitting there waiting for you!!
Me:  Why would I ring the bell when you told me you wouldn't be home?  You could've called me to tell me...I do have a cell phone.
Mother:  I dont know your cell phone number!!!!
Me:  It's the same number I have had for 10 years.

It just deteriorated from there.  I'm a lucky girl eh!  My mother keeps talking about moving to Florida...I think she thinks that would be some sort of punishment for me.  I hate to inflict her on Florida but it would make life a lot easier for me!


The Suburban Prince got up and took care of the Little Prince...we all snuggled in the big bed for a while then the boys went outside to play while I read my book and took my time getting up - not an easy task for an A-type like me!

The Little Prince made a picture for me and his teacher framed it, he even made the wrapping paper!  The Suburban Prince gave me an everbearing strawberry plant for the back patio!

For the rest of the day I was waited on hand and foot and didn't even have to the up the kitchen!  I told the Suburban Prince I didn't need any presents...especially anything I need to look after or clean up!  When I got up this morning the kitchen was tidy!  As I said to Beth Dunn yesterday, who needs grand gestures when a man will do dishes?!

Have a fabulous day!

Sorry to hear about the exchange with your mum :(
Sounds like you had a wonderful Mother's Day with your boys and I absolutely agree with you-there is nothing like a man who is handy with a sponge and some Palmolive!

How awesome to wake up to a tidy kitchen (and not having been the one to clean up)!!! I would take that too!
Have a great day!

Sounds like y'all had a great time! Sorry about your mother, I know you're kicking yourself for not ringing the bell, oh well, but how were you to know, when you thought she wouldn't be there, right?

ugh, sorry about your mom! Your day sounds similar to mine! DH did all the laundry, and dishes all day. :) Now that's a mother's day!

Sounds like you started off with "Mutha's Day" (bad joke) but glad it turned into Mother's Day! :)

I am grateful to my Mom that she taught me how to be the Mother she was not... And how lucky the LP is!

Sorry about your mom! Glad you had a wonderful mother's day despite that.

It sounded exactly like a conversation with my mother. That is, if I were still speaking to her, LOL!
