She Declared it “Mom Day”

She Declared it “Mom Day”

It was Saturday. I was cranky and every inch of my body ached. She knocked on my door and said “Mom, come see this.” I wasn’t too excited to get up from resting my aching muscles, but I did.

She walked me to the kitchen. She said, “Today is Mom Day, look.” She pointed to the calendar white board where she wrote in with a dry eraser “Mom Day.” Bless her heart for having the sense to use the right marker. It was the cutest thing ever.

Liv also handed me a card that she made for me. She is always so thoughtful that sometimes I can’t help but hold and squeeze her. Saturday was declared my day off by Liv and I was sent away to rest on my bed. She insisted.

How did I birth such an amazing human? I know, but I don’t want to toot my own horn.

What are some of the sweetest things that your child/children have done for you?

To Snow Days

To Snow Days

We had the first real snow day today, and the girls were so excited. They’ve been asking about snow since fall started and they couldn’t be any happier.

Severe back pain couldn’t stop me, because there was no way we would be indoors with that powdery blanket of snow just calling us.

We have the perfect hill to sled down and so they did. It turned out to be a fantastic afternoon and I am hoping to have more snow days like this.

Hot cocoa anyone?!

What are you favorite things to do on snowy days?
