Happy Mother's Day
I just wanted to say Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there. I had a pretty good day with both my boys. I got to watch a movie this morning, which was nice! The boys and I went out to eat with my brother, sister-in-law and niece! We ate at an Italian restaurant and I brought a delicious piece of cheese cake home that I ate later with a glass of milk.
Elijah made me a mother's book at school and it is just precious. Jacob just gave me a picture he made for me at school. I got a $15 Itunes card and I always enjoy getting one of those.
Being a mom has got to the one of the hardest jobs I have ever done, but also the most rewarding. I have been a single mom now for almost a year and I have survived it and enjoyed it. It has not always been easy, but I am thankful for these two boys everyday. Just a smile from them makes my day.
I am counting the days until we are out for the summer and headed to the beach. I am really looking forward to it!
