Mother's Day

Yesterday was my first "real" Mother's Day, although Munchkin has always sort of celebrated Mother's Day for me in the past. And I had a wonderful day:-)

Smoking Hot Roommate and Big Sis (who is very, very, very pregnant!!!) have a standing date every Mother's Day morning, so Munchkin came over to take me out to breakfast! She also brought me flowers and a card that was super cute and made me a little weepy. The Boy watched the baby girls for a little bit and we had a wonderfully adult visit.

It is the first time in almost a month now that we have been able to sit down just the two of us to talk, and it was a real pleasure. We got all caught up on school and friends and boys and her travel plans and work plans and all sorts of other stuff. That girl seriously has her shit together and she is just a complete joy to be around all the time. And she is a couple of weeks away from being a high schooler...gulp.

We went out to The Boy's parent's house yesterday afternoon because his Mother is very much in line to get my Mother of the Year vote:-) And also to drive her back to our place for the week, as well (from her weekend break from baby duty). We ended up getting her a whole bunch of Mother's Day gifts, which she very much deserves...a bracelet that has two sorta-charms on it with each other girl's names on them (that was from her Granddaughters), and a really beautiful necklace that I may borrow (that was from us) and an iPod (that was from him...long story) and an IOU for some spa time (that was from me).

I am hoping that the two older kids will come and visit sometime soon, because I know there is almost nothing she would like better than to have a girly day of manis and pedis and facials and whatnot with her two daughters (and maybe her three daughter-in-laws:-)). And she will have very much earned the relaxation by the time her stint as live-in-Grandma is over with!!!

In addition to giving her lots of presents, we ate a lot of spaghetti and meatballs. So, all in all, a pretty good Mother's Day! I hope the rest of them are this good:-)

And now, back to waiting on Big Sis to burst!!!

I'm so excited for you and your (growing) family! I periodically come check up on your life. :) I don't do that with too many other bloggers, unless they are local. I'm across the continent, but somehow I really like to see how you're doing over there in Boston.
