The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly...

To Mothers who truly do the best they can
through the good, the bad, and the straight up ugly times...
and still make a sliver of time for sanity....
You are amazing.  
You are enough.

This has been my Mother's Day weekend. 

The Ugly:

Four doc. appointments.
3 antibiotics
1 steroid
and still croupy

All I can tell you about this picture is that I spent 30 minutes cleaning up what appeared to be this item all over the steps, to the bathroom, and a trail to Connor's room.

Temper Tantrum-
I won't let her eat the chapstick.

My Mother's Day Lunch-
We are broke.
(see new shoes below)

Note to Teacher
Me: Why did you throw mud?
C: I have no willpower.
Me: We are writing your teacher a note of apology.
C: I don't care if I get dirty.  Why do people care if I get them dirty?

Our church group changed venues.  Basically, the craft I executed- 
nail polish fumes + two groups + small room= 
TOTAL asthma attack on the way home.

Overpriced shoes, 
for little wide feet

These two pairs are more expensive then all mine combined.

I still have the first ones we bought Connor (at the same shop).
Which reminds me-
I'm old.

Weekend Allergies= No Energy

 The Bad:




We I wrote down the wrong date for Cagney's Party.
Missed it, but we plan to make the next one.

Me- Connor can I open my Mother's Day gift?
C: I don't care. Its in my bag.
[dig crumbled gift from bottom of bag.]
Me- I love it, did you make it?
C: No, my teacher did.
I'm hungry.

Sweet but crumpled.

I mean really flattened.

Temper Tantrum-
I don't want to go.

Laundry ALL day.
ALL day.

Carlee uses food as hair gel.

Still finding pieces of this around the house.

The Good:

Leading the Pledge and Scout Pledge

I snuck out this week and got a 
manicure (happy mother's day to me).
My sweet hairdresser T. gave me the works, and we chatted like two hens the whole time.

No words needed-
Connor a. led the prayer this morning  b. opened the door for me
"Dear God, thank you for moms...."

New shoes work like a charm.

I saved the bracelet!

Sweet notes to mothers.


These two did so great with their part!

Spring Program- Frog and Toad

I will tell you Connor had an additional cute part with his friend Ms. E.  Ms. E. is one smart cookie!!
I sat beside this girl's mother and she said to me "Ms. E. has been so nervous about saying her part all week."
To which I said,
"I didn't know Connor had a part until he told me as I walked into the gym today."
[Carlee I expect you to tell your mother everything.]

I wish I could show the whole show, but I will keep it at the opening....

Kissy Baby Cheekies


Sweet text from GOOD friends

Southern Accents

Thads wat we calla football rite thar!

I found a half of one of these in the fridge.  
That makes for a good day.

Happy Mother's Day
