Mother's Day Addendum
Just a little post script here....
My husband came home from work (he's in landscaping so that means Saturdays too, if it's a sunny day then it's a work day!) to gather up our brood to take them "out", a.k.a. - Mother's Day shopping.
Funny man, doesn't he know that taking ALL 3 of our children for a couple of hours, when I have had them ALL day, is present enough? To just sit with a cup of tea in utter silence and not yell up at the ceiling, to not make anyone a snack for the 12th time today or in the three year old's case, applaud his potty routine?
Maybe I can even take a bath BY MYSELF without the youngest one, who always finds out and brings his bath toys to join me. Oh, the possibilities are endless of what I can do for a few hours BY MYSELF! (even sit here and type this uninterrupted! Amazing! :)
But don't worry, I won't "spoil" his day with the children. If a lovely bouquet of roses or a nice shiny bauble comes with it, who am I to complain and ruin his fun? ;)
I really enjoy decorating. I love reading books about decorating, watching tv shows about decorating, talking about...well you get the point! I am no expert but I love to rearrange things, shop for fabrics, sew, paint, you name it. If it's in the spirit of decorating I'm there!..Aside from all that decorating...I am a mother to 3 kids, a daughter 10 & 2 boys, 8 & 3. My husband works in construction & landscaping...lucky me, you are thinking right? well, yes and no..he is quite handy...just doesn't have the time to check things off my long "Honey-Do" list, but he's a wonderful guy and gives me free reign in the house. Florals, plaids, roosters and all! :)
