Mothers Day

Well today is Mothers Day in NZ. A day when we show thanks and appreciation to our mothers.

Corbin allowed me to sleep in until 7.30 am this morning before he called out for help with the loo. When I went to him to take his ABR machine off he told me I was the best mum in the universe. I love how children are so biased!!!

I was fortunate enough to get 50+ kisses and heaps of cuddles from Corbin and Miss Livee as they snuggled in bed with me this morning. They were both delighted when they gave me my gifts which consisted of homemade cards and a fridge magnet each that Miss Livee had made and they had painted themselves. They were so cute.

Olivia had gone shopping with her Dad yesterday to buy me a little something that she just knew I wanted - a New Rubber Scraper - how wonderful and thoughtful my beautiful daughter is! Unfortunately she couldnt keep it secret and she just had to tell me yesterday what they had got, and what it cost. Bless her.

My delightful teenage son informed me he didnt have time to make me a "Car wash" voucher (what he gave me last year) so he offered me breakfast in bed instead. This proved to be a bit of a problem because I asked for tomato on toast and Master Jay told me he didnt know how to make tomato on toast!!! Then when I explained the simplicity of it all to him he couldnt find the tomatoes in the fridge - they were hiding from him - much like everything that a teenage boy looks for hides from sight. The disaster was averted when his sister found them for him. Whew!!!!

I love mothers day purely for the hilarity of it.
I have 3 of the most gorgeous and comical children in the world and I love them to bits...........
