"Make You Feel My Love" - Adele

 . . . .

Mother's Day came early for me.

Last night I got to hang out with some of the 8-11 year old girls from church [as I do every two weeks].

I knew what we'd be doing.

Making a gift for their Mom's for Mother's Day.

So, I knew ahead of time, I'd be the recipient of some awesome & soothing [homemade] bath scrub. [thank you, pinterest]

But what I didn't know . . . . . .


Yes, I'm posting it [the inside].

1.  because it brought me to instant tears.
2.  I love 11.  I LOVE eleven.
3.  There will probably be days that she [conveniently] won't remember she wrote this.
4.  I need evidence.
5.  Because being a "mom" means everything to me.  everything.

I'm crying again.

Can you guess my most favorite line?

The best gift I ever received on mother's day was finding out I was finally going to be a mom. That's right on mother's day I got my first positive test and I bawled my eyes out and then beamed the rest of the day. With my second kid I felt awful on mother's day only to find out a few days later I was pregnant with him. :) Stinkers.

My mom still has this funny little bookmark I made her in elementary school with my picture on it. I think it's her favorite.

This kid has an obsession w/mustaches.

She wants a mustache themed bday party for her next birthday.

Sigh - my kids are 8 and 11 - these are the sweetest years ever. I am so dreading the teens, better soak up as much mom adoration as I can!
