Mother’s Day was great. Caden and Jacob wore the cutest shirts made by Comfy and Cozy. (They only cost $6, and can be embroidered with anything! There will be “My Dad Rules!” ones for Father’s Day!) We started off the day by going to church. I spent the whole time in the nursery because Jacob is starting to have major spearation anxiety. But it’s actually okay, because there were a few other moms in there that I have fun talking to. After church Caden ate donuts with his friends and we played on the playground until Daddy was ready to go.
We went out to Long Beach to my sister’s house for the day. We were supposed to go to Mother’s Beach, but it was a little breezy, thus, a little too chilly for fun beach time. So we walked down second street to a really cool candy shop. It was just like Willy Wonka… every candy imaginable. Caden got a free sucker (it pays to be cute) and Geric and I split some peanut M&M’s and Reese’s Pieces. Jacob ate some applesuace and then decided the sun was too bright.
When we got back to Bridget’s house, Jon BBQed Naples Rib Company. MMmmmmmmm! It was delicious. I highly recommend them. On the way home I fell asleep. I was thinking that Mother’s Day was great, but you know what would make it awesome? A day off! I know that in order to get a day off, I would have to vacate the premises, otherwise my kids cling to me, no matter how much Geric tries to pry them off. So Geric told me to pick a day and leave. I wanted to see if anyone else out there wants to join me on my day off, because how much fun is a day off when all your friends have to work??? So what do you guys think? Anyone else want a day off? Let me know and we can fill in all the details… when and where.
