Yes, even when they barge through my bathroom door when I am....ahem....otherwise indisposed, with no regard for my state of dress (or undress) and regardless of what I am doing - eager for hugs and kisses and to share some latest tidbit.
But this year, I received THE best Mother's Day gift of all.
I over-heard Dahlia, talking to herself.
I heard her say something, totally unsolicited and unprovoked.
" I love my sister!!.......even when she bugs me."
And then I heard the angels sing!
The fam took me out to our favorite spot. And this was the first time I just brought my purse. No diaper bag, no toy bags, no video, no nothing.
We just ate and talked and when needed.....played paddy cake.
I think we're entering into an new era.
Here's a little trip down the lane of Mother's Day past.
(I'm misssing a few and have been desperately trying to find them in this labyrnth called my computer.)
