My wonderful husband and my three sweet boys planned a special surprise for me this morning. First, my husband let me sleep in, while he got up with the kids. (Thanks honey!) When they were ready for me, my husband led me into the kitchen and had me sit at the end of the table where I could not see into the kitchen. Then he cued my oldest to come out from hiding in the kitchen by announcing "one green and speckled frog". My oldest brought me this gorgeous bouquet picked fresh from the yard. Next he cued our middle child by announcing "two green and speckled frogs" and I was presented with a beautiful homemade card signed by each child and my husband. I don't know how my husband got our 22 month old to wait behind the counter for so long, but he did. He was announced "three green and speckled frogs" and excitedly brought me a box of chocolates from our favorite candy store, Fannie Mae. The boys had such fun planning the big surprise.
We had breakfast, sampled some candy, went to church and enjoyed a fun Mother's Day. Then my husband took the boys out to play for the afternoon and I had the house to myself. It was wonderful. I clipped coupons, wrote out the grocery list, did some laundry and cleaning and enjoyed the peace and quiet. How did you spend Mother's Day? I would love to hear.
