Mother's Day will always have a special place in my heart because my son (and firstborn) was born on Mother's Day 2009. I remember lamenting (I lamented A LOT when pregnant, I was one cranky preggo lady) in early May that since our son was due 5/28, I'd have to wait a whole year to actually be a mother on Mother's Day. Well, my son had a special surprise for us. My water broke at 7 am and at 3pm, he had arrived and I got to be a bonafide Mommy :)
My Mother's Day gifts: my babies (the BEST gift) and some lovely preschool artwork that I will proudly hang in my cube:
Top: Artwork and kiddos playing with water balloons & sidewalk chalk (why they're both looking down)
Bottom: "Flowers" from V and sibling love
We ate a dim sum breakfast, Korean lunch, and a masterfully prepared dinner by my Mother (this lady floors me everyday with how amazing she is. We are SO LUCKY to have her living with us!):
Top: Lo Mai Gai, Surf & Turf dinner cooked with love by my mother (rib eye, crab stuffed clam, lobster tail)
Middle: Siu Mai, Lobster Congee
Bottom: A gigantic Bibimbap wrap and Bibimbap bowl
I am so blessed to be a mother. These 2 little beings are our everything <3
My favorite kiddo moments this year:
Upon talking about cowboys and cowgirls, V declares that I am neither. I am "Cowmommy"
When he wants a hug, he says "I want to love you Mommy" and opens his arms wide
V asked for the remote and I asked him, "What do you say when you want something?" Baby E jumps up and said, "Please!" (sounded more like PEAS), but we all cracked up. We had no idea that she had learned that from watching us interact with V.
Related to the above, E also learned "cheese" at the same time. Whenever I want to take a picture of her, I tell her to go over there and say "cheese". She gets quite a kick out of it and is turning into quite a ham with the camera.
Whenever we watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (which is ALL the time), Mickey asks, "Would you like to come inside my clubhouse?" To which E always responds with a emphatic "NO." That's right, E, avoid those strangers!!
I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day!
