Was Saturday. I turned 34. Wow...next year I will be 35!!! I remember when I thought "30 is OLD!" ...now looking back...WHAT was I THINKING!!!??? I still feel just as young as ever...and with kiddos like mine...I will stay young forever!...providing that the old adage is true..."Laughter is the heart's best medicine"...or whatever it is.
My munchkins made me feel truly loved on Saturday. SO proud to be their Mama!!!
It started with Aubrie waking me with a gentle.."Good morning Mom. Happy Birthday"
I was NOT awake...but I guess she thought I needed to be. =) She then proceeded to give me a gift bag...and inside it was a bottle of perfume and a card. The perfume was not my normal...but it was picked out by her...so it was PERFECT. It was vanilla fields...something that she bought with her OWN money. LOVE that girl! It smells really pretty, too! She did a good job.
Then, Chance made me a glass of diet coke for my birthday "cup of coffee" (I don't drink coffee so the Diet coke is my 'coffee') And Aubrie made me a bowl of strawberries and cream oatmeal. Skye and Dayne didn't realize it was my birthday until Tamon woke up and came into the kitchen and squeezed me till I couldn't breathe...singing Happy Birthday to me. THEN...they both climbed in my lap and did the same. Skye was upset that she didn't have a present to give to me...but I told her that "Skye Lovin's" are ALL I need for my gift. She gave me tons...all day long!!! LOVE that girl!
I had a scrapbook layout on my desk...and Tamon said that I am really talented. I said...not NEARLY as talented as some ladies on the internet! You all think my work is gorgeous...but if You ONLY saw the stuff on the internet..."
He replied with..."Well, you might not be as talented as them at scrapbooking...but I know one thing that NO ONE is better at than you." I asked, "What is that son."
He said..."Being a Mommy. You are the best. You have a LOT of talent in that area...and I can't think of a single person who could possibly be better than you. If God gives everyone a gift that they truly excel in...then your gift is being a Mom." I almost cried. LOVE that boy.
I ate my oatmeal and drank my diet coke and went to the shower. While I was in the shower...my munchkins made me a video on my laptop. It is Aubrie, Chance, Dayne, Skye, Tamon, and my niece Maddie. ***Disclaimer...Skye is holding an UNLOADED airsoft gun...they were playing cops and robbers...YES...I already asked how the gun came into the picture!!!
