Mum #fmy52weeksofmemories

I went into Mother's Day this year not expecting to much. I was pleasantly surprised.

I was excited about receiving the gifts the girls made at school and kindy. They are the most precious.

Summer had a shoe box under her bed, secretly stashed away, with her offerings. It was all a bit too cute.

I loved the way Izzy woke up Summer in the morning saying it was Mother's Day and to get her presents. They were both so excited.

Keyring from the Mother's Day stall at school. A gorgeous card and candle from Kindy.
Isabel's handmade paper plant pot with a bulb in it. We've planted it in the garden, I think it's a Gladi bulb.
 

Breakfast in bed was nice, but seriously Brett needs to improve his porridge making, it wasn't very nice. I usually cook mine. I didn't say anything. I was still in bed! Who was I to complain. I appreciated the $100 hair voucher Brett bought. It shit all over the $20 Target voucher he bought last year. Still haven't made the appointment, probably next week.

We visited my Mum. I was there yesterday and it was lovely to see she was using her new 'Mum' mug, and insisted on me making her cuppa in it. I felt like I was seven again.

Izzys flowers from school.
 
Izzy and I watching experiencing Eurovision for the first time.

This is one I found on Izzys camera.

The video below too! The annoying, brain piercing singing kids instinctively know you want to hear, when you're at the end of your tether. It's funny now.

  1. What a lovely and relaxing Mothers Day! I have to laugh about the breakfast, I always get something a bit stranger than I'd make myself too! This year I was made a smoothie served in a bowl with fruit.

  2. That's lovely!! And the best bit is the shared moment watching Eurovision. I think those moments are magic - when you share the same interest, instead of doing something on their level. That's the glue in the relationship for teen times ahead...

    1. She came home with one like this last year too. The flowers lasted a long time too. It was just that green florist foam in a jar.

  7. Sounds like you had a sweet morning. I got lots of hand made craft too from the boys. Treasures they are. I think a hair voucher is a great idea because it's going to make you go and pamper yourself isn't it??

  8. Haha, I thought your porridge was muesli. Points for effort. It sounds like a lovely Mother's Day. We used to be so excited like you girls to give Mum her gifts from school. Enjoy that hair appointment.
