I love Mother's Day. Especially since it is pretty close to my birthday. And most of the time I need a little pick me up after the depression of my birthday. I'm still not over being called middle aged. ha!
Chloe made the most awesome Mother's Day present at school. It was a jar of sugar scrub. And then she gave me this coupon book for a day at the spa...courtesy of Chloe and Macie. So Sunday morning I wake up, and they have turned their room into a spa. They gave me a foot rub, a back rub, a glass of water, and some strawberries and cream cheese dip. They also made me some pictures and cards. Then I had stuffed crepes, a la Don, and then we went to church. We just went to the first hour and then headed down to St. David to spend the afternoon with Don's parents and Curtis. It was a perfect day. Actually a perfect weekend. Friday, I went with Don up to Show Low for the day to go check out a hotel he is selling. Macie and Oscar came, but Chloe had to go to school. We had a great day trip. It was fun to experience some chilly weather. Macie met a little friend, the hotel owner's daughter, and she was excited to take a small tour of the hotel, especially the indoor pool. We also got to visit every bathroom at each location we stopped, which is always my favorite part of traveling with children. We ate at "Persnicketys," a cute local cafe, and then came back home. I actually really like car trips now. Don and I can just sit and talk. Oscar did amazingly well with both trips. He didn't cry at all. He is pretty much a perfect baby,
Saturday Don took me out to dinner to Pita Jungle for Mother's Day and then took me shopping for clothes. Although I didn't end up getting anything because news flash, everything in the stores is hideous. I honestly can't believe just how ugly everything is. I lived through the 90's and I have no intention of dressing like that ever again. All the clothes available do nothing to flatter real women. They accentuate the negative and hide the positive. Baggy and frumpy yet revealing in all the wrong places. It seems that if I want anything cute, I must be willing to fork out an arm and a leg, because the clothes that are massed produced are plain crap. Even Target has let me down! Can't they make just ONE knee length skirt? I am waiting for fashion to come back around to another decade besides the 80's or 90's. Just bag that whole era, there is nothing worth repeating. I can't wait for knee length clothes to be back in mainstream style so there are actually clothes I can wear in the stores, instead of having to look online. In conclusion, 2015 style...super ugly. The End.
Okay back to things that actually matter.
This is the letter Chloe wrote me:
"Dear Mom. Happy Mothers day! I hope you like the gift I made you! You are the best mom! I love you so much. I know that you want your feet to be soft. I made you sugar sugar scub. Sugar scub make your skin soft. This sugar scub smells like pepermint. I made it! It is pretty easy to make sugar scub. To make you add 1 cup of sugar and put two drops of food coloring and mix. I hope you like it! Love, Chloe"
The sugar "scub" was pretty great. Kudos to chloe's teacher for helping them make it because I am pretty sure it was not just food coloring and sugar.
"Have you ever been to a restraunt that is not crowed, has a good price, and has tasty food? I think McDonalds is a fantastic restraunt. First is has a good price. Specifically my dad bought 2 Egg Mic Mufens and 1 hashbrown and it cose $5.00. Next Mc Donalds is not crowded. In fact when I went there there were only a few peple. Lastly the food is tasty. For example when I am about to bite in to my hambuger my mouth starts to water. In conclusion Mc Donald's food is tasty, is not crowed, and has a great price."
Macie really wants a pet. But she doesn't want one that poops. If she sees a new animal on tv, she will ask me "Do they poop?" And I will say, "Yes...all animals poop." And she replies, "what am I going to do?! I am never going to find one!" Meaning...she is never going to find a pet, because they all poop.
Macie also told me in the car the other day what happened to dinosaurs. She said Jesus took them off the earth so that people could go camping in the jungle. It's probably a good a guess as any....
Macie touch my thigh the other day and said, "what's so fluffy?"
In Oscar news...
He is 10 months old and as mentioned previously, the best baby in the world. He's a busy bee and into pulling everything off the shelves, but he is the most lovable and cuddly little guy.
The other Sunday, he crawled under the bench and when the lady in front of us picked him up, he laid his head on her shoulder and cuddled. She was a complete stranger to all of us. He loves to cuddle and be cuddled. He especially loves when his sisters play with him, they take very good care of him.
