A Mother's Day timeline

On Saturday when putting the kids to bed, I sat three Bushes on the couch and gave a little speech:

"Tomorrow is the one day a year that I get sleep in. No child shall wake me up. You walk to your DADDY'S side of the bed, and LET ME SLEEP."

And you know what? Those sweet babies tried their darndest to let me sleep. But you know I still could hear their "whispers" to their daddy, but bless them, they at least tried. 

But they were so anxious for their mommy to wake up, because they had some gifts to give, and with that my Mother's Day began...

7:30 a.m. 

In all my glory, I was bestowed with MANY gifts. 

They must have drawn me 25 pictures each, and candy, and cards. Pure sweetness!

9:30 a.m.

A packed church service with the family.

11:30 a.m.

Lunch at mommy's choice, and mommy always chooses where we eat based on GUACAMOLE.

3:00 p.m.

Paul gave me the gift that keeps on giving.....


And so began a 4 hour journey of me time.

I love my babies more than life itself.

But alone time ranks RIGHT BEHIND THAT.

And with that my Mother's Day came to an end.

I was sad that I couldn't be with my family, but I just choose to think on my blessings. I'm SO grateful to be a mommy. I know there are many women who always dreamt of being a mom, but for whatever reasons it didn't work out for them.

It's a hard job, but I love it.

I want to end with documenting what the kids said about me in the things they made for me at school.

SUPERMOM! By Pierce Bush

My mom loves me the best when I am nice to her.

My mom looks prettiest when she goes to church.

I like being with my mom most when we are at Indiana.

If I could give my mom something just from me it would be a new car. (I will remember this)

My favorite thing about my mom is that she is my mom. (It's my favorite too)

My favorite thing to do with my mom is to play basketball with my mom. (sweetness) I also like to do I spy with you.

One day I was riding my bike. Then I almost fell but my mom saved me. (SWEETNESS)

The funniest thing about my mom is that she tells jokes, she dances crazy, and she dresses up.
