Bella climbed into bed with me bright and early and said excitedly, "Happy Mother's Day! What did you get me?"
It was an amusing (and apropos) way to begin a lovely day with my family. Jay made eggs benedict, among other things, for me and our two mothers, and I got to see my friend Angela received into the church during mass this morning. A good day, I'd say!
One of the best parts? The poem Lindsey composed for me. Apparently, love for the rhyme runs in the family! Here it is:
Your hair of golden brown
Your feet as big as a clown
Oops, I didn't mean to make you frown
I'll turn that frown upside down
You're my only mom around
And the smartest girl in town
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there. Isn't it nice to be appreciated? (Foot comment notwithstanding, of course...)
