I had such a fabulous Mother’s Day weekend. I dare say it was one of the best Mother’s Day Weekends I have had in a long long while. It was jam packed but all with good stuff. As in REALLY good stuff.
It started with this little girl. She came home with treats for me on Thursday.
Background story on this treat. For the past few weeks, before these photos were taken, Gelli has been waking up every morning and asking me to call her Teacher Boom. She would grab my phone, tell me “Boom. Call. Now.” After she would share her desire to talk to her very first teacher ever, I would actually contemplate Face Timing her teacher.
I thought about it for a couple of days and then decided that maybe she needed to go back to “summer school,” since she was always asking for her teacher. I know that Gelli craves routine (even if she goes kicking and screaming for a nap EVERY day) and that the perfect routine for her includes her school day at The Little Apprentice.
So here we are, in the third session of summer classes, and we are already looking forward to seeing her classmates from last year as we register for the coming school year. I can’t wait for Gelli to start her second year at TLA.
Friday included some time with my girls. We all came together to honor another friend of ours who is going through a very special time in her life. We love to come together to eat, drink, be merry, and LAUGH. Seriously. LAUGH.
I also believe that we are put on this earth to love and to share that love…Thanks Tata and JV for sharing your love with us! We all wish you beautiful happy fruitful years together.
After a full Thursday of writing, and a full Friday of celebrating, I was honored to be part of a full Saturday of sharing.
Thank you #ScottsPH for allowing me to share my story and my journey of motherhood with you. Parenting is not easy. There are many moments when I doubt the job that I’m doing. But then there are those moments when everything comes together, the kids show me just how incredible they are, and I realize that being their mother is #Momazing.
And lastly, my recap of Mother’s Day weekend would not be complete without giving you a glimpse into a very special #staycation that we enjoyed as a family. I didn’t even realize all of the very special surprises that my friend Jane Santiago of the Discovery group cooked up with my husband and my kids in cahoots.
Will be writing about some of these parts to my weekend individually, but for now, I couldn’t wait to share them with you quickly in this post.
