Garrett brought home his mother's day gift yesterday. They made it at school. He has been so excited about it he has been bursting, trying to keep it a secret. He wanted me to open it yesterday because the gift needed some attention. It was wrapped in a white paper bag with "I Love Mom" written all over it. On the front was a cute little paper mom and her apron lifted up and had coupons for me. They were written in poem form and were so cute! They were for things like 2 hugs, taking out the trash, singing me a song, or picking up the living room floor. I loved it! Then, inside the bag was a flower pot with a marigold in it. The pot was personalized and said "I love mom" and "2009". He had colored it orange! I love it! Presents from kids at this age are straight from the heart and they want so hard for you to be happy when you get them. I am going to keep these forever.
I am a mother to 4 awesome kids and am married to the best guy in the world. I am a Registered Nurse. I work on a medical floor but I also take care of cancer patients. I love my job and my family and my life. I really have nothing to complain about!
