Mother’s Day 2010

My Mother’s Day is rapidly coming to an end. I think it should be Mother’s Week at the very least. I really like being able to say, “Do what I say…cause it’s Mother’s Day!”

This Mother’s Day started with eggs and toast for breakfast, but honestly this happens every Saturday or Sunday. Ken always makes eggs, toast and fried bologna for everyone at least once on the weekend. I don’t eat the bologna, yuck! I then demanded (ha!) everyone clean their bedrooms before we took off for the day. I was not thrilled to find Karli had drawn with pen on her wallpaper border in her bedroom. I tried to remove it with a magic eraser and it started removing the pattern on the paper. Oh well! Then I was a little more angry to find an half eaten ice cream bar dried to her shelves in her bedroom. What is with this girl, she is such a slob! Chase was my best helper today, always doing what I ask. Blake and Andrew also cleaned their rooms up and took care of all the dishes. I know you are probably thinking we shouldn’t be cleaning on Mother’s Day, but you know, it’s MY day and that is what I wanted! We have been attending endless amounts of baseball games and today was the first day off in awhile so I had to put them to work for a little bit.

The kids presented me with tons of handmade cards and artwork that they made at school. They also had a piece of paper folded up into a cube shape, which upon unfolding I found a picture of an iPad and a note that said it was on it’s way, WOW! I was so shocked, Ken kept telling me that I had to close my own job before I could get one. He ordered it over a week ago, but apparently it won’t be shipped for a few more days. He got me the Wireless/3G one with the 64GB hard drive. I am not sure why he thought I needed the largest hard drive, but that is just how Ken buys electronics..he gets the best! He sure spoils me so. I am so excited to get it later this week. He ordered me the case to go with it too, the one that Apple sells, but I have seen some other really neat ones online. Later tonight I plan on checking those out to see if I want to cancel the cover and get a different one. I was so shocked because he kept asking me what I wanted and I just kept saying…just get me to Cancun next month baby, that’s all I care about. I will be traveling to Columbus with Andrew and Karli for a few days in June for a baseball tournament and we will be home for just one day and then leave for Cancun for a week. Ken isn’t coming to Columbus because Blake and Chase have games and he will already be missing their games the following week. Oh…we are all going to Cancun as a family, to an all inclusive resort with tons of stuff for the kids to do.

Karli’s sad face must be because the iPad isn’t here yet…haha!

Mothers Day 2010

Blake made me this with Legos this morning…

Mothers Day 2010

In the afternoon we stopped to buy some hanging baskets for our moms. My mom’s birthday is Tuesday and we celebrated that today as well since we have baseball pretty much every day this week again. We celebrated with cupcakes and the kids trashed her house for awhile. Nothing like a good visit from the grandkids to give you something to do rest of the day. Just kidding, we cleaned up before we left.

Then we went to eat at where else…BD’s Mongolian Grill and did a little shopping at Dick’s Sporting Goods. Dick’s to my boys is like Target to me. They can always find something they absolutely have to have. Now I am just relaxing up in bed while the kiddos play baseball on the PS3. What a perfect day! Is it wrong that I want to end the day with a little quiet time without kids? LOL!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there, hope you all had a wonderful day!

(If anyone is interested in buying my Kindle, excellent condition, let me know, I will be posting it on Ebay very soon!)

    Never mind, I forgot you can read your kindle on the ipad…my brother is doing that.

      Yes, I will just read my books on the iPad, however I will miss the non-glaring screen of the Kindle. But I just can’t justify having both and having to take both places.

    I agree that we should celebrate for the entire week!! Looks like you were spoiled!! Hope you enjoy your iPad!! The vacation sounds wonderful!! We are trying to plan something similar with my brother for the summer. My parents have a timeshare but we have to foot the airfare which isn’t cheap with our large crew!!

      Tell me about it Stephanie! Our flights are costing more than the all inclusive hotel!
