I know I already posted today and I really don’t mean to “bother” those of you who get e-mails every time I post by over doing it with the blogging but this put a huge smile on my face and so I just had to share it.
This morning as I’m getting ready for work …
Ace: Mummy, I have a surprise for you. It’s a Mothers Day present. I can’t show you until it’s Mothers Day OK? You tell me when it’s Mothers Day and I’ll give it to you. OK?
Me: OK baby
Ace: It’s a card!!!
Me: Ooh, OK. Nice.
Ace: And it’s shaped like a heart. I made it. And I drawed on it and decorated it. It’s beautiful and it’s for you.
Me: You mean you drew on it.
Ace: Yes, I drew on it. But it’s a surprise remember? So you can’t see it. When is Mothers Day again?
Me: On Sunday. I’m sure it will be a wonderful surprise.
Ace: Can we go to the park tomorrow and I can play with my water gun and wear my clothes that Nanas gave me and bring my ball and my sun glasses and my bike? That’s all I need at the park.
Me: Yes we can go to the park. But please try and behave in school today.
(Me: *grinning from ear to ear* I can’t wait to see my surprise card that my son drawed on)
In completely unrelated news … Jay has been saying “help me” for a while now. It’s been very helpful to us in trying to parent him. We spent many hours teaching him to say those 2 words.
Well … Mr Man has added to it. We have no idea where he got it from. CC and I certainly didn’t teach him this. We doubt his teachers did either. But it’s quickly become his favourite thing to say. We heard it last night a few times and again this morning in the car.
“help me NOW”
… ahm … We let you get away with a lot little dude, but yelling at us to help you NOW, isn’t gonna work out so well for you. lol Good try though. 🙂
This is shaping up to be a very happy Mothers Day weekend for me. I hope it is for all you amazing Moms out there too. xoxo
