I Like Pillows and Cake. Not Spiders.

May 10, 2012


This card that Julia made me at school....well I think this is pretty much the best thing I could ever receive for Mother's Day. (Andrew! I'll still be stoked to get some tea, or a tea towel or a cookbook.)

My kiddo knows her ma. Cake is where it's at. I LOVE CAKE. Also, I totally have a Pinterest board solely devoted to pillows. 

I love her, I love her, I love her.

And, I love her, I love her, I love her.

FURTHERMORE, 

I love her.

(P.S. It is supposed to be me in the little picture that she drew. I am wearing a soccer shirt, she says. I think this is quite an accurate picture of me actually. I often wear soccer jerseys while imagining rainbows and stars and hearts and peace signs in the air in front of me...)

  1. Melissa, this post made me teary. I love how well your sweet little girl knows you! The pillows and cake cracked me up. My little sweetheart brought home a Mother's Day card from school yesterday. It said, "I like to play with Mommy." *Sniff*

    Does it get any better than that? Well, maybe it does... today I get to go to her other school (yes, she goes to two preschools – one is for speech therapy) for a Mother's Day brunch! Thankfully, my own Mommy is coming over to watch the Master so I don't have to spend my brunch chasing my nut around the classroom!

    My, that was long... Melissa, you're an AMAZING mama. You deserve a Mother's Day Week!!!

    1. Oh Michelle, thank you so much. I do the best I can, but I don't think I'm amazing (except at continually making my kiddo mad :). But all we can do is the best we can. Many times I don't feel like I'm doing my best. (too tired, too achy, too whatever.) I just hope she wants to hang out with me when she's older!

    1. Isn't it sweet? Totally keeping it 4-EVA, as we used to say in Hawaii. (any Hawaiian kid's yearbook says 'friends 4-eva!' in it)
