I haven't been sleeping well because Amelia hasn't been sleeping well. Partly because of having a babysitter last night, but also as a kind of kudos to Mother's Day, we put Amelia in the basement last night in the packnplay and I got to sleep straight through the night until 6:30 a.m. This is how a truly miraculous mother's day begins.
Then I asked Mark if he'd heard our daughter in the night and he had and that meant she was still alive, so I rolled back over and went to sleep until after 8!!!!
Mark made me and the kids breakfast.
The kids made me a beautiful card. And gave me a gift card for the garden centre. So we all piled into the car and went for a family outting.
All afternoon, I just gardened like a mad woman and then, for supper, my culinary genius of a husband made the best ribs ever!
Without a doubt, my favourite Mother's Day yet.
p.s. If you want to know what gardening I worked on all afternoon, check out www.outsideathome.blogspot.com this coming Friday for our My Garden to Yours feature.
