Mother’s Day Scrapbook Card

016

Mother’s Day weekend kicked off on Friday night. My husband took me & my mother-in-law out for dinner. We have a fabulous young high school girl who occasionally baby sits for our daughter. After a lovely adult dinner, we came home to a happy toddler. Something was peculiar about our house when we got home. It was clean. The dirty dishes that I left in the sink were clean, the toys were put away and my daughter was content and reading books with the sitter on the couch. Holy crap! My 15 year old baby sitter is a better mother than I am. It was the best our house had looked in ages. My shame aside, it was nice to have a tidy house.

Saturday morning, mommy & Mai baked some muffins. Just as I was getting ready to spoon the muffin batter in the tins, my littlest baker poured salt on top of the whole mixture. Baking fail! Oh well, but look how much fun she is having.

This morning I was awoken to the beautiful sounds of my daughter’s singing. “Good morning, good morning. It’s time to say good morning.”  Good morning, my sweet girl. I am anxiously awaiting my sister-in-law’s arrival. She will be coming to our home to make a mother’s day brunch for my mother-in-law and I. My mom-in-law or Nanna as she is affectionately referred to, has been a godsend. She has been there since day one, helping us with Mai. She does our child care, takes care of all of us when we are sick and is just an all around great Nanna and mother. We made a special Mother’s Day card for Nanna, with a beautiful little flower inside. We hope she likes it.
