My sweet baby girl Lauren (Monkey Pie)
So I came home a little drained the other night, I walked into the house and greeted the kids. I then asked them very nicely if they would just give Mommy a little bit of space and peace and quiet. I don't ask for this type of thing very often because usually when I get home I am so eager to see how their day was, hear about what they learned and see what they have for me. I am always welcomed with hugs and kisses and a rush full of excitement from them to just talk.
So they stayed in their rooms while I put my feet up on the recliner (with my pillows and blanket) and decided to just sit there and relax and start my new book. Suddenly I sense Lauren sitting behind me and just staring...I turn to see what she is doing (she never says a word) and she just smiles and says to me "Mommy, look in front of you". I look up and I see this lovely little note from her.
It reads: To the best Mom in the world. Hope you like the tea.

Behind the note is a hot cup of tea that she made for me so that I can truly relax. What a sweetie pie. I almost cried. I am blessed with such sweet children.

So I sat there and sipped on my tea and read my new book with my feet propped up and just relaxed for about 45 minutes. It was perfect and just what I needed after a stressful day.

For me, EVERYDAY is Mother's Day!
