I am so grateful for these two kiddos. My life is so much richer because of them. They are the two halves of my heart. I laugh more because of them. My life has more adventure because of them. I have so much more joy because of them. They fill me up in a way I never thought possible.
I can't say I'm a big Mother's Day fan. I think mothers should be loved and honored all year long. I'm not sure I (or other mothers) really need a day. But, I also loved all the love and attention my two little monkeys showered on me.
Shelby made me the coolest present ever:
It's a newspaper page with Shelby's own artwork. How perfect is that for me, her newspaper working mama? It's really the best school-made Mother's Day present of all time.
We celebrated Mother's Day with all the Kalil moms with a brunch on Saturday since I had to catch a flight Sunday around noon. My favorite part of brunch? Watching Shelby and Cooper play with Andrew. I grew up seeing my cousins all the time. They were my favorite playmates. I love that my kids live just a 10 minute drive from their cousin. And Andrew is such a fun, smiley phase ... so it's a joy to be around him.
