{Mother’s Day} I love my kiddos

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.

Finally, I have to brag a little. Shelby is super artistic and talented. I’m her mom, so of course you’d expect me to say that, but it’s the truth. She made me a pop-up Mother’s Day card all on her own. She figured out how to make the heart pop up and executed her idea … without any help from anyone.  It was awesome and she was so proud of herself. I’m quite proud of her too, she’s a good one!
