All of that was after I had just tucked Trey back in, who had to get up for one more potty break.
I'm just waiting for Tess to cry out next. She's in a strip-yourself-completely-naked-in-the-middle-of-the-night stage, and I've had to redress her several nights in the past week. Bring it on, I say. I'm so close to pulling out the duct tape that it's not even funny.
Funny how Mother's Day makes me thankful for the daddy in this house. He had to work today, which made me thankful for how hard he works so I can do what I do at home. He is one amazing partner in parenting, and in life.
Blessings from today:
Church this morning, where I got to witness Trey serve his sweet friend Ian. This just may have been the best Mother's Day present ever.
A visit from Mom and Dave (complete with lots of awesome garage sale finds for Tess!).
Brunch at The Trails with Mom, Dave and the Walshes, where three boys were especially cute and full of manners.
Hanging out with the boys on the driveway, lighting leaves and ants on fire with a magnifying glass and the sun. :)
Opening a sweet card addressed to "Ommee" - Tess's version of Mommy.
Answering the door bell to find that some sneaky boys had placed a beautiful planter on my doorstep.
Tyler getting home from work and freeing me up for the evening (I left by myself for a little shopping at Meijer and Gordman's - woah. Best purchase of the night: a new baseball bat for Trey.).
A movie / Spageddies take-out date with Tyler when I got home.
Honoring my mom today, who first loved God with her whole heart, then loved me enough to point me to Him.
