Last night the kids told me they were going to let me sleep in and make me breakfast in bed for Mother’s Day.
They should have said “sleep in.”
Sleeping in on Mother’s Day does not look like this:
Not in this house, anyway.
It looks like this:
IT’S HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!! IT’S HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
MOMMY! WAKE UP!
IT’S HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
DID YOU HAVE FUN SLEEPING IN?
MOMMY! I MADE YOU A CAWD!

So maybe they still need some practice on the sleeping in part.
But they definitely nailed the breakfast in bed.
Time to eat.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
