From my little man & Five Things Friday

11 May

Little man brought this home from preschool yesterday in honor of Mother’s Day.  I guess my new healthy eating routine is rubbing off on him. :) The other side is a poem about his fingerprints, along with a purple glittery impression of his little paws. I’d type it out for you, but I think it would make me cry again, so I’ll leave it up to your imagination. My mom still has something similar to this from when I was in preschool. I will treasure it and will keep it forever. This is one for the baby book, for sure.

To go with this beautiful paper treasure, he presented me also with a door hanger that says “Do Not Disturb” which he decorated with stickers so that I could use it “when you need your quiet time, Mommy”. AWESOME gift. I am in love. And feel so very blessed.

My Five Things for Friday:

  1. We’re going to our first outdoor concert of the year tonight and I cannot wait!
  2. Tomorrow our new carpet gets installed and I’m thinking it might feel like we’re living in a new house since I just finished painting the dining room yesterday. Pretty cool!
  3. The weather is gorgeous and I’m excited for the beginning of summer. Who isn’t?!
  4. I am so over baby girl’s canine teeth. Come in already, suckas! Poor baby is so fussy, I can’t imagine what she’s going through. Hopefully another week and they’ll have cut through her sore gums.
  5. Sunday is Mother’s Day {as I’m sure you’re all aware} and I’m excited to be participating in Postpartum Progress’ 4th Annual Mother’s Day Rally for Moms’ Mental Health. Just finished my letter last night and I’m really proud of it. Look for it here on Sunday, and also on Postpartum Progress at 5am. A huge thank you goes out the Katherine Stone for creating the rally and being the driving force behind advocating for women with mental illnesses related to pregnancy and childbirth.

Happy weekend everyone!

    Crap…my comment was gobbled up.
    Just wanted to say that I’m so excited for your post to go up on Mother’s Day. You are such ann inspiration to so many including me.
    pS. If you could get my son to eat broccoli, I will love you forever.

      Thanks, hun! One way we got him to eat broccoli was by giving him “sauce” to dip it in: ranch or hummus usually worked. Now he’ll eat it raw, with no dip, which is simply amazing to my friends. :)

    That is so cute. I am loving all of the pictures of what kids are saying about their moms. Does it bother you just a tid bit that his teacher spelled eating wrong? ;)

    Have fun with the new carpet, I bet it will feel like a brand new house. Enjoy it. Have a wonderful weekend!!

      Thanks, Karah! Yes, I would be lying if I said it didn’t bother me that the teacher’s assistant spelled “eating” with two t’s. But this is why I am choosing to send him to a different preschool next year. :) I love the one he’s in now, but it’s more of a pre-preschool program, in my opinion. His sister is actually going to do a mom’s morning out there in the fall.

    Even just reading about what your little guy made and I’m crying! So, so precious. Happy Mother’s Day.

      Awww, thanks Kate! You know I’ll be putting that door hanger to good use! :) Happy Mother’s Day!
