Happy Mother's Day to Me!

Sunday was my first official Mother's Day.

I don't think I've enjoyed a holiday more.

It wasn't because of the very wonderful present my sweet son (with a serious assist from his even sweeter daddy) bought me. He's a very intuitive child and knew that my back is killing me from carrying his not so light cute body in his even less light carseat and he got me a gift card to Burke Williams. That's just a present that keeps on giving!

It wasn't because we did anything extraordinary. In fact, we didn't. We stayed home and had a lazy day. We got up late. We ate left over pizza. We played with Austin. We went to church. Not incredibly different from a normal Sunday, except for a visit with Grandpa Kevin & Great Grandma Crowley and dinner with my parents.

But every moment of it was pure bliss.

I've looked forward to being a mother since I was little. And I'm darn good at it! So to get to celebrate the one thing I feel like I've been made for was just heaven. And to get to be mommy to the absolutely cutest kid this side of the Mississippi AND that side of the Mississippi, for that matter too, just puts the icing on the cake that I eat in heaven!
