I'll admit that yesterday was tough. All my favorite blogs and all my Facebook friends were posting their Mother's Day photos and the sweet homemade gifts their children made them.  I don't have a Mother's Day photo.  And I didn't get anything for Mother's Day.

I don't want you to think that I am a materialistic person who has to have "stuff."  Actually, I much prefer giving gifts to receiving them. But I really really wanted a homemade gift from Noodlebug.  Ever since I became a mother almost three years ago, I have been looking forward to the time when Noodle could draw pictures and make crafty things.  I thought that maybe if I specifically said that I would like a homemade gift from Noodle that I would at least get a drawing. No such luck.

It is important for me to remember, though, that Noodlebug is my Mother's Day gift. Without him, I wouldn't be a mother. And that is all that should matter.

(Noodlebug's third birthday party is this Saturday. We're doing a cowboy theme and I am deep into party preparations. Posting will be light this week as I prepare but I'll be back with party photos)

Oh...I am sorry to hear that your Mother's Day wasn't a very happy one. As for the homemade gifts from your son...you will be bombarded by them by the time he is in school or even earlier. There will be a time you won't know what to do with all the drawings and little crafts and written poems, I am sure of it.
I hope your home is a happy one again soon.
