Mother's Day breakfast in bed

Pajamas All Day? Check.

Scott: What do you want for Mother’s Day?

Me: My usual. Sleep-in. Eat sushi. Oh, and I’ve been feeling sentimental lately.

Well, Scott and the kids went above and beyond and not just because I stayed in bed until 3 p.m..

Mother's Day breakfast in bed
I actually ate all three meals in bed, which means I got back into bed for my sushi dinner. I’m no slouch when it comes to livin’ it up lazy.

My kids also gave me lovely, heartfelt gifts.

Handmade light
My son made me this amazing light. It’s for “staying up late to read.” This kids knows me too well.
Handmade Mother's Day necklace
My daughter made a heart necklace with her initial on it. She picked out the jewels herself. The silly photos were bonuses.
Hand decorated pots
They also painted these adorable pots. I’m not sure if the closer one says “Boo,” “Doooooode,” or “Poo,” but they all would fit me so well that I didn’t clarify.

For the one hour I was out of bed, I planted my kids each a garden of celery, tomatoes and cucumbers. In my pjs, of course.

The gardens are identical, which at first I thought would keep the whining to a minimum but if only one thrives, I'm pretty sure they'll be a fight to the (plant) death. Oh well.

Happy Mother’s Day. I hope your day went as well, or at least as lazy, as mine.

  1. Your gifts are adorable, but at first I thought the light was made of sour gummy worms. Delicious, but not long-lasting.
