Happy Mother's Day!

Hope it's a day full of joy and love. Spend it with your mother. Spend it with someone else's mother. Spend it with your kids or grandkids.

Being a mom is tough. Being a mom is wonderful. The things I think are casual conversation now astound me. I rarely even blink when I hear a crying child in a restaurant let alone snark on the parents.

They make me laugh and cry. They are smart and funny. They are adorable and infuriating. They take my stuff and never put it away. They run to see me when they get off the school bus. They roll their eyes as if I know NOTHING. They ask me a million questions about everything. They are my pride and joy.

It's fitting that the photo has the kids munching on some of Dorie's Granola Grabbers.

What a great picture!

Happy Mothers Day to you as well - and I had to laugh about the part when the kids take everything of ours and never put it back. Sabrina has taken over my bathroom with her stuff..... and several other rooms as well.

And the eye rolling? On a daily basis!
