Celebrating Stimey

Mother's Day will last for almost a week around these parts.

Quinn's class held its annual tea to honor mothers on Tuesday. Jack's class celebrated on Thursday. Both Jack and Sam each brought home a mother's day gift or card from school today. And on Sunday, I get to celebrate the actual day with no less than seven mothers. (And seven boys under the age of 7, but that's a whole other story.)

I've said it before, but I love Mother's Day. Maybe the card companies made the holiday up (Fun fact: they didn't), but when your card is handmade by your child, there is nothing better.

And what does Christmas have on watching your child hold gifts he made for you as he introduces his class before they sing songs about how much they love you?


  1. Just as Mother's Day should be.

  2. Awww, that's so sweet! Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Awwww.

    My Mother's Day consists of celebrating The Goon Squad's birthday.

    Every year.

  4. I so agree...I am way more excited about Mothers Day than I was for my birthday just last week. And I got my very first real handmade Mothers Day card from my 3 y.o. daughter on Friday. I will treasure it forever.

  5. I still remember the begonia sales at school every year ...
    my Mom must have had a lot of begonias!

  6. awwww. This morning Boo woke me at 3am. He was excited that it was mothers day.

    After I had my shower and washed my hair he snuggled into me:

    Boo: Hair smells..

    Me: What does my hair smell like baby?

    Boo: Blah!!

    Yeah, thanks.

    Happy Mothers Day my lovely!
