You rock, girlfriend!

Matteson has taken to saying this to me all the time, so I thought it would be the appropriate title for a quick little mother’s day post.  Every time she says it, I crack up laughing because it just seems too old for her and yet somehow it also suits her.  The dichotomy of a four year old.  Still your baby and needs those cuddles and attention, at the same time expanding her vocabulary and testing things out to see what my reaction is.  We had our neighbors over for dinner and we really tried to get the girls to take a nap today, but it just wasn’t happening.  When, oh when, will they learn how wonderful it is to nap?  SO, I had to resort to a movie to get everyone a little quiet time.  I am starting to get a little tired of hearing Disney movies, although I love me some Shark Tales…..my brother, my player, the shark slayer!  Matty likes to go around saying, “you’re not a nobody; you’re a WINNER!”  Anyways, it is a great movie but it was time for a change..so I served up some Goonies today!!!  You can’t forget the 1980’s and some Goonies!!  One of our favorites and although  I was a little afraid that it would be too scary for the girls, they loved it!  (Of course, they were cuddled up with daddy to help with the scary parts!)  It was great to put away the cartoons for a change and watch a great movie.  So a nice relaxing day was had here in SoCal. 

This post would not be complete without thanking my Mom for everything she has done for me in the past and does for us to this day.  She is the epitome of selflessness, giving and caring and I hope that I am half the Mom that she is.  She will always be my hero and my heart.  I love and miss you Mom!

For all the great Moms out there that I know and love..here is a bouquet for you all:

I used the directions found here:

The paper is Parisian Breeze and Kraft Cardstock.  A bunch of embellishments were used such as corduroy brads, 5/16” brads, filigree brads and button bouquet buttons in white.  ]

Happy Mother’s Day!  Ciao for now….Deidre
