|Jeremy lost his very first tooth.|
I have to start with the most important news today from our home...JEREMY LOST HIS FIRST TOOTH!!!!!!!!!!!
Since Guy is in Port Harcourt this weekend (Neither one of us realized when he planned his business trip that he would be gone over Mother's day. He promised to make it up to me next weekend!:) ), the kids and I packed up and went to church this morning. Later on, we had lunch with some friends and then, came home and talked to my parents on web cam. It was so nice to be able to see my mom now that she is home from the hospital. I have to say that technology is wonderful.:) The kids danced for my mom to one of their favorite songs for her Mother's day Gift from them. It was so funny when Elizabeth came out with her pretend cookies and her little tea cups to have my parents "taste" her cookies and tea. My mom pretended to look like she was tasting the tea as Lizzy put the spoon by the computer screen....both the kids thought that she could really taste the food. I think I laughed so hard my belly hurt!:)
Here are a few gifts I received from my little ones for Mother's Day this year.:)
|Jeremy made me two cards.:)|
|I love how he also wrote his last name in the card for me!:)|
|Lizzy painted a fan for me at school...very practical for Lagos!:)|
|The center of my table for Mother's day.:)|
|I had to put this in...we left the tooth for the tooth fairy under Jeremy's pillow.:)|
"For Special Meredith,
God has given you many blessings entrusting you with two precious gifts of his love. You are a loving, caring mom. Your children will revere and always love you. Love and prayers full of pride are sent your way. Grandpa and Grandma"
I had to sit there for a few minutes and just stare at the card. I really could not have found this card at a more perfect time, and her message made me remember that my children are two very special gifts I have been given. Being a mom is one of the hardest, most thankless, time consuming jobs anyone could ever take on. So, why do we as moms choose to become moms??? For those toothless grins, those tight hugs, and those precious words that every mother loves to hear...." I love you."
For all of you moms out there, I wish you a very blessed and Happy Mother's day all the way from Lagos, Nigeria!!! No one but another mother could ever know how hard you work! Enjoy your special day!:)
