Weekly Winner #21

I'm sitting here in the quiet of a Sunday morning after a glorious wedding and rockin' reception. No children accompanied us parents yesterday. It was a nice break; yeah, we closed the bar down, us and the wedding party. You could see us a mile away, the couple with young kids, who just don't get out too much. Whooping it up on the dance floor, wondering what these new songs were, going a bit overboard when Human League, New Order, Justin Timberlake and Flo-Rida came on.

But this morning, it's quiet, too still. The kids aren't here. And it's Mother's Day. Before I get a bit sad, the phone rings. And it's them. My boy, wondering when we were coming to get them. My girl in the background with a "Happy Birthday, Mommy" (close enough!). All is right now.

It's been a pretty busy couple of days, and with the lovely weather we've been having, there hasn't been a lot of picture taking this week.

Except for one very special one...



I'm off to celebrate the day with my mother now.


Have a wonderful Mother's Day.

I'm so glad you got to enjoy some adult time last night. And today you get to be Mommy and daughter again. You been able to enjoy the best of all 3 roles in a 24hr period.

Happy Mother's Day!!

Oh, so pretty!!! I'll get quality mom time next week (though she'll play with her grandson the entire time, I'm sure!).

Happy Mother's Day!

I loved this post. It's so true...you can totally tell who the parents who left the kiddos at home are at weddings because they are generally drunk after 1 drink, tear it up on the dance floor, and get caught, um, mating in the bathroom. Not that I would know anything about this...

Hope you had a great Mother's Day!
