pictureThank God for female preschool teachers (and elementary ed teachers).

Mother’s Day: I don’t know about you, but it’s the main reason I send my kids to school.

In my family the husband/dad falls very short when it comes to being sentimental. Now, don’t get me wrong. He was in to all that stuff when he was courting me. He is also lacking in “helping” the kids to show their affection to mom. It has taken me a long time to “get over it” because I like gifts and more so, I like to be shown that I am appreciated.  And I admit that it has been hard for me to get over the lack of cards and gifts from my kids when it comes to Mother’s Day, my birthday and the like because the hubby knows that I expect it.

Today I thank Miss Sarah. Today when I retrieved Jacob from preschool he had a gift box for me. “Open this! Open this!” (It’s cool that the little ones can’t wait because I can’t wait either!) Jacob made a beautiful dragonfly necklace out of sparkling beads. I asked if I could wear it right then. I wanted to show it off while running errands! You should see it when the sun hits it! Ooh!
