Hi everyone, hope you had a lovely weekend, and if you celebrated Mother’s Day, I hope you were super spoilt!
For me, I told the kids I didn’t want presents – I just wanted them to wash my car :)
They did a fantastic job. My car is sparkling! They even cleaned my wheels!
(It helped that they use my Enjo car cloths, which I believe, did most of the hard work haha)
Our weeks have been so busy and rushed, that I just wanted a normal, quiet day at home – which has become so rare these days.
So my Mother’s Day Sunday consisted of a glorious 9:30am sleep in (omg I was so spoilt!), pancake breakfast, regular Sunday chores, a bit of gardening, taking one kid to his work, doing bit of shopping, hanging out with my kids, letting them play video games, bit of reading, going to the Asian grocery store and cooking for a dinner party, where we invited both of our extended families over for dinner.
When my 3 kids were in Primary School, I received soooo many cute crafty gifts and cards. The teachers did such a lovely job, implementing all kinds of creative ideas for kids to spoil the mums.
Now with my two big kids in high school, I get less crafty gifts (which is a good thing!) but I do get a bit sentimental and miss all those silly “Interview Questions” or “Acrostic Poems”… thankfully I still have a kid in Year 4!
Talking about silly acrostic poems… I can’t tell whether my 9yo kid really thinks this of me, or he was forced to make some stuff up to fit into the poem?
I guess he could have simply used the word “awesome”?
