I love my kids!

My Mother's Day was nice this year. It started off when I was in the kitchen getting myself some coffee and Caitlin came in bearing a rose and my favorite chocolate. She's so thoughtful and just the best daughter that I could imagine having. Probably because her and I share the same positive outlook on life and she's incredibly funny.

Next came Cody with a hug, card and a chocolate donut on a plate. He loves to bring me things or take things from me to go put away. I would hope he would always be this helpful, but from my experience, kids lose those wonderful traits as they become teenagers. I don't expect this child to be any different, but for now, I love how helpful he is.

Hayden was next with a hug and a Mother's Day wish. The card that Cody brought in was also from Hayden so that was covered earlier. Hayden is a bit of an entertainer and always has been, even though he never really meant it to be that way. He tells stories about school and friends in such way that it will make you laugh.

Later, we all headed out to a soccer game of our friend's youngest son. It was the Championship game in a local tournament and it was worth being there. The game was very exciting and it was fun being there to support such a cute kid. We always have a good time with this family and today was no exception.

I didn't talk to Dylan until after we left the soccer fields, when I called to see if he wanted to join us for dinner out. He immediately wished me "Happy Mother's Day" but declined the invitation since he had to work later. He keeps to himself for the most part but if you catch him on a good day, he's very talkative. He's signing up to go into the Air Force this summer so I spend much of my time worrying about where his life is taking him and hoping that this will make him happy. I've spent a lot of my online time looking up as much information on basic training and what to expect as a parent.

Except for the fact that I had to make a grocery store run, Mother's Day was pretty good.

And today.... well today is my birthday.

Sounds like an awesome day! And I do not appreciate not getting to be the first person to comment "happy birthday." Just kidding!
