Mother's Day

Happy (belated) Mother's Day to all the mommies out there.

Yesterday I woke up to some beautiful flowers that Andrew got for me. Ok, maybe he had a little help from daddy.

I love Calla Lillies and am so excited that we will be able to plant these and have them year after year

I'm not sure what these are and if the petals are supposed to open up or stay in little tubes like this, but they're pretty cool.

At 10:30 we got on the road to head up to my parents house in Myrtle Beach.  My grandparents (my dad's parents) were there and they had yet to meet the munchkin yet so I was excited to get to introduce them. Unfortunately I don't think they will remember him. They had to be reminded who I was a couple times - it made me sad. My grandpap is 92 and I think my grandma is 87 (she won't tell anyone how old she is).  They have both lived very long lives, but they just aren't "there" really anymore.  My grandma did get a kick out of Andrew and some of his antics and she would laugh at him while he was playing, but I don't think they realize who he is in relation to them  :(

We played around outside with the girls picking flowers and bringing them to my mom. Andrew was crawling in the grass, but trying to get up on his hands and feet because he apparently didn't like getting his knees wet  (well then you better learn to walk, munchkin).

Then we took a couple pictures - not easy to get everyone looking at the same camera and smiling, but we got a few good ones.

Yeah, my kid sticks out like a sore thumb with that blond hair

After a little more playtime it was time to get on the road and head back to Charleston.

Another Mother's Day come and gone. Some days it still seems weird to me that I fit in that category now.  It doesn't always seem real - I'm a mom.  All I know is it better be real because I'm not giving up that title (or my munchkin) for anything.
