My Mother's Day

On Saturday night I told the boys that the best Mother's Day present they could give me would be for them all to sleep in. Jalen then asked 'isn't my love enough!?' to which I replied 'nah - a sleep in is better!'. I actually was only joking, but a miracle happened and all the boys slept in till 8am including Kobe! That is unheard of!

It was a lovely morning with presents and brunch. The boys made me some lovely cards and Harri's had a picture of me in a Hawthorn coloured top with the number 36 written up the top of the card. I said 'I'm not 36 Harri, I'm 35!' and he goes 'but it's Mother's Day Mum, so you are 36 now!'. Oh boy - imagine if I aged a year on Mother's Day and my birthday! I would be 45!!!

The boys sang at church with the other kids, for the Mum's (twice throughout the day!) which was really funny. All I could hear was Jay's loud voice and Harri coming in REALLY loud at the parts that he knew the best - usually at the chorus.

After church Mum came in for tea which was nice. We took the opportunity to get some photos in the leaves out the front of our house, before we rake them up (for the first time this year - there will be many more times until that stupid tree is rid of all it's leaves!).

The boys had lots of fun playing in the leaves - especially Kobe. Check out his cheeky face!

When I realised there were enough leaves to cover the boys, I thought that it was about time I raked a few of them up.

The boys weren't happy to come inside until Grandma had a leaf fight with them. They weren't too keen about getting leaves shoved down their undies though!

It was a lovely day spent with the people I love the most.
