If you know anything about me, especially if you are the one who feigns having to "go to the bathroom" at my house but instead dig through my drawers and cabinets, you know I have an obsession with makeup. Like a three drawers full to the brim obsession times two bathrooms. My girls have no chance to escape this disease as I see their little stashes of sparkly fare hidden about the house.
Now, since I am an enabler and will be using the above link to save money on my search for the perfect summer lipstick, and because I really hate shopping with other people shoving their ways into my personal space, I thought I would share this money saving link to you. Because I care. Because I'm a total sharer. One would one say an over-sharer. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy a bountiful beauty booty from the money savings link above.
Awkward segue coming up next....
Mother's Day was actually a nice and peaceful day. Never mind the fact that I was on day 10 of "operation getting old as dirt," my emotions were at an all time high. **Not preggers, if you were still wondering.***
I was surprised with flowers planted in our tree planter and beautiful side walk art. I think Moira was kinda confused as to what holiday we were actually celebrating as "Happy Birthday!" was thrown into the greetings.
I've heard some moms complaining about the homemade gifts from their children as well as throwing their "love"gifts away as soon as the event is over. To these parents, guess what. Your child knows what you do and they aren't fooled. They are hurt. I've talked to a lot of my girls classmates and they've told me they don't want to try on the projects because their mom is "just going to throw it away anyway." How sad. Your reaction and how your cherish these gifts are showing them how to give and receive. Both good or bad. I choose to be proud of their gifts. Macaroni necklaces and all.
My favorite part of the "my mom" series was from this sentence: My Mom can do many things! I think she's best at "doing the spilts! She even know Times!"
I do have to say, I'm pretty damn good at doing the splits or "spilts" and my mother will laugh about the times comment. I still don't know them very well. I wonder where my oldest gets her math skills from....
Speaking of my mom, we also shared a nice lunch together.
I have to say, everything I've learned about parenting, love and compassion has come from my mother. She's always been my greatest champion and thinks I'm neat. I couldn't ask for a better mother/father as she is the one who had to fulfill both jobs on her own. It has always been us against the world. and yes, we've kicked ass and reported them to the authorities many times throughout our life together.
I only hope I make her proud.
I hope I am a role model to my girls and they feel the same way about me. That I am a loving and compassionate mother. That I am their greatest champion and that they too know they are so freaking neat.
