My parents went out of town and came home to an early Mother's Day surprise this weekend. My sister and I made a chore list and spent a day cleaning their house-including the toilets.
We wanted to take the housework off Mimi's hands to give her time to relax. She returned home to a tidy house and climbed into bed with fresh, clean sheets. Her fridge was stocked with organic produce and her kitchen table was decorated with tulips.
Mimi was touched and said it was the best gift ever.
Motherhood has transformed me and gifted me happiness like no other. There are days when my heart feels like it's going to burst.
This Mother's Day, I don't want breakfast in bed, I just want Henry because he makes me so happy. He is the greatest gift and I am so grateful.
I am proud to introduce my newest sponsor Alta Vista Flowers. The beautiful flower shop is located on Bank Street and is happily serving the Ottawa and surrounding area. Like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter. A lucky commenter from this post will be receiving a $50 Alta Vista Flowers gift certificate!!! Their gorgeous bouquets make a great gift for mamas and grandmas for Mother's Day. A winner will be announced on my next blog post.
Happy early mama's day to everyone who has ever loved a mother, snuggled a baby and wished for happiness.
