Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms, Mommies, and Mamas! It truly is an honor and a gift to be a Mother, and I am so happy to be the lucky mama of those 2 beautiful girls above.

I actually had to work on Mother's Day which was a bummer, especially with it being my first Mother's Day. However, one of my sweet technicians, Jaclyn, started my day out by giving me a really nice card. It was just a sweet thought and really made me feel loved. Then, one of my other sweet technicians, Amber, told me she was buying me lunch and we had Panera (YUM!). I had so many wonderful patients wish me a Happy Mother's Day and it really ended up not being so horrible to be at work.

Then, I came home and my amazing husband had Lexi and Lyla all ready and awake from a nap. They were sitting in their Bumbos and had that picture above sitting in front of them. Oh yeah...and a GORGEOUS diamond bracelet. It was such a nice surprise, totally unnecessary, but come on, who doesn't love jewelry?! Like I said before, it is such an amazing gift to be a mother. I hate that I can't be there at all times for my girls, but I have to believe that one day they will understand that I go to work for them. In the meantime, the big belly laughs that I got tonight from Lexi show me that they love me regardless. And I love them!

Pop quiz: Who's who in that picture?


  1. I'd say Lexi on the left, but who am I to know. I normally have to meet a person dozens of times before I even remember their names or face.

    Glad you had a lovely Mother's Day even if you had to work.

  2. I say that Lyla is on the left in this one (isn't she normally on the right?) I'll be really proud of myself if that is right. :)

    I'm glad you had a great Mother's Day!

  3. I am going to take a stab at it and say Lyla has on the green bib and Lexi has the white bib
