Setting the bar, high

So, my first Mother’s Day was pretty spectacular. When Chris asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day, I told him the only thing I really wanted was a good night's sleep. I got that and much more, with him surprising and pampering me all weekend long. A few highlights of what I “got,” just for being mama to my little guy:

• A bouquet of tulips delivered with a card from my son that I will cherish forever. “Mommy, You’re the best mommy in the whole wide world and I love you so much! Happy Mother’s Day! Love, Kostyn Orrie.” Only 11 months old and already spot-on with his grammar and spelling. It’s in the genes.

• A morning (and into the afternoon...) out alone on Saturday, treating myself to a haircut, pedicure, walk downtown, coffee and cinnamon bun, and lots of sitting on the waterfront engrossed in a book. I missed my boys, but the quiet time away was
heavenly.

• A night out (babysitter and everything!) for a fundraiser/cocktail party on Saturday night for which my husband dressed up in a coat and tie and didn’t complain once.

• Blueberry pancakes and bacon for breakfast this morning. Mmm.

• A gourmet dinner lovingly prepared by my husband.

• A cool new shirt and sandals I would never have splurged on for myself, wrapped up in the prettiest paper I’d ever seen.

• A brand-new digital camera.

• An uninterrupted night’s sleep!! Of course, Kostyn cooperated with Daddy and only woke up once for 15 minutes, but still. I didn’t have to leave my warm, soft, gorgeous bed for 7 straight hours.

• Too many hugs and kisses from Kostyn to count. It’s his latest favorite thing ... as soon as I lean toward his face, he leans into mine. So, so sweet.

What a weekend. I’d better start planning Father’s Day now.....

That husband and son of yours are definite keepers...

You know Chris and Lance should really spend more time together. Maybe something would rub off...
