I had a great Mother's Day this year and the boys were so sweet and well behaved it was perfect really. The morning started with Owen wishing me a Happy Mother's Day and telling me that I really love him that's why I'm his Mother :) sooo sweet and it took everything I had to fight back the tears. Then he finally caved and told me what my gift was (he didn't spill the secret all week until last minute)
Gavin had asked Owen what he wanted to get me for Mother's day and he said a stamp. Gavin thought it was kind of a strange gift for him to want to buy but he went along with the suggestion. As soon as I opened it I understood why Owen thought it would be great. Weeks ago we went to apply for Owen's SIN card and one of the office clerks had a hand stamp that Owen thought was great, he kept mentioning we didn't own one and I guess he never forgot!
Anyway the gift is perfect and is so my little boy. I'm looking forward to stamping some little love notes for his school lunches in the fall - I think he'll love little surprises like that.
Below is my Mother's Day card. gavin asked the boys a few questions and these are Owen's answers.
Noah's answers (some he actually answered on his own) I'm not sure who thought pudding was my favourite food though...
The boys took me out for breakfast and the rest of the day we spent together enjoying the great weather.
We think of Owen's birth parents often but especially on holidays such as these. We hope somehow his birth Mother knows just how much he is loved and is comforted by that.
