So we had an extremely quiet Mother's Day today. This is because Connor decided to celebrate it by not sleeping at all. Since he'd gotten up at four in the morning the day before, that means that as of right now I've gone about forty-two hours without sleep. I think it's forty-two hours, anyway. I'm not wonderful at math at the best of times, and my brain is kind of fuzzy at the corners at the moment.
So we pretty much stayed home today. We did make one quick trip to the grocery store for food after I took a micro-nap and chugged a ridiculous amount of coffee, but the grocery store is less than a mile from our house so I figured I could focus on the road long enough to get there and back without putting us in harm's way. However, church and the breakfast out we'd planned to do didn't happen.
But barring the sleep deprivation, the day was lovely. The kids gave me some very sweet gifts for Mother's Day. Connor brought home a bookmark from school with his picture on it, and Eden wrote me a card that made me tear up. She made it out of lavender colored construction paper and covered it in rainbow colored hearts. On the outside she printed "Happy Mother's Day" in her best handwriting.
On the inside she taped a picture of me tossing Connor up in the air and wrote:
Thank you for everything you do for us. You always take time to take me swimming and take Connor and me to school and P.T. We Love you so much!
Eden and Connor
So that right there made it pretty much the best Mother's Day ever in the history of everything. Who needs sleep?
