Mom's Birthday

I had a lovely 31st birthday. We didn't do anything really special, but everything we did was a little bit special. And that was great! I felt very loved and appreciated all day long. Richard works from home on Wednesday's, so he was around to help out here and there with the kids. He let me run some errands with just Isaiah hanging on me instead of all three kids. And I took a long nap during "naptime" knowing that I could sleep as long as I wanted instead of as long as any child wanted me to. We had a yummy dinner and a delicious ice cream cake.

The kids gave me some very thoughtful gifts (with the help of a few hints). A salad spinner from Naomi and a Split Ring Opener (jewelry making tool) from the boys.

Thanks, everybody, for making my day special.

A salad spinner is a great self-inflicted present! :)
