Dearest M.E.G. Patrons
I never understood the whole hype around Mother’s Day until I became one. Now I totally get it!
I absolutely love the planning and whispering that goes into the big “mom spoil” … which of course is put
together by the mastermind of my adoring hubby.
Its not the size of the gift , its actually all about the presenting moment for me. Priceless!
I love how proudly my little Leo ,, with his baby brother, Noah and dad in tow, will come and bless me with home picked flowers and a home made card and breakkie (last year it was a plate of marie biscuits)… and the big sloppy kisses and “I love you mom” … that instant is what fills my love cup and makes it over flow…
I love being a MOM!
Now, I know that many of your other halves may be past this cute phase of child rearing.
You may not quite get away with home grown flowers, kisses and marie biscuits… and so for those of you
