On Mother's Day, I had visions of sleeping in until 10, taking long, warm baths, and drinking champagne leisurely by the pool. Alas, Mr. Howard had to work again. So, instead I spent the day doing exactly what Mother's Day celebrates: being a Mommy. I chased small children around, took swords (also known as "back scratchers") away from superheros, solved
fights, wiped tears, made lunches, did 3 loads of laundry, giggled, and solved some more fights. I wasn't sure if I was going to get a picture with my cuties, so I took my own!
Well, my morning selfies were unnecessary because my darling husband captured the perfect photo of me and my cuties. Seriously frame worthy!
After family photos, my sister-in-law made us delicious fried chicken! Oh my goodness! Mmmm. And then we opened presents!
It's already found a home on our wall in the kitchen.
