Happy Mother's Day!

Flowers from Kailani

Happy Mother's Day to all you mommies out there! And let us not forget those that may face this day with bitter sweetness. Those that have moms who have passed; those who have lost children; and those that are trying desperately to have one. My heart goes out to you.

Awhile back there was a interview circulating around Facebook and MySpace to interview their kids with questions about mommy or daddy. I thought I would share Kailani's answer with you. The answers are pretty funny! If you get the chance to interview your kids leave a comment here and link me to your post! I would love to read it!

Here we go:

Mother's Day Continued.....

Last night I wanted to post a bit more about Mother's Day but I came home to a "crashed" computer! I was mortified. I spent HOURS trying to fix it. While the problem isn't completed resolved I am back online and that is what matters!

I had a really nice day yesterday. I was able to sleep in (till 7:00 a.m.) Unfortunately if I sleep in till 7:00 I don't get that quiet time to drink my much needed coffee before the rest of the house wakes up. The moment my feet hit the floor Momo woke up as well. *Sigh*

I had already received my Mother's Day card and present from Kailani on Friday after school. I could tell that she made an effort to color the card very carefully. The present she made was a white tile decorated with her fingerprints. The teachers took her fingerprints and turned them into animals, grass, flowers, clouds, etc. It is really cute, however, Kailani was a little irked that one of her animals was made into a cat instead of a dog. She said that she told her teacher exactly what she wanted but her teacher "must've made a mistake." I know it upset her because she knows that I prefer dogs over cats as I am allergic to cats. Poor thing. I tried to reassure her the best that I could.

Middle cat is supposed to be a dog.
Kailani wanted me to make sure everyone knew that!

On that note....

*Warning*Warning*Warning*: Vent ahead....

Personally I would've preffered that the kids do the drawings and write "Happy Mother's Day" in their own writing. So what if something might've been misspelled or a dog not look like a dog, you know? I want to see my kid's creation and not that of a teacher's! Am I the only one that feels this way? Okay. I'm done. Thanks for allowing me to vent.

Kailani also gave me some flowers and a JUMBO bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups that went directly into the freezer (the BEST way to eat them!) After my dad treated us to lunch the girls and I hung out at the mall. Was it what I was dying to do on Mother's Day? Can't say that it was but that's alright.

My favorite part of the day was when the three of us climbed into a photo booth and took our picture. I can't say that I have too many pictures of myself since I am usually the behind the camera! This picture was worth the wait. :)

Mother's Day 2009

Hope you had a wonderful day!

P.S. Sorry about the wonky spacing. What gives?!?


  1. Hi Sharon, I am so sorry! i looked back on my emails and never received your mailing address. Please send it and I'll pop a couple of cards in the mail for you! email it to:

    Let your friend she can contact me via email. I don't have a store but can sell to her directly.

    Again, I am sorry! Kim

  2. Love this interview! Going to have to ask my 3.5 year old these questions :-) Thanks and hope you have a Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Ahhh that is so sweet. Happy Mother's Day girly!

  4. This is such a cute idea, I tried asking ER a few just to see what she did...she kept giggling and rubbing her nose on my leg, her version of Eskimo kisses!

    PS: I am so there at Panda Express, we always had the close by in CA and NM and now the only one I know of is over an hour and a half away in a direction we never go. So sad...that orange chicken is the perfect blend of sweet with a little kick. It makes me laugh though, when people think it's spicy! So not!@

  5. Oh those are the SWEETEST answers! How special to think that you are really good at hugging! You ought to print this out and frame it! :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
