Let's just pretend for the sake of pretending that this post was submitted on or about Mother's Day.
That is when I intended to post it.
But a little something called exams got in my way.
I had a wonderful Mother's Day.
Cole painted this lovely portrait of me.
You would know it was me anywhere....right?
I am sure he painted my hips that large due to the fact the blue dress obviously had a very large crinoline underneath.
And I rarely, if ever, wear red lipstick so I am not sure where that came from.
It has a slight "vampirish" look to it.
Maybe my Twilight obsession has gone too far.
I love it though.
And if that gift wasn't enough, my children always say the sweetest things to me.
The kind of things that would make any mother weep.
While rubbing my
toned fluffy upper arms after lunch Cole announced that he loved my "fatness".
Moments later Claire asked why I had an "M" on my forehead?
I reached up thinking I had a piece of food or a sticker on my face.
I felt nothing.
I ran to a mirror.
I saw nothing unusual.
I turned around and asked where she saw the "M" she spoke of?
"Between your eyebrows where your wrinkles are...it looks like an M.
I thought you did it for Mother's Day."
Of course I did.
I spent hours pushing the furrows between my brows to look like an "M".
I am into holidays like that.
I even sported it yesterday for "M"emorial Day.
Happy very belated Mother's Day!
