It was such a blessing to spend so much time with my family but it was a very surreal weekend this Mother’s Day Weekend. It was as if I got to step out of my sluggish body and head pain ridden ornery self and got to be this happy, fun LulaRoe legging wearing, master garage saling woman this weekend. It was magical.
Friday night: I love that Gideon is still young enough for back rubs and snuggles. The best way to spend quality mother/son time for me…the hugs are healing and he loves his back rubbed…it just happens that he falls asleep very quickly when I do rub his back, so I just held him. He will not be small enough much longer to do this.
Saturday we all hung out for the morning and then went in to town to garage sale and man did we hit a ton of sales (see Garage Sale Addiction Post for more on that). Gideon ended up with 2 of the best things; a 4 piece suit which he loved and had to put on right away when we got home and a game with many interesting additions to the box. As soon as he put on his suit he had me taking video of him doing dance moves…very funny! And then my mom asked if I got any pictures of him in his new suit…good thinking mom. No I hadn’t, but I was still up for a few pictures and he was so excited to have his pictures taken that I definitely took the opportunity to do so!
Sunday morning @ 7:30 I was woken up very quietly to ask help buttoning up Gideon’s pants, then shirt, then vest of his 4 piece suit. After he was all dressed he climbed into bed and played on his ipad, making me a new season 😉
I came out to the living room around 10:00 and Gideon was right there asking to play one of his new games from a garage sale. As far as the game goes, all the pieces were there but 1, so that is pretty good for a used kids game…but it was all the extra stuff that was in the box that was so strange:
- a little gun
- instructions for a roku
- a used pencil top erasure
- AA battery
- AAA battery
- paper clip
- 2 fake fingernails
- paddle and ball
- wrapper for a cough drop
- 2 rubber bands
- a piece of wood
- metal tool of some sort
After playing the game for a little while I asked Gideon if he wanted me to cut his hair because he had been asking for a short hair cut, so I got the clippers out, got him into play clothes, and cut his hair. He was definitely due! And I was so glad I felt good enough to cut it!
He said he was going to wear to wear his suit today and he did, but he had to have a bow tie, so after his hair cut I took him to my photo props and found him a bow tie. Then I sent him to the shower and he got his suit and bow tie back on. It was Mother’s Day after all. He made me want to dress up a bit too 😉 Then we had to take pictures with his new hair cut and with the bow tie…it was so wonderful to feel well enough to be able to do so. Josiah didn’t want a hair cut or his picture taken! Growing up!
Josiah shows me his love is ways that can’t often be photographed and he is getting old enough that he isn’t always up for pictures for fun. He prays for me every night, he gives hugs and is always concerned about me. I have been blessed with two very living children. What more could a mother ask for 😘💕
It was a wonderful weekend. We went garage saling, shopping and out to dinner. But even better I got to be a mom, a photographer, a hair cutter, a mom, a photographer, a garage saler and a mom and it was delightful!
And then we were all tuckered out from a fun long weekend of Migraine free mom!
Happy Mother’s Day to me and to my mom!
