Mom’s Day & Disappearing Presents
May 20, 2013
…join with me in pretending Mother’s Day wasn’t 8 days ago…
One of my favorite things about marriage is seeing my husband and my brother become friends. They are brother-in-laws, obviously, but they also like each other and are real life friends. And it’s awesome. (Especially since my brother scared off pretty much every boy who ever had interest in dating me, until Taylor came along. He instantly liked Taylor. That’s big time.)
So, out of all of the fabulous events from Mother’s Day weekend, my favorite was the gunfight between Jared and Taylor.
It all started with sweet Beckett and his little $1 squirt bottle, that he frequently squirts himself in the face with.
The bottle was quickly hijacked and used against him, along with a homemade water bottle squirt gun.
This of course left Beckett excluded, toyless, and undefended as the grown men waged a full-fledged water war against each other.
The lesson learned here is that in a lot of ways, there really isn’t a huge difference between ages 2 and 28. Boys will be boys.
Mother’s Day 2013 was a fabulous week/weekend/day, and I’m so glad my own momma got to be in town with us to celebrate. Here are some of my favorite pictures from our time together.
And if you’re wondering why I put the far right picture in since my kid’s eyes are closed and his pants are halfway off…let me show you the collage I made from our own Mother’s Day photo shoot:
Mother’s Day painting,I loved you so much for the 30 seconds I had you. Maybe next time we can spend a little more time together. I hope you had fun at your retirement party and that your new owner gets on high-dose medication to prevent her from accosting fellow shoppers in the future.XOXO
