Mother's Day

I had a great Mother’s Day spent with beautiful weather, family and friends. For all you people who told me that yes, I should go buy new sheets even though they are so expensive,  you will be happy to know that my sweet husband surprised me with sheets for Mother’s Day- yay! And the G-Man gave me a gift card to get new lamps for our bedroom.

We had a lovely morning at church- went to our monthly mental health support meeting and then heard an incredible testimony by a mom who had brain cancer in the service. We then had lunch with one of my besties and her family, and Grayson actually was interested in trying some of my pasta salad. I cannot tell you how thankful I am that he doesn’t have a food aversion but geez, I wish he would hurry up and learn how to chew and swallow. He “choked” a few times and eventually puked all over me- good times!

My friend and I then went grocery shopping for another friend whose baby is in the PICU on life support. If you can, please say some prayers for Baby C and for my friend and her family.

Wrapping up the day watching the last episode of Desperate Housewives ever (sniff sniff). I know, it’s an awful show, but I’ve watched it since the beginning and am sad to see it go.

Tonight, I am so thankful for my mom, who is an amazing mom and Grammie. I’m thankful for all my mommy friends who support and inspire me every day. And I am so thankful I get to be this little guy’s mommy.

Happy Mother’s Day!

    I hope your day was fabulous! New sheets!!!! I need new sheets so badly. That's an awesome present! ūüôā But the puke, not so much. Glad he doesn't have food aversion, but the gagging, choking, and puking is no fun. I hope that he will start to make faster progress with that, and everything, as they increase meds and get him more help. The first time my boy was able to swallow solid food, (at 2 years old, following a major surgery) I was sobbing with joy. I have about 400 pictures of him chowing down on food. I still get a bit misty eyed when he's eating his lunch, and swallowing without effort. What a gift! I am so grateful he can swallow now.
