Busy, busy, busy...

Wow, it's not that I don't have tons to say, I just can't find the time to get on. Hunter leaves soon, hopefully I will be able to update more then. He got his haircut last week, he wanted me to get my haircut before he left. I am sporting a new do for summer. Now he says the dog is the next one for the family cut and then we will be like the 3 musketeers. Why does the tin foil in the hair always make me feel like I am trying to contact life off of earth?

Mother's Day Surprises...

Ah, I am not big in holidays where I feel that you should be doing some or all of the stuff for more than just one day in the year, but I must say I really enjoyed today.

First off yesterday we finished Hunter's stepmother's presents, we painted flower pots with her favorite color green and chalkboard paint. He chose tomato seeds to send with them.
One of the pots he drew on says "stop smoking now", I asked him if she smokes, he says no he just wants it to say that. They are his presents to her so I don't have much to say, I just hope she understands that it is him and doesn't read into it.
He did get to talk to her today, but not his dad, not sure where he is today but we waited up late for his call.

On to my day, I insisted that we went to bed at a decent hour the night before, I told H that I did not want to be angry and upset or have a fight that could be
controlled by us just getting a goods night rest. When I woke up I watched some tv, then H woke up and came in and climbed into bed with me and asked me if he could make breakfast in bed, he said all he could make is cereal and I could tell he wanted to do more so I told him how about I get up and help him make the waffles and sausage and then he could serve it to me in bed. He was excited by this idea. I let him do all the measuring and such so really all I was trying to do was to supervise him.
Once the stove was off I ran off to my bedroom. He came in and acted like a waiter and took my order of two waffles with just a little bit of butter, syrup and four sausage links with a glass of milk. I told him to put the waffles on the plate he had made me while he was with his dad over spring break. Oh my little boy was so happy to serve me breakfast in bed, I am glad it worked out for him. Just a little tough to make it a surprise when it is just the two of us but I think we succeeded very well considering.
After my breakfast he told me he had one more surprise for me and he brought in this picture. He checked out a book at school that was teaching him how to draw cats, he drew me one. I love it, it is a very good picture.
He let me just watch tv all day, I even fell back to sleep. We got up and went to Aunt Tami and Uncle Andrew's house to play with the family. It was just a wonderful day, I couldn't have asked for a better day to spend with my son and my family. Worked out wonderfully.

I guess the name of the blue bird was Bluey not Louis, my mistake. I was informed that I was wrong.

Funny thought...

We went to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point today, it was a complete win. Pictures will follow once I get them all dumped on the computer, just too lazy to get that done today.

We had lunch down there and H decided to save just enough room for icecream so he only ate half his food. We went shopping found a Webkin doll that is a otter or eel type creature. His name is Furry Vengence (yes after the movie) and he has a new blue bird doll that makes real tweets (yikes, why did I let him get that one), his name is Louis (pronounced loo ee).

We finally made it over to get icecream, Mary was trying to sale the boy on visiting Sub Zero Creamery (can't remember the name) and pulled up a video on her phone showing them making the icecream from scratch. She had made a comment of "you thought you loved icecream you will love this icecream" (at least close to that). He turned to look at me with a look on his face of "she is so crazy, what is she talking about" and said back to her "I already love icecream, you can't make me love it twice".

What a fun day, I am really glad we decided to go, raining or not it was a blast!
