Happy Birthday, er, Happy Mother's Day!

While I bask in the glow of Mother's Day, and my children attempt to make up for yesterday's less than stellar behavior at Scout-O-Rama, I wanted to share this little funny tidbit.

After consuming my waffle breakfast (YUM!), and enjoying the hugs, apologies, and handmade gifts, I opened a card from Barley made at daycare. The cover had a pretty picture of willow buds, and inside, written carefully in colored ink, it says,

"Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to SERE,
Happy Birthday to you!"


On the left side of the card, I recognize Barley's scrawled "Happy Mother's DAY" message. It seems there was a stock of supposedly blank cards that they chose from at daycare.

I asked Barley if he had noticed there was already writing on the card when he picked it, and he said, "Yeah, but I just used the blank side!". Too funny--and such a kid perspective.

Here it is for your enjoyment:

To top off this celebration of ME, thanks to Julie Kang's blog, I was able to nominate myself for "Mother of the Year". This is a cute video, and you can personalize it for your own loved ones by clicking the button on the right.
