Taking Pleasure in the Simple Pleasures of Life!!
Every year for Mother's Day all my men get up early to make me breakfast. I am usually asleep while all the action takes place only to awaken to a fresh poured cup of coffee and my favorite breakfast sitting at the kitchen table waiting for me.
This year; however, I was a wake before all the action began. Some little birdy told me that I needed to be apart of it all this time around.
And so I was.
While I was not "allowed" to lift a finger to help cook or set the table, I was given permission to pull out my camera and snap a few shots.
Our Aussie was stuck on the other side of the kitchen...wishing he could come in...cause he just KNOWS the kids are gonna drop something that he can "help" clean up!
My youngest was inspired a few weeks ago by The Pioneer Woman. We all curl up on the couch and watch her TV series every Sunday morning.
He saw her making some fried eggs inside toast and decided that he HAD to make me those...and he doesn't even like eggs OR toast :)
I love that kid!
My breakfast was Magnificent! There was chit-chat and laughter all around the table.
I didn't even have to clean up the mess when they were done!
For a brief period in time, I actually felt like royalty.
I was quickly smacked back into reality when my boys started wrestling each other over who was going to give me my Mother's Day gift.
Ahhh...the joys of Motherhood!
