Yesterday I had to skip church and stay home with Stuart who wasn't feeling well, so Andy took William and Catherine to church. While they were gone I attempted to clean house, unpack, and decorate for Easter. I only got as far as the kitchen and den. I was feeling a little frazzled, overwhelmed, and tired by the time they all got home.
I was sitting at the table when William ran over to tell me about Sunday School and noticed the bunny decorations and candles I'd put on the table. He stopped and said "Oh I forgot it's almost Easter. I love Easter!" Then he quickly looked around, hugged me and said, "Mama, you always make everything look so pretty."
Awwwwww. My heart melted. And I suddenly felt energized, inspired and appreciated to the point I was ready to jump up and tackle the rest of the house.
William will be giving lessons if you want to sign your husbands up. And for you Moms of daughters....he'll be an eligible bachelor in about 15 years!
