I Got The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

I Got The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

The Perfect Mother's Day GiftMy husband Dave is my blog’s most dedicated reader, so of course he was a little worried when he read my post about the six things I really DIDN’T want to get for Mother’s Day.

I imagine there was an audible sigh of relief when the present he planned didn’t make the list.

Naturally I was pretty intrigued yesterday morning when Dave said to our 21-month-old Luke, “Let’s show Mommy what we made for her for Mother’s Day,” and instead of whipping out a craft he turned on the television.

He pulled up this video, and I melted.

For me, this was the perfect Mother’s Day gift. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Thank you, Dave, for being so creative and thoughtful. And thank you, Luke, for saying you think your mama is pretty!

How did you spend your Mother’s Day?

  1. Awesome!

    Yesterday was a lot of just-right moments…

    4000 yard pool set (3000 swim), snuggles and singing with Susanna, salad and Swedish fish post swim, finding a grill plate on sale (the hub made Tandori chicken on the fire pit last night …oh, the smells!), and ordering a few new clothes.

    That was after doing cloth diapers, cleaning, packing, etc. which I enjoyed, too.

  2. LOVE! I slept in, had breakfast made for me, got some quiet alone time, laid in the sun, and had a nice family dinner that I didn’t have to cook! It was a good day! Happy belated Mother’s Day to you.

  3. That’s so sweet! I had a bit of a pity party for myself after our attempt to go out to lunch was a bust due to an extremely bratty preschooler, but… after a unexpectedly enjoyable graduation party for my cousin in the afternoon (wine and cupcakes? Yes please.) we had a really nice, low-key family evening hanging out in the backyard and playing. So, it turned out pretty well after all!

  4. Aww!! My 22-month-old watched this with me and would say, “Mama” and “Love you, Mama” to your husband’s prompts. So sweet. And I love the way your son says, “Uh huh”. It’s SO cute.
    My Mother’s Day was one of the best. I think I’ll be writing about it this week.

  5. Oh My GOODNESS! That was sooo sweet and something you will watch 100 times over the years! That was a great gift from your husband. 🙂

  6. Too darn cute, Katie. Your hubs even had a soundtrack and effects. That’s a keeper right there!

    We had a pretty good Mother’s Day—lunch with the whole fam at a restaurant that thankfully had us in a private room. Enough space for the kids to go crazy post-dinner without disturbing other people lol.

  7. I’m not a Mom, so I visited my Mom in assisted care during Mother’s Day. She still recognizes me when I show up, so that’s a good thing.
