Simple Sunday – A Double Special Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing, strong, brilliant mothers out there.

It is not only Mother’s Day here at Casa de Wrong Feet but it is also Carter’s birthday (you can read about his exciting arrival if you wish – a post I wrote quite awhile ago).

My baby boy turned seven today.  We had a very low key celebration, for both him and I.  A simple day that started with a morning dog walk from which we came home to find Husband had cooked us all breakfast.  Carter opened some gifts (the 100 pack of Pokémon cards and the four pack of Minecraft books were the favorites).

We ran errands, had lunch, ran more errands, I lesson planned and the boys watched a Myth Busters.  Dinner was Carter’s choice (mac and cheese) followed by a small carrot cake (also Carter’s choice).

He asked if he could have his birthday party in a couple weeks when my mom comes to visit – he wanted his Grandma there to celebrate with us.  It will be the first, of what I hope will be many gatherings in our new house.  (We get the keys on Wednesday!  (I am so excited by this that every time I say it, I can’t help but squeak a little.))

It was a good day, a double good day.

    Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Birthday, Carter. Love seeing your boy obsess over Minecraft and Pokemon–his double lives in our house!

    Sounds like a great day! Good luck with the move. Can’t wait to hear more about your new place.
