The best gift ever

So yesterday was my birthday and I just have to tell you about how sweet my kids are. A friend of mine took my younger kids to target and gave them each $10 for them to spend on whatever they wanted. Well they told her it was my birthday and they wanted to each buy me a present for my birthday. When they got home they had these huge presents and I said, “you should have gotten something for your selves not for me”. My Daughter SS said “we have everything we need, we have plenty of toys and we really wanted to get you something with or own money.” I was tearing up cause it was so sweet of them to be so unselfish, and I thought to myself, Maybe I have done something right! So I open my presents and SS got me 4 red dishes and WO got me 4 red bowls to match. Well I gushed over them, of course they don’t match anything I own, but I can’t wait to use them cause I am so proud of my girls. They are the best gift ever!


Here they are on their first day of school.

First of all HAPPY BE-LATED BIRTHDAY! You have some wonderful little sweethearts there! Not many kids would even think to do that for their mom. I certainly think you did something right!
