On Saturday morning, Mau got everyone up and we had a little cuddle session in our bed. Everyone was dressed and fed, and just when I thought we were leaving, Marco approached me with a folded piece of paper, that read, "Mama, help me find my tete" (pacifier). Ok, I smelled a scavenger hunt! This was gonna be fun!
So I ran upstairs to Marco's crib and in it I found another piece of paper leading me to another clue. Mau had me running around our whole house... and remember, we live in a 3 story house. I climbed up and down A LOT of stairs! But it was worth it! I found a clue stuck to the inside of the toilet seat, another one underneath Jonas... but the best one was INSIDE Marco's diaper. Yes, you read that right... I had to take off Marco's diaper to get it! Finally, all the clues and running around lead me to this:
I GOT A KINDLE!!! For those of you who are my FB friends, you already know this because I just couldn't contain my excitement. And I still can't! I'm already half way through my first Kindle book! Seriously, this is such an awesome gift for me and COMPLETELY unexpected. Mauricio floored me... I had no idea... what an awesome surprise!
The rest of the day was nice too... we went to Target and 5 Guys (mmm) and then back home. We saw the Heat lose (Booooo) and watched a cute movie.
Then this morning we went to church and received an uplifting and encouraging message from Pastor Perry Noble that specifically spoke to me and reminded me that being a mom is a gift from God. He entrusted me with these tiny people, to teach them and lead them and help them grow to know Him. I am the Lord's servant.
This Mother's Day was wonderful! I've felt special, pampered and blessed. I only wish I could have given my moms (Mom, Vivi and Rosana) a big hug and kiss as well.
Happy Mother's Day to all the Mama's out there... New and Old! God Bless!
