for mother's day, all i really wanted was a picture of me and my kids together.
and i got it:
mr. anderson also cooked some fabulous bacon.
a picture with all of my kids AND bacon...all in the same day?
best day ever.
we spent the afternoon at the pool...and i made every member of my family gasp when i did a cannonball into the water.
i told everyone i wasn't going to get in because A) the water was freezing and B) i'm just not really a pool/lake/ocean/hot tub/any type of water person.
but as i sat there i thought "they would be amazed if i just got up and jumped in, without warning."
and so i did.
and then i got right back out because it was SO COLD.
the cold shock was worth the laughs and screams from my kids though.
mr. anderson said he hasn't seen me that adventurous since we were dating.
wow, i'm totally lame.
i also was greeted with presents from everyone.
they each picked me out something from target (they know me so well).
and to top it all off...i didn't have to cook dinner.
the day also consisted of lots of bickering, fighting, me yelling, time-outs, wiping booties, and so on.
even though it was mothers day, i'm still mom...never off the clock.
but that bacon made up for it all.
and hey...have you heard all the buzz about influence?
i'm gonna be there...and word on the street is that my BFF is going to as well.
come hear how you can use your voice to share the gos-pel.
seriously, y'all...i want to meet you. stop being stalkers.
