Love in the Time of May

This is the first year that my son really grasps holidays. This morning, he gave me a big, cheesy smile and a loud, "Happy Mother's Day!" that melted my heart. He drew me a big, red heart on giant paper.

(May I also say that this morning, for the first time ever, my son got out of his own bed, came in our bedroom, and saw us still sleeping - my eyes were shut but I was awake. He gave a little Gasp! and then ran back to his room and climbed back into bed! What a good boy.)

May is a very busy time. It is also a time of a lot of celebration for some pretty spectacular women.

My mom's birthday, my best friend's birthday, and my birthday are all within ten days of each other in May, AND it is Mother's Day for all of us.

We are some bitchin' broads. And Taurus to boot!

Here is the Taurus horoscope for today on

Your capacity for contentment is enormous, even if you are sometimes unfulfilled. Today brings a deep sense that everything is okay, no matter what’s really going on. Work with it — you won’t be sorry.

I like that. Everything is going to be ok. Off to enjoy the day!

Happy Mother's Day Kristy! Your little boy sounds adorable. May is definitely a busy month for me too.

Thanks for visiting me today:)

Happy Birthday when it comes :) Mine was Friday (6th) and I agree that May is THE best month! So sweet that your boy let you 'languish' in bed a bit!

Hope you are having a great Mother's Day!

fear of waking you up - a good fear i think

Happy birthday.
That's so funny that your son gasped and ran back to his room. My five year old FINALLY stopped screaming "Maaaaaaaamaaaaaaaa!" when she wakes and up figured out that she can just come up to my room and whisper it in my ear. Much nicer.

Ah, what a sweetheart!
My Little Miss was excited to give me present or as she said my "box with my necklace that was broke but we got it fixed for you". Thanks for keeping the surprise! :)

He ran back to bed? I need to learn from you! My kids just insist on being fed breakfast immediately upon waking!

Happy birthday to all your loved ones and to you. And may I borrow your son to run a training course for my kids?
