Happy Mother’s Day! I had the best Mother’s Day ever. I spent the day snuggling with Daddy and Boogie! Things have been so hectic around here, so we just wanted to relax.
I had written a post this morning regarding my Baby Blues (which I’ll now be postponing until Tuesday). As I finished the post, Daddy surprised me with one of my Mother’s Day gifts! He called me over to look at Boogie who was sleeping. He said that Boogie was making his famous pucker face and to hurry up and look before he stops. So I go over and notice that he’s not even making the face. Daddy’s like you don’t see it? And I’m like no. Then I notice a navy blue jewelry box in between Boogie’s arms. It was dark and I may as well be blind, it’s definitely time for some new glasses. So I didn’t see the box right away. I open the box and reveal…
Daddy had something else up his sleeve. He had me read this post while he stood behind me. I got to the last sentence…
Oh and by the way Sheena, turn around.
Confused, I reread the sentence and thought to myself… Why am I turning around? This is like something from a movie when a guy proposes.
I turn around and there Daddy is kneeled down with an open ring box!!!!!!!! It was snot, hugs, and kisses from there and of course I said YES. Well actually, I said of course!
*ignore my nails*
Clutch your pearls, Daddy and I are not married. *GASP* I don’t bother correcting those who call us husband and wife here. Please don’t think of us as heathens, lol. Basically we feel a couple shouldn’t rush into marriage especially when a baby comes into the picture. A wedding is something that we both want to enjoy and cherish, so we much rather wait until we are able to coordinate something decent rather than run off to the Justice of The Peace or end up having a house wedding with Popeye’s chicken :-/. We don’t plan on “doing it big”, but we surely can make it look that way by using our resources and sticking to a reasonable budget. We have plans for June 14th 2009. Save the date!
So as you can see I got some very lovely gifts on my very first Mother’s Day. I really wasn’t expecting so much, just having Jayden was enough for me!
