Mother's Day- slightly different

So, as a married single mom, for 5 months, with at least 14 to go, I didn't expect much on mother's day this year.  My darling, devoted, husband is busy and the email I received two days before Mother's Day asking if there's anything I want for the day, was more than I had hoped for.

I have been pleasantly surprised, though.  When I offered to reschedule a canceled play-date for Dwight for Sunday, he said, "that's mother's day, mom, how about Monday?"  I knew that Dwight and Bob have been working on gifts in art class at school, and they eagerly presented the results to me AFTER letting me sleep in.  Dwight has repeatedly asked what I want to do for mother's day.

Harold has joined the crowd and enthusiastically wished me a happy day again and again.

Even Zack has asked what he can do for me.  This, after watching his brothers present me with their hand made gifts and saying, "Your gift is ME."  He has a point.  After all, he's my first.  He made me a mom 12 1/2 years ago.

So, while I still had to make breakfast, empty the dishwasher, do 4 loads of laundry, etc., it is shaping up as an enjoyable, happy mother's day.
