an entire bottle of bubble bath {mother's day}

who knew sean was a gourmet chef???
have mercy,
it was the meal i've always dreamed of,
but never knew it.
and he came up with it,
bought it,
with two kids in tow,
cooked it,
and cleaned it all up.
by himself.
complete with the lava bunt cake of my dreams.
and mother's day:)
breakfast and flowers in bed,
from a smiling husband,
with the fruit ninja i've been dreaming of for months.
{my kale smoothies just reached a whole new world starting tomorrow}
and 2 cranky kids by his side.
one that woke up at 6:30am for no apparent reason,
other than the sun being up then too,
the other one i was up with until 2am with a teething fever of 102.
those 2 year old molars are beasts.
{3 if you count me}
that's a first.
and then there was sleeping chase,
that sean briskly wheeled into our closet
before the circus monkeys climbed into his bassinet.
then the two big boys went off to church,
and the other three of us stayed in our jammies until lunch.
i spent the afternoon soaking in a bubble bath,
with my head propped up on a towel,
and a book in my hands.
i poured an entire bottle of bubble bath into the tub,
and locked the door.
2 hours of no interruptions.
i had the best day:)
happy mother's day indeed!

What a glorious day for you! Lucky lucky girl. But not about the teething and fevers. Everything else.

Holy cow that meal looks good! So do you drain some water and add more hot? Or do you have a jetted tub as all I can think is two hours in the tub and it would be cold!
