My birthday just past over the weekend and I wanted to share how sweet my kids are. They had been saving all the money I gave them, mostly whatever change was in my pocket at the end of the day, which was never much. They asked me to go to the dollar tree about a week ago which was fine because I wanted to grab a few cupcake mixes. I knew they were getting me a card, but nothing else. Apparently they’d saved up quite a bit because they had bags of change with hem. There was a lot of commotion that day in line and from what others were saying by the time I went through was a girl with her siblings had went through and paid in pennies, nickles and dimes and the teller wasn’t very happy about counting it all. To me, I think it is cute.By the time I had heard it was too late for me to give them dollars, not that I think they would have took it from me.
So over the weekend they decided to make me a cake. They had previously asked what we were doing on my birthday and I informed them that I would NOT be doing anything, not even making a cake. They were bummed and I explained I just did NOT feel like making my own cake, but if they would like to I would buy a cake and frosting. That is exactly what they did. While I had been making breakfast, which upset BabyGirl as she wanted to make me breakfast in bed but I’d made a breakfast casserole the night before so it was already done, they were making my cake. By lunch we were eating cake and opening gifts. I got Vanilla lotions, candles, a dancing reindeer when you stick him in the sunlight and a snow globe. I think these are the coolest gifts because they collected this money and saved it to do this for me. I am such a thankful mom to my wonderful children, love you all, even if you won’t read this post.
