Brandon was awesome and decided that me and mom could go shopping on Saturday and he would "babysit" Karson for the first time ever! With Karson only being three weeks old I assured him it should be a fairly easy task because all he is doing is eating and sleeping.... and we should be back in time for him to eat oh and you may have to change a diaper to :) Well with it being my first time out and about mom and I realized real quickly we weren't gonna be home in time for me to feed him! When you get the two of us together we usually become very gifted in the shopping area :) So I walked Brandon through giving him the bottle in the fridge and believe it or not they all survived!!
Sunday was such a special day...my mother's day gift from Brandon was a new Mac laptop. We have not had a family computer in about 2 years or so we have always used his work computer and he finally decided we would get a family one again!! Yay what a great present. And then he had a sweet card from Karson with a mani/pedi gift card in it..which meant another day out for mommy and daddy gets to "babysit"....He already knew what I needed :) I loved having mom and dad here to celebrate with as well and of course going to our church home was just a great addition to a wonderful Mother's Day!!!
And as the day closed out I told Brandon I think this may be one of my new favorite holidays! You know everyone always ask you what's your favorite holiday and I think I can say Mother's Day! Not so much even because its a day to pamper mommy....but for me it was a reminder to me as to why I do all I do. It helped me to realize I take care of my husband and my sweet baby because I love to. And although it takes quite the energy out of me to do all that I want to for them it's also the gift God has given me. And may I never take a day for granted that I take care of them because it's my calling!! And to see my family honor me was just a small reminder to me that everything I do whether seen or done behind closed doors for them is all absolutely worth it!! Becoming a mom has showed me more of my worth and why I am here and I am so honored to have this as a new roll.
