Mother's Day Rocks- because I'm a winner.

Greetings sluts and whores! So I forgot to post about this yesterday because sometimes I can be a complete retard. I'm sorry- I just can't help it.

So in April a fellow blogger, Spirit Phoenix, was having a give away based on doing good deeds. Obviously I was going to win this no matter what. Luckily for me and another fellow blogger, Insatiable Host, I did win. How did I win? Well I bought Insatiable Host her very first vibrator. I was shocked, and slightly appalled, that this adorable and super fun chick had not taken life by the AA batteries and bought herself one. Clearly, this is something I can't ignore. So I bought Insatiable her first vibe and I hear it's fabulous. But then I saw that Spirit was having this good deed contest and I thought well hell-- if THAT isn't a good deed then I don't know what is. And then I won. Yay for fun mail! But you want to see what I actually won, don't you??
I would by lying if I said that it's all sitting on my counter like this. The candy is gone (obviously), the chocolate sauce (in the jar) is AWESOME on cheesecake. I got a cool new jean bag for my books, awesome feather earrings, a photo envelope, all kinds of other stuff that is so fun and awesome. I've been busy AND have an idea for the cool square frame I got. Obviously once I'm finished I'll share with you what I did with it.
But today is Mother's Day! (If you haven't called your mama you need to.) My mom rocks. I should rent her out because she is that awesome. My mom tells me when I'm an idiot, and tells me when I rock. She listens to me complain, all of the time, and she watches my kids when I'm at work. She is fabulous. But it's hard to not be fabulous when your daughter is this cute. Seriously.
I dare you to say I'm not cute. I'm fucking adorable. I still am as a matter of fact. AND I look like my mom. We even have the same hands and feet.
But I'm a mommy myself now and I have really super cute kids. I have Olivia, my oldest who will be FIVE in September. (Let's take a moment to let that sink in...) and she keeps me on my toes. She's fun and sassy. She's adorable and sweet. She's gets excited about poop and is a picky eater. She loves music and makeup. She likes her nails done and jewelry. Basically- she is exactly like me.
Well then I have Jackson who is 2. He is my mama's boy and I wouldn't have it any other way. He is mischievous, he's handsome. He makes me laugh and he likes music. His current favorites are Jimi Hendrix and Manchester Orchestra, whom he calls "Chezzie". He likes food and is addicted to milk, which he calls "moke".
Together my kids keep me on my toes. They can tear apart a room in seconds. And they may or may not start fighting with each other. They are goof balls and do each other's hair and makeup. While rocking out.
I love them both dearly and even though Olivia tries my patience with the attitude, I wouldn't change it about her. I can't be mad at her for long especially when she picks me beautiful bouquets of dandelions.
And even when Jackson throws a terrible two tantrum I'm ok. Because you can't get mad at adorable. Well you can. But it never lasts long when he grabs your face with both hands and kisses you. Or gives you a superhero hug.
But this year I actually got a Mother's Day present. Seriously. And for those of you who remembered what I got for my birthday, you might be worried about Matt's health and well being. I can assure you he is still alive. And even though Matt doesn't retain anything I actually say to him which sucks, he can still read. Because folks- he reads my blog. How do I know?? Because in the post I just linked I talked about what he COULD have gotten me. And he actually got it for me.
That's right bitches. This leader is the proud owner of the Jimi Hendrix Experience box set that comes in the purple velvet box.
Now would be an appropriate time to just appreciate my awesomeness.

I also got cute cards from the kids. Then I bought myself a new pair of pants for work, two new bras, a new pair of sandals, the new cd from Minus the Bear (no more listening to the free preview!!), a Cage the Elephant cd....AND.... I got to be home. Alone. Matt took the kids out to his parents house and I got to sit here in the quiet.
That? May have been the best gift of all.
Happy Mother/Head Bitch's Day!

Happy Mother's Day lady! And you lucky thing for winning all that cool stuff!

I didn't know Olivia and I share the same birth month! That obviously makes her the coolest kid around!

Hope you're having a great day lady!

Sounds like you had an amazing mother's day! You were a fucking adorable kid. And now your kids are super adorable.
Glad you got what you wanted from Matt, but is it a good thing that he reads your blog? Maybe he will get the hint and do some of the projects around the house you have talked about. :)

it's good that this mother's day was just the way you wanted it--quiet and your hubbie knew better than to mess up twice with the gift giving thing:) I gotta start doing whatever you're doing so I can get some free stuff too:)

I'm glad you had a nice Mother's Day! My husband actually wasn't a total douche this year. Probably because he's still in the "don'tmakememoveout" stage
