Y3W: Flowers from Carter

On Wednesday? I had a moment. One that I will never forget.

We were at my parents house for dinner and getting ready to leave. The kiddos were playing happily outside while we were talking to my dad and saying our good-bye's.

Just then, Carter ran up to me with the biggest smile on his face and said "Here mama, I got you flowers!"



I cried a little.  I did.  I couldn't help it.

He continued to bring 5 or 6 to me, one at a time, and then he would look up at me and smile after each one.  He was so proud of himself.

Yes, I know they were just weeds... but to me? They were the most beautiful things I had ever seen. 

He picked "flowers."  For me.  For the very first time. 

{And they weren't my mom's newly planted petunias, whew.}

On our ride home he kept asking "Mama, do you love your flowers?"

Yes, yes I do Carter.  More than you will ever know.

Happy Mother's Day everyone...
I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with love!

This made me tear up. My son is just a few months younger than Carter and I look forward to moments like this.

Kendall just did the same thing on Wednesday night. She told me she was picking a lot of flowers for me for Mother's Day. This age is so much fun. :)
