Happy double special day to me!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies out there. I get a double celebration today. Not only is it my second year as a mom to my spunky little girl, it is also my birthday. Although a friend of mine swears I am 29 again (this way she can be 29 as well - we're the same age), I am firmly planted in my 30s for a while. Exactly 8 more years, to be exact. Not too bad, I suppose.

Steve and Amelia decorated Mother's Day and birthday cards for me this morning. I was not allowed to go downstairs for a little while, so I finally got around to painting my toenails a funky & bright hot pink. Summer toes!

My cards were adorable and quite decorative. Amelia insisted on using not only stickers, but also markers and animal stamps (using the purple stamp pad, of course). And just before we all got some breakfast in our bellies, Steve and Amelia left the room, coming back downstairs with a gift bag. Amelia proudly handed it to me, saying so matter-of-factly, "this Mommy's."

Amelia and Steve bought me a Nook! A Nook is Barnes & Noble's version of the Kindle - an ebook reader. Check it out RIGHT HERE. Steve thought I needed a gadget. He's been a little obsessed with his iPhone lately, and I've been fighting jealousy since I only have an old cell phone that Amelia recently dunked in the toilet. The Nook should be fun. With an upcoming vacation on our horizon, I look forward to traveling with a slightly lighter bag. Thanks, honey!!!

Amelia hasn't been the nicest girl so far today. Her attitude has gone downhill since her art efforts this morning. We have our fingers crossed that a nap will bring her back to us, smiling and ready to be sweet again.

Have a great day today, mommies! Parenting is a tough job. But a great one too.

Oh, no! I missed your birthday! My treat next time we lunch. You have to tell me what you think of the nook. I've been eyeing it.

Don't worry about my birthday, Tiff. No big deal! So far, I love the Nook. I'm waiting to get the case I ordered in the mail. You need the case to protect it, and it'll also help me hold it like a book (if I want to).
