Mother's Day Recap

Mother's Day is still pretty new to me as a Mother. I feel so honored everyday to Mother my 1 and 2 year old. Being that my kids are so young I am always curious to what my husband has planned for me. I was especially curious this Mother's Day because we were out of town for a wedding & visiting my Family(My Dad, Step-Mom, and Siblings) in Texas!

The morning of Mothers Day. I woke up to my husband giving me a kiss and wishing me a Happy Mother''s Day. He then handed me this letter:

Jonnique,
I want to wish you a happy Mother’s Day.  With all my heart I truly believe that you are the best mother in the world.  The way you love, take care of, protect, teach, and encourage our children is amazing.  I am so glad that you are my wife and the mother of my children (My Babymomma)!  As proverbs 31 says about the good mother, “She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.  Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:  Many woman do noble things, but you surpass them all.”  Those words perfectly describe you baby.  Thank you for being a tremendous woman of God, a wonderful wife, and an incredible mother.  
I know that we cannot celebrate Mother’s Day on the actually date this year because we are in Texas.  Therefore, I have planned for the 28th to be your Mother’s Day.  I know that you work the night before, but I will have Mimi CafĂ© breakfast for you when you get home.  Then, when you wake up, you and me and the kids can go to the park for a late lunch picnic.  Or we can do something else if that is what you want.  It is totally up to you.  Then, we can head back home and spend some time together with the family.  I figured we can feed the kids and put them down, and I will go get us whatever you want for dinner.  We can eat dinner just the two of us, drink some wine, and enjoy ourselves.  After dinner, I was hoping to enjoy some frozen yogurt with you and watch a movie.  And the best part is, I will let you pick whatever movie you want to see.  After all, it is your day.  I will also give you a nice back rub during the movie.  I hope that sounds like some good plans to honor you for being a great mother.  If not, and you want to do something else please let me know.  My heart is to serve you and let you do whatever you want as you celebrate Mother’s Day.  
You are so loved by your husband, son and daughter!  
Happy Mother’s Day,
Wes, JJ, and JoJo.  
Along with this letter he gave me a stainless steel coffee mug! Not just any mug but one with a stainless steel straw!!! I love drinking my coffee with a straw:)

We then went to Church with my Dad & family. After Church we went to a great Seafood Restraunt, where they said it was going to be a 2.5 hour wait. We took this time to talk & of course take pictures!
,
It was JoJo's 1st Mother's Day!
The wait ended up only being 45 minutes! The food & company was great while inside the restraunt. My husband said a great prayer honoring my StepMom & me and my Dad covered the bill! 
My Mothers Day Salmon
One time during the dinner I looked up at my kids and just took in the moment. I love being a mother!
What a Sweet Mother's Day!
To my surprise when we flew back on Tuesday night my husband had these flowers waiting for me!

I spent my Mother's Day taking care of a sick kiddo- that was okay though. It reminded me a lot of what I like about being a mom. Congrats on your day.

I literally had to keep myself from crying while reading your Mother's Day letter. That was so sweet. Sounds like you are the best mom that a kid could have and its great that your husband appreciates you for being so.
