Mother's Day 2010

This Mother's Day, I am especially grateful to be a mother. Not that I really took this motherhood thing for granted before, but this time around the day is especially sweet and oh am I grateful to wake up in the morning to big, shining blue eyes and a brilliant gap-toothed smile.

Elise was given a complete set of Little House on the Prairie books as a gift this past week, and she has been soaking in the stories at every opportunity.

Imagine my surprise to come downstairs this morning to find my girl writing a special story for me for Mother's Day. Photos above, transcript to follow:
