Mother's Day

Seth works early Sunday mornings, and we spent the rest of Mother's Day with our mothers, so we celebrated my Mother's Day a few days late, on Seth's day off.  It was lovely, laid back and simple, just how I like it - and Seth made all the meals!  =)

With this group, we often get stares and comments when we go out as a family, and recently, we were in a nearby town where we were anticipating these a bit more than usual.  As we were walking through the parking lot, an older woman was approaching, and she gave us "the look" (anyone with more than the usual number of children knows this look - a double-take with a mixture of shock and disbelief and sometimes a bit of disgust), then said the standard, "Are all of those yours?"  I always try to answer cheerfully and proudly, "Yep!"  Then she surprised us when she said, "You're a lucky lady!"  
Why yes, yes I am.  =)

We know that look! It sure is pleasant when they surprise you with appreciation of large families!
