The Greatest Gift…

Stop the presses! I am the “Best Mom in the Universe.” Yup – the whole entire universe. See…

Which sure beats the time where I was “

She even made a balloon wearing a drawn on Texans hat and a face to pretend to be her dad since he couldn’t be there.

Once I finished my breakfast, she told me I needed to come see the living room. My living room usually looks like this…

Typical suburban, beige, you might even say boring living room. This morning, it looked like this…

Yup, that would be toilet paper! She wanted to decorate and couldn’t find the streamers, so being the crafty girl that she is she decided to use toilet paper. It was hilarious!

I did not take any pictures later once it had fallen down and the puppies had chewed it into like ten bazillion pieces that covered the entire house. Okay, ten bazillion is a bit of a hyperbole, but you get the idea…It was just too depressing.

The best part about the entire day was seeing the look on her face when she surprised me. She was so proud of herself and so full of joy. That look was the best present she could have given me! It means I’m doing something right as a mother. I love that she can appreciate the feeling you get when you give of yourself to someone else, and find joy in that. I’d like to think she gets that from me.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go take care of a little surprise of my own. Since she didn’t think I’d be here when she got home from school today, I’m going to surprise her with a batch of her favorite brownies.

Maybe I really am the best mom in the universe!

P.S. Bella says if you plan to TP your living room use something other than Quilted Northern. It might be great for wiping you know what, but it falls apart really easily and was really difficult to tape up. Which is why the dogs got a hold of it…
