Mommy and Me Monday!

Why do weekends go by so fast? Monday is here yet again - and it's always a bit of a bittersweet day for me. On one hand, I love getting dressed up and going to work, going to the gym during the lunch hour, shopping, or lunching with friends -but at the same time, I miss my boys terribly when I go to work!

Nothing is as sweet to me as weekends with my boys. Waking up together, taking our time to get dressed, and doing whatever we want. Yesterday, we went to the sugar bush and it was amazing - the kids had the greatest time, and I was even able to get in a picture with them!

The truly amazing thing is that we're all looking at the camera and smiling! You all know this is not something that comes easy with children, right? Now I'll be able to look at their little smiley faces all day long...

Fantastic photo. And I thought I was mother-of-the-year because I took my kids to a pet store yesterday. I just set the bar low...

Happy work and workout!

First, what a fun day.

Second, what did you do to the photo gods that you are all looking good and smiling at the camera...I'm so jealous.

Love the picture...thanks for participating, too.

Mondays are so tough. I feel pulled in two directions, just like you. Sad to leave the boys and the comfort of home, but excitd to get to work and be productive. One thing for sure though, life with kids goes fast, so before you know it, it will be Friday again!

This is really heart warming... memories such as this lingers forever as children will never have the exactly the same experiences. As parents we must invest in our child's memory bank as in the future they will be able to look back and remember this making them a better person

Mommy and Me Monday is a FANTASTIC way to spend that 1 on 1 time! Love it! You are living right to get that great photo shot...way to go Mom!

Laurie said...

Love the picture - I never seem to get good pictures of me WITH the kids - lots of them, but never with me!

Maria @BOREDmommy said...

Your boys are cute, with a just the right amount of a troublemaker twinkle in their eyes.

Shannon @ AnchorMommy said...

I agree -- fabulous photo!!! Oh, I felt the exact same way about weekends when I was working. I couldn't wait to have a couple whole days where we didn't have to worry about schedules. I still can't wait for weekends, but mostly so I can have my husband around more to help!

Okay, I'm sorry, but I just have to ask.....what's a sugar bush?
