Last night the boys told me that they were already planning Mother’s Day for me. First, they said, they were going to let me sleep in until 1:00 PM if I wanted to. Next, they would give me love – hugs, kisses and cuddles. Isaac said this was because they knew I wouldn’t want any gifts to show how much they loved me. Gabriel said he would also show his love by not giving me flowers, that way I wouldn’t have to watch something beautiful slowly die on the dining room table. Then they said they wondered if Dad would like the same thing for Father’s Day. “Probably not,” I said, shaking my head. “Dad prefers his gifts of love in the form of something shiny, fun, or drinkable”.
