A Lemonade Stand & Mother's Day

The most important thing she learned
 over the years was that there was no way to
be a perfect mother and a million
 ways to be a good one.
~Jill Churchill

Isn't it every kid's dream to have a lemonade stand?  I know I always wanted to have one but never got to!  So, when Brady told me he wanted to sell lemonade at our garage sale this year...I told him he could.  A friend of mine let us borrow her cool drink holder and when Brady saw it, his eyes about jumped out of his head he was so excited!  He ended up only having about 10 or so customers because it started raining shortly after our garage sale started...but that was good enough for him.  Later that day he was so sincere in thanking me for letting him sell lemonade.  Of course, I think I enjoyed it more than he did!

Happy Mother's Day!

Cards from my two favorite guys!

Brady made me this bracelet! He was so proud to give it to me...
and I just LOVE IT!

I'm so thankful that I get to be Brady's mom.
When I think of how much we wanted a second child, it
makes me even more thankful that God gave us the first one!
And a cute one, too!

I would be so excited about that drink holder thingy too. You are a great mom to let him do kids are always asking...but they don't plan ahead. They are all like "Can we make a lemonade stand right now?"
What? These things take planning....or maybe not, but we at least need to have some lemonade mix.
Cute cute bracelet, too!
