my fifth mother's day: i love the special treatment ... it never gets old! i slept in a bit, rupert made me an awesome breakfast (omelets, fruit, and bacon), i bathed the kids, we went to my baa-chan's grave, and we had dinner with rupert's family. my in-law's got me a gift certificate to barnes&noble, which i can't wait to spend, and i got this cool vegetable peeler from rupert's grandparents (along with a japanese cucumber plant for our garden). i ended the day with a bowl of coffee ice cream and a dose of alton. bliss!
