Yesterday my two boys went to town and came back with these gifts, incorporating their love of Pokemon and my love of crochet with Mother’s Day.
Gifts from My Boys
It was my eldest son’s idea to go into town. It’s something he likes to do occasionally, but he’s never taken The Little Man Before. I was a bit concerned but the Little Man turned to me and said ” What are you worried about Mum, it’s only two autistic boys going to town together?” I know I shouldn’t worry. It turned out that I’d been the least responsible adult, I’d been working with The Little Man making cup cakes for his grandma. They had gone out about 1pm and I’d forgotten to given him his lunch! Thankfully, Eldest son treated him to a meal at Mc Donald’s while they were out. They were back a couple of hours later bearing gifts. (Of course they had gifts for themselves too!)
Mother’s Day 2022
How cruel is it to have the clocks go forward on Mother’s Day! No, lie in for me, getting up at 8am is already late enough. It’s now nearly lunch time and everyone else is in bed apart from me and the Little Man. I’ve done all the housework and put a wash on.
Star made me some cupcakes. She doesn’t do much cooking but loves to make cake and bread.
My eldest daughter doesn’t get paid until tomorrow but I’m sure she will treat me.
I wanted to go to the cemetery this weekend but I should have gone yesterday when it was warmer. I don’t think I saw Graham for more than 10 minutes yesterday though, so we never had time. If the weather isn’t too bad next week I’ll pop down and make sure it’s looking tidy.
I think I’ve been through it all over the years, Mother’s Day alone when my kids have been too young to understand, Mother’s Day estranged from my own Mother, Mother’s Day where I’ve received nothing and felt totally unappreciated, Mother’s Day without my Mum after she died. I think maybe the only one I have done is Mother’s Day without a child, my children have always been my greatest achievements in my life, I feel so lucky to have them.
It is so touching to see how your sons have treated you on mothers day with such a gift that truly matches with your hobby. It is a lovely gift.
Thanks for sharing with us too.
Have a great week ahead!
Aww! What lovley gifts and how wonderful that your boys got to go out together. It sounds like they had a great time.
It was rotten that the clocks went forward. It has really messed with my sleep pattern. My two didn’t get up until late either. Long gone are the days of them waking me up with breakfast in bed. lol
That is such a thoughtful gift and the best part of it is that they went out together and really thought of you – such a heartwarming blogpost 🙂
How lovely that they went shopping together and that big brother treated his brother to a burger too!
awww lovely gifts, happy Mother’s day to you X #mysundaysnapshot
How lovely that your boys went shopping together. The Pokemon crochet is a fantastic idea!
Mother’s Day is certainly a day of mixed emotions for so many. Only my daughter actually remembered to say happy Mother’s Day to me when she woke up, but the boys had remembered to get me presents and cards (even if one of them did actually say ‘Happy birthday’ inside!).
You are such a strong strong lady and you deserve all the happiness in the World. I’m so glad that your kids can give you that sense of wholeness. Thanks for sharing and for linking up with #MySundaySnapshot.
