Mother’s Day Part One

I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing Mother’s Day yesterday (or a nice Sunday). My husband cooked me some of my favorite things (steak and bacon), plus ran a bubble bath for me and took the kids out of the house so I could enjoy it in peace, so I was a happy girl.

My family got me a few presents for Mother’s Day yesterday. One present has yet to be delivered, but my husband showed me a picture (so it counts) — an air fryer. This is cool because a) we can enjoy fried foods for less calories and b) I won’t risk burning the house down again trying to fry stuff. (There will definitely be a post for this one soon.) I was also given a gift made by Little Man that will get a post all of its own. And then there was an awesome gift that made me geek out — an R2-D2 measuring cup set.

The set looks exactly like an R2-D2 toy while assembled.

It comes apart into measuring cups and measuring spoons of varying sizes. Rather than attempt to draw a butchered looking R2-D2, you can view the real deal here.

I had barely taken R2-D2 out of the gift bag when the kids began clamoring over who would get to hold him first. Because obviously, the recipient of the Mother’s Day gift wouldn’t have dibs. And when they realized that he comes apart, well, all hell broke loose.

Apparently my kids’ arms do the Stretch Armstrong thing when they’re fighting over something.

Thanks, guys.

The next time my husband and I do any gift giving, we’ll have to make sure we give the non-boring gifts in private.

As a little bonus, I’m going to close this with a doodle from Little Man. He saw me drawing the R2-D2 and drew C-3P0 on his tablet to go with this.

How was your weekend?

I’m a SAHM to two kids. When I’m not doing all the typical mom things (diapers, soccer, etc.), I like writing, reading, and playing games. Clearly I live the life of a rock star.

  1. That measuring cup set is the most amazing thing I have seen all day! I got a new crockpot. I needed it, and it was the one I wanted. But still, it doesn’t look like R2-D2. I suppose on the plus side, my kids couldn’t care less about it.

  2. Lol. I’m digging this new thing you’re doing. It’s original. Good thinking. 🙂

    I was finally able to go to my grandparents and do some work for them outside. He’s getting rougher by the day and it was good to hang out and help them out.

    1. One of his goals this summer is to doodle some cartoons for his own blog. I love it when he wants to break away from the screens to do something creative!


    1. I’ll probably play with it more myself than use it for baking 😉

      He did good — he was drawing on paper yesterday using some stuff he learned in class for cartoons. I was impressed. He taught me a few things for facial expressions.


  3. One of my offspring (The one I spent almost $400 on recently) gave me a dozen violet roses and a bag of truffles. I did not know truffles were so delicious. When I said thank you, I was told said offspring was now broke. 😂
