My Triplet Ballerinas: Mother’s Day Gifts
Guest blogger: Megan J. My triplet ballerinas are my daughters, Makenna Anne, Jaeli Jo and Maysie Jailyn.
My first Mother’s Day was over 12 years ago when I was pregnant with the triplets. Before that, this special day only meant just celebrating my Mom. It was always hard thinking of something to buy her that would mean a lot. After becoming a mom myself, I realize no matter what I get her, it will always mean a lot to her.
Now, I look forward to the little gifts the kids make me or the ones they buy me. When I got home from the store the other day, after leaving them at home with their dad, I walked into the garage and saw a pot of calla lilies. These are my favorite flowers and I always enjoy getting them. I have a few spots in the flower bed where they come back each year, but most of them don’t make it through the winter. So, the more, the better! The triplets have usually remembered over the last couple years that this is my favorite flower. They have had to remind their dad a few times though, but I think he remembers now thanks to them! I told my husband how nice it was he even got me purple ones, which are my favorite color. I added that I couldn’t believe he remembered! He then let me down easy and said it was one of the triplets who told him. They know me well!
My children usually still need help to come up with gift ideas for me and be reminded of the day. My birthday is right before Mother’s Day so that is two gifts they have to come up with. But, honestly, I would be happy with a hug and “I love you” on both days.
