However, the highlight of my day was receiving a very special hand-made card from my sweet girl! It is pink (no doubt), and came adorned with darker-pink hearts and flowers. She had carefully selected their location, and glued them on all by herself. She even drew the stems and leaves, and completed the look with a few sparkly 'diamonds' affixed to the card's interior. My sis had thought to write the words I (heart) U Mommy in pencil, and then Myla traced over the pencil with a (you guessed it, Pink!) marker. Adorable!! I had to fight back a few tears, especially with how excited and proud she was to show me her work of art. (Rather impressive, too, I might add!)
TIP: 3-year olds have a hard time keeping secrets. ;) She did mention before mother's day that she had a 'surprise' for me - and that it had a pink flower glued to it... But alas, I still could not have been prepared for such a beautiful and heart-felt gift! And she didn't give away all of the details!

WHIDFML: Re-potted all house-plants in GOOD soil, and moved the herb-garden pots to the living-room bay window... (SOUTH-facing! Further research alerted us to the fact that herbs need lots more light than they'd have received facing Nort~)
