Wicked Mother's Day Idea

First of all, it's really hard to take pictures of your own hand.  Second, they look really old.

I just got back from the cutest Mother's Day activity EVER.  My youngest is in Kindergarten and last week I got  invited to a "Mommy Makeover Day".  Dad's were solicited to send in breakfast foods (I'm sure the momss actually brought them anyway) and moms were invited to bring all of our beauty supplies for a morning of pampering.  My son was not thrilled with the idea.  He told me, "Mom, I'm going to mess you up."  I kept asking him to come, because I knew he'd be disappointed if I didn't.  He was being a little bit of a stinker, but right before he left for school, he finally reluctantly agreed that I could come.

I got there a minute late, and I could see pure relief and joy spread over his face that I actually showed up. Like every good mom, I held in the "I told your so". He brushed my hair and applied some lotion. I didn't bring a lot of make-up, because I don't really own much and I didn't really want him getting near my stiches (they're coming out today!).  I wish I had my camera because some of the Moms were masterpieces of make-over glory.  I'm not sure if some of them had any make-up left to take home. 

 I did get a lovely green manicure.  I texted a photo to my hubby and he declared I'd been Lady Gagad, but I think it's more Wicked. The professionals usually only apply polish to your nails, but I have it all over my hands as well. I'm one lucky girl.

After our breakfast and makeovers, the kids sang to us.  Adorable.

It was a great morning!
