My wife and daughter are beautiful flowers and I don't think anyone could ever understand how much they mean to me. I have never loved two people more than I love them and it is now another Mothers Day and I get to thank God for the mother of my child Kalyn. Erin has been there for me through so much since we have been married and this love from her can never be determined by human measurment. She has sacrified everything to stay home with Kalyn and make sure she has all the tools she needs in order to be successful while juggling a full load of classes in college. We have often had differences when we have been raising Kalyn but this has also allowed the three of us to grow as a family. I am sitting on the couch with Erin and Kalyn this morning and I am thinking that life does not get much better than this. I had to take a quick break to clean the kitchen because Kalyn and I turned it into a tornado last night and that was not cool because it is mothers day weekend and we didn't clean it up after we were done. Erin walked into the kitchen this morning and just came back to the couch and sat back down looking at me. I knew it was time to move and get that kitchen clean.
The kitchen is clean and Erin and I are still chillin'. Kalyn is eating the wonderful invention known as the Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich. We have homework to do then it is off to the "Silly Supper" tonight at church.
I bring up mothers day because I do love my mother but as I think about it I do not know if my brother and I ever made a mothers day easy for my mother. We were constantly fighting through life and I still have not figured out why. Well I hope that I can make my wife mothers day a great one and Kalyn has already started the process. She tried to give Erin her gift on Friday night because she can hardly contain herself because she has worked on it so hard and so secretly since Erin has not been home many afternoons this week. By being able to spend more time with her this week I have learned that Kalyn is a miniature me and my wife informed me that little girls wanna be like their Daddys and I am constantly getting on her for being like me and doing things like me. Guess what I was wrong again about parenting again.
Kalyn and I made Erin pancakes last night and this was the cause of the major mess in the kitchen. Chef Kalyn made it happen and ended up cooking some of the best pancakes I ever had in my life. It didn't hurt that we had some Cracker Barrel syrup for these wonderful creations made by my lovely daughter. Erin is almost finished with her degree and we will soon only have one college student in this house and it will not be Erin. I am so very proud of her and she is really looking forward to just being a stay at home mom. This will be pretty awesome since we have had to juggle life around both of us going to school at the same time. This will be a relief and be scary at the same time but I know she is looking forward to it.

Well that is about all that has happened this week and I hope that everyone has a wonderful mothers day and that we all love our mothers on this date a little more.

Flanders Out.
