The best daughters a mom could ever dream of.

When I found out I was having a boy after two girls, I had only one prayer (besides wanting him to be healthy, of course). I prayed he’d be cute. Yes, I did. I was so nervous to be a boy mom and I figured cute boys would be easier to deal with. Prayers answered. Haaaa!  Blessed to be his mama. Yes, he is lounging in the Tempur-Pedic bed again.

Hope you all have a wonderful day and find many blessings to be thankful for!

    This was so sweet. I can see you in all of your children. That is too funny about praying for a cute boy! But he is, and your girls are beautiful. (and their drinks look divine!) I hope your day is a good one. We’ll be at college graduation for this Mother’s Day, so that accomplishment makes me a blessed mom!

      Oh yes, that is awesome! A graduation is a big blessing!

    The world is your oyster when you are well rested and you got a wonderful nights sleep. I would fill my day with smiles, open doors with kindness and create beauty with my intentions.

    Happy Mother’s Day to YOU, Melissa!

    Melissa, you have lovely daughters, and the first thing I thought of when I saw your son is, he’s awfully cute. Haha! I felt the same way after having 3 girls, then my son. And thank goodness he is cute because 13 year old boys are a handful.
    Enjoy your Mother’s Day with your family!

    You must have prayed for 3 cute kids. Happy Mother’s Day, Melissa. How is your new church going?

    • Melissa

      Thank you :-) church is going well, still small but growing and we are excited about the progress! We are loving having a building to call our own now! We are starting a MOPS group this fall and we are really excited about that too :-)

    what a wonderful family, not only did you get a cute boy, but what about those girls good job. Hope you had a wonderful mothers day, love this site.

    Do you ever call your son Lukey (or Lukie)? Our firstborn is Luke, and when I would insert his name into songs, I usually needed a 2 syllable name, so even though he is 18 and graduating in 2 weeks, he is still “Lukey” in the bedtime song we sing with all of the kids every night!

    • Melissa

      aw that is so precious!! I called him Lucas when he was little but now mostly just Luke! But my girls sometimes call him lukey :-)

    He is more than cute. Seriously.
    I think girls are great… but boys… gosh, there’s just something so great about them. Maybe it’s just mine… he is attentive, respectful and a delight!

  15. Linda Bates

    You are blessed with three beautiful children Melissa, and your children have a beautiful Mom too :) x

    I see these beautiful pics of the kids and it makes me miss you guys. Hope your mother’s day was wonderful and you got a chance to relax.

    Hugs and God bless, Fi
