Mother's Day Surprise

Being a mother is the most satisfying, rewarding, amazing, job I have ever had. Being able to be home with my children, watching them learn, grow and experience life is incredible. I am so thankful that my husband not only shares my desire for me to be able to stay home, but he also supports it 100% in so many ways, encouragement, support and working long hours himself to make sure we can finacially swing it.

This Mother's Day I woke with such a feeling of thankfulness.  Everyday of the  year Adam makes me feel loved and appreciated but this Mother's Day was especially nice. He had let me sleep in and made pancakes. Than it was time to open my present. It was large and beautifully wrapped. All the tape was scrunched and crooked because Anna "helped" him wrap it. The present also came with this poem.

Mother's Day Gift

While humble, she's a whiz in the kitchen.

Meals, sweets and treats she be fixin,

Until a recipe calls for some mixin,

She cries, "Adam this thing again needs fixin!"

Until one Mother's Day he decided

That all the ways to fix it he's tried it.

So a surprise in the closet he hided.

He's sneaky and in no one confided.

She thought, "Where I wonder he go?

Well I guess I'll soon enough know"

But her excitement continued to grow.

Perhaps she'll see if his cover he'll blow.

But in a dream was revealed knowledge higher.

Her hubby he went off to Canadian Tire.

And flipped through the latest store flyer.

"That wife what on earth should I buy her?"

Until he turned the first page and he saw it.

He said, "This thing looks legit.

The pro baker's real $*it.

And for my wife's kitchen I think a great fit."

So he found a red shirt who said" kitchens isle three,

But the price it doesn't come free."

He was thinking one hundred, could be.

Redshirt said "No one hundred....times three!"

He fell to his knees in surprise.

"But think of great butterscotch pies

And the doughs that just never would rise

For this quality there are no better buys."

 Avalanche and he done the gift wrapping.

Excited she mostly was clapping.

And curious why this thing they were trapping

He said "the fun it's in the unwrapping."

 So Mother's Day is finally here.

The time of revealing is near.

So unwrap your present my dear.

I love you more my sweetheart each year.

So now you see it in all of its splendour.

Just one thing I say do remember.

I want cookies cakes from now till December

Cause I could have just  bought you a blender.

Happy Mother's Day

Kim & Mommy

We love you!

Have fun baking!

Inside was a stand mixer. The stand mixer I had been wishing for for a long time. I have used it a lot since last Sunday. I have made cupcakes, dinner rolls, bread, pizza dough, cookies and cinnamon buns. It is wonderful. But even more amazing than the gift is the heart behind it. He loves me and wants me to succeed in this job that I have. He wants to make it easier and to enjoy it. Oh what a wonderful Mother's Day!


  1. I love the poem! Too cute. And what a great present. I'd want one if my kitchen was bigger :)

  2. Brilliant poetry. I was thinking of recalling some of my favourite lines in this comment, but then realized I'd just end up re-writing the poem. I couldn't help but read some of the lines in Yoda's voice, too.

    When I let Kathryn buy a pizza stone a couple of years ago I made her promise 3 batches of cookies per month for the next 3 months, so I totally understand that last verse. Enjoy your new power tool Kim, and enjoy the products, Adam!!
