Random Acts of Kindness

Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's reading this!  I hope you get a day full of whatever you were hoping!  Last night, my five year old daughter brought out some nail polish and lotion because she wanted to give me a foot rub and paint my nails.  No spa could compete with that service!!
M's favorite movie is Brave, so I found the YouTube video of Merida being inducted as a princess at the Magic Kingdom yesterday.  We watched it as our nails dried and snuggled on the couch.  
When I woke up this morning, I got a beautiful card from hubby and snuggles from my boys.  M surprised me with her card and present she made in Kindergarten.  So cute!! 

In non-Mother's Day related news, runDisney released pictures of the medals for the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend and Dumbo Double Dare races. 

 The Disneyland Half Marathon probably won't ever work for me to make, the timing is just all wrong.  That doesn't stop me from being mega-jealous of everyone who will be earning these medals.  Good luck and have a blast everyone!!
You can read how this started (along with my first reported Random Act of Kindness) here or the second one here
Random Act of Kindness #3: Maybe this doesn't count as an "act of kindness", maybe it's more of a favor??  I'm not sure, but it put a smile on someone's face and it was in the right spirit, so I'm putting it down.  This week, I heard through the small town grapevine (yes they exist) that a friend of mine was taking her two small son's to the Mother's Day event at the school (the Grade 1 - 4 class invite their mother's in for pampering).  The day was supposed to be for her, but she didn't know what to do with the other kids so she was bringing them along.  I called her up and offered to watch the smaller children so she could enjoy her time with the older ones.  She was happy and it was no problem for me.  My kid's got to play with some friends and she got to enjoy her mother's day experience.  Everyone wins!  :) 
Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's, mother-in-laws, step-mothers, grandmothers, and mother figures (aunts, cousins, babysitters, etc).  The world is a better place because of your love for children!!  Hope you have a great day!!
