May Photo a Day
Day 13 = mom
As I’ve said before, Mother’s Day is always a little sad for me now. My mom’s absence always hangs a little heavier on my heart.

But it’s’ pretty much like any other day otherwise. I don’t get breakfast in bed or anything like that. My boys are 5 and 8, so that’s a little much to expect from them. Maybe next year!
My sister Michelle and I did visit my Nana in the nursing home. The kids brought cards they had made for her. We ended up staying longer than I thought we would be able to. It helps there is this great outdoor courtyard area for the kids to run around in if they start to get too restless.
Allie and Sam took turns sitting on Nana’s lap. Max kept himself entertained with Michelle’s iPhone. I got a picture of Sam and Allie with Nana but wasn’t able to get one of her with Max.
I think my Nana knows Max has autism, but still doesn’t really understand why he is so quiet and hangs back from her. I think she was a little hurt when he wouldn’t say goodbye to her, but even when he does speak he is so quiet, she can’t really hear him.
On the whole though, it was nice visit and a pretty good day.
