Today is a combination of Children's Day and Mother's Day here in Libya. Mother's Day in the US comes later in the year and since I'm here in Libya we celebrate according to the system here.
My kids have been really excited this year about Children's Day. They all wanted something new to wear to school and we've been basically planning and shopping for about a week. I asked my friend Nadia to take the girls out shopping and they had fun having a girls evening out. I hate taking the girls out shopping, so Nadia was a big help. Thanks Nadia!!!
The next day I took Yusef out, and last night we took Ibrahim out to get something new. Ibrahim got a green sweatsuit with Buzz Lightyear on it. He looks so cute in it.
The kids suprised me with two gifts - one was a coffee mug and the other was a silk plant to put in the entry way.
As much as I complain about my kids - I really do love them.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers reading this post!
