Happy Mother’s Day

Hello lovely ladies!  I just wanted to take a moment on this special weekend to wish you a VERY Happy Mother’s Day!

Now I know we all know that every day is “Mother’s Day,” but on this weekend of all weekends, I hope you feel extra pampered and appreciated for all you do.

I posted on Facebook this week asking what moms wanted to do for Mother’s Day, and one mom commented that she asked for individual “dates” or alone time with each family member over the course of the weekend.

She said, “I asked to spend one-on-one time with each person in my family this weekend. Dinner with my husband Friday night, miniature golf and lunch with my son on Saturday and pedicures and desserts with my daughter on Sunday. :)”

I thought this was the CUTEST idea and I think I might just have to adopt it as a tradition!  I love the one-on-one idea of doing something special. Thanks for sharing Michelle!

But more than anything, I just want my girls to wake me up as they usually do running into the room yelling, “Mommy! Mommy!” because being greeted like a rock star with that level of enthusiasm pretty much can’t be beat.   And in that sense, every day truly is “Mother’s Day” for me.

Have a great weekend everyone!

This Mother’s Day…

…will be better than last years for me.

I was crabby last year on Mother’s Day.  Thinking about it now makes me laugh.  I was about 34 weeks pregnant, hormonal, uncomfortable and knee-deep in managing my gestational diabetes.  I was bitter.  I felt like that Mother’s Day of ALL Mother’s Day I should have been handed the world on a silver platter.  My poor husband could do no right. He grilled fish for dinner without asking me, and I was not in the mood for fish.  The nerve!  Oh my gosh, I was a nightmare.

What a difference a year makes.   This Mother’s Day already feels like the BEST one ever, and it is not even Mother’s Day yet!  I have a healthy, happy 10 month old and a spunky, growing up so fast, almost 4 year old. Life is GOOD.

Here are my two little monkeys that make me a MOTHER.  A very, very happy mother.   Sometimes I think “I am so happy God gave me these two!”  I feel so lucky to be their mom.  I often look at those two little faces and wonder how I got so lucky.  Must be living right or something.

This Mother’s Day, all I want to do is be with my family.   Maybe a little outing to Laguna and a margarita and chips & guac on a patio somewhere would be fun too, but mostly I just want to be together.

I wish all of you hard working moms a VERY happy Mother’s Day!   Our job is hard no doubt.  It’s relentless, 24/7 work. But it’s the best job in the world.

Thank you for reading my blog, I appreciate all my mommy readers more than words can express. So what are YOU doing this weekend?
