Today was mother’s day. For the most part, it was just another day. The kids don’t understand yet what mothers day is, and they show me how much they love me every day with their hugs and kisses and smiles.
When Hubs asked me what I wanted I was kind of stumped. I just wanted a carefree day to spend enjoying my babies. Not feeling tired, overwhelmed or stressed. So after giving some thought to how exhausting the last couple weeks have been while he’s healed (slowly) for his vasectomy, and being up most of the night with one of kids, plus the stress of our move (not to mention pregnancy) I asked for 5 things.
1- To sleep through the night and sleep in in the morning. I only slept until 830, but wow I felt good when I got up.
2- To shower without interruption our feeling rushed. It’s the small things.
3- To not have to change a diaper. This one is self explanatory. I did change a couple. But it was by choice.
4- To not have to plan our cook a meal. I do 98% of the meal planning and cooking. It was great to not have to do it for one whole day!
5- To not have to clean, and have the house clean to start the week tomorrow. It’s not quite done the way I do it. But the point is, I didn’t have to do it.
So what did I do today? I played with my kids. All day. I read. I cuddled. We went to the park. We played in the yard. I relaxed. I enjoyed being a mom with none of the responsibilities to take I’ve my day. And it was amazing.
I hope everyone got their wish this mothers day. Moms are amazing, you’re all doing am amazing job!
Love, hugs and more to come later!
