Happy Mother’s Day to all my Momma’s out there! I sincerely hope you get to have some sort of break…beyond closing the door when you pee. My sister and her hubby are staying at the beach in a condo this week. Being the sweet hubby that he is, my brother-in-law offered to let my sister (B) sleep in another room so she wouldn’t hear their baby. B-I-L offered to get up all night and let her sleep late, a luxury she’s no longer used to, being a school teacher and a first time mommy to the most adorable baby boy in the universe. B said, “I really appreciate the gesture, but then I’ll have to wash an extra set of sheets when we leave…” Ah, yes- Happy Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day after you have kids is a whole lot like planning your own surprise party. My hubby offered to stay up and feed Sadie so I could go to bed early last night. Being that I only had one bottle of milk expressed, I had the choice of: A)staying up and nursing her, thus saving the pumped milk for the wee hours B) staying up and pumping so HE could feed her in the wee hours OR C) going to bed early then getting up in the wee hours my-own-self. I chose C, because I’m an instant gratification kind of girl.
I hope YOU have a fabulous day. I hope you don’t have to do the dishes after you are served breakfast in bed. I hope you don’t have to go to Wal-Mart for diapers, wipes or for your husband to buy your gift. I hope you go to the bathroom with the door closed all day and the only cooking you do is to scrape the burned parts of the grilled cheeses your hubby makes so your kids can safely digest them.
