Mother's Day is a very special day, where once a year you should honor your mother, grandmother, and all the other mother figures in your life, as well as yourself (if you are blessed to be a mother). Not that you shouldn't honor them everyday, you should, but you should celebrate it on this day. It is one day a year where you should be able to sleep in just a bit, have breakfast made for you, and get a special treat. For me that special treat is Starbucks, which I am sipping on now.
I didn't expect a lavish brunch (although I wouldn't turn down Lobster Shop). I didn't ask for expensive cookware (but would love this new purple Le Creuset pot). I didn't request lobster, king crab legs, or steak (which I may or may not regret just a little bit). I didn't say I had to have more craft stuff. And I didn't even ask for this lovely fashionable camera bag. And I didn't pester about a new lens or the software to edit the photos. Okay. Maybe I do that. But not just for Mother's Day, that happens on a daily basis.
I just want well-behaved little boys with extra hugs and kisses all day long. To sleep in just a bit. And to be able to relax a little more than normal.
A special thanks to my mom, grandmas, and all the other very special and influential mothers in my life. I have two very special little boys that I love. The day I became a mother to Connor and the day I became a mother (again) to Dylan are two of the best days of my life. And an extra special thanks to my wonderful husband who has made being a mother possible.
Happy Mother's Day!
