Mother’s Day Recap

Some people have asked how my mother’s day went. It wasn’t anything spectacular but I was happy with it. I wish I had done more for my mom. She has done so much for me that I can never truly repay her. I had been planning on making her a photobook but I ran into difficulties with too many photos on too many different computer, cds and photo sites. I did organize my siblings to make a fruit crepe brunch on Saturday morning though. My sister also bought her an outfit from all of us. I didn’t even see her Sunday and forgot to call her. She wasn’t upset at all though since we had celebrated on Saturday.

I was hoping that when I came home from work on Saturday night my husband would surprise me with a clean house (especially since I had told him that’s what I wanted). Instead I found a sweet card and nice leather purse. Earlier, I had jokingly told him that I wanted a designer purse for Mothers Day. It’s a nice purse but I think I’m going to return it. I feel almost guilty about spending so much on just a purse. There are a lot better things to spend the money on. Besides it doesn’t even have a designer label, and what’s the fun of having an expensive purse if nobody else knows it’s expensive?

Sweet Pea’s gift was to let us all sleep in until 8:30 on Sunday. Then we had a quick breakfast and got ready for church. The sermon was a nice tribute to mothers. I especially liked the part where the pastor said that mothers need a supportive partner. That touched my husband as well and he apologized for not being home more often. And then he left to run some errands! I didn’t actually mind too much since I like to have my traditional Sunday afternoon nap. By the time I woke up from the nap, I only had a little while to feed myself, feed sweet pea and get ready for work. I’m a waitress so I got to serve all the families celebrating mother’s day. It sucks to have to work on a holiday meant to honour you.

When I got home that night I was surprised with a clean kitchen and freshly baked cookies. That was the best present of all! Anything that gives me more free time and involves chocolate is a great gift. I’m looking forward to the next Mothers day when maybe my kids will actually understand what’s going on.

I hope everyone else had a wonderful Mother's Day!

  1. I have a side by side jogging stroller. It is a Dreamer Design stroller. I suggest if you get a jogging stroller than make sure you get one with bigger tires. Mine has big tires and it is awesome! The bigger the tire the easier it is to push. They say not to put younger than 6 months old in there, but I put Marlee in there who is 4 months old (Tuesday) but I don't run with her in it yet. I don't think I could run with both kids in it anyways, as I am still trying to get in shape! LOL

    It sounds like you had a good Mothers Day. I would have loved home made chocolate chip cookies and a clean kitchen!


Let me know what you think.
