All the build up, all the anticipation! I think I expect too much.
It will be a perfect day.
Your children will behave like angels.
You will be the perfect Mama.
The house will be calm and serene.
You will get to sleep in.
There will be cards and maybe a gift.
You will plan and attend the perfect brunch.
You will deliver flowers to in-laws with a smile.
You will have quality time with your children.
For the first time in months you will not have to worry about what is for dinner.
The day will be, revitalizing, full of hugs and love, stress free and you will never want it to end.
ERRRRK. Reality Check Baby.
Got that sleep in.
Cards, flowers and gifts that left me in tears. In a good way.
My daughters had a nice squabble over who’s turn it was on the computer.
There was a pre-pubescent melt down because BlueEyes still had NOTHING to wear.
Nobody wanted to have a shower. Not until they stomped their feet and made their point. Not happy.
I raised my voice and begged them to hurry up, then sighed when I saw their clothing choices. Then felt very very bad about that.
We were the last one’s to arrive at the brunch we organized. I drank a boatload of coffee. A smart girl would have made it Irish.
On the way to deliver the flowers to the in-laws, had a wee difference of opinion with my Hubby. There is a mood killer.
On the way home I learned I needed to decide what was for dinner. Their hearts were in the right place, but everyone wanted something different, so I couldn’t win there!
Quality time with the kids? When? Between visits and errands? Not today.
I ate so much! Quite piggish actually. No room for dessert. The children are once again disappointed with me. I hate this more then anything.
Finally everyone is tucked in bed.
SweetGirl felt sick. mmm Yep, she ate too much too.
Watched the Amazing Race and the Cowboys lost! WHAT!
Off to bed to sleep off another Mother’s Day.
Tomorrow, I get to clean up from having a day off.
Next year I promise to just look forward to the cards, the gluttony and the love. My Hubby and babies never let me down.
Hope you all had a joy filled Mother’s Day.
