Happy Mothers Day

Last year Mothers Day was less than stellar. I woke up threw up (I was pregnant with S). Got B up who threw a mighty temper tantrum. Made him breakfast..threw up. After about 4 hours my hubby woke up and presented me with his first of many Mother's Day gifts an empty mug out of the dishwasher to fill with coffee for him. Overwhelmed by this wonderful thoughtful gift I threw up.

After a wonderful morning of making everyone breakfast we met up with my hubby's mother for her Mother's Day brunch. This brunch lasted for three hours. During which B went nuts and ran around the restaurant shrieking and trying to draw on the walls with crayons. I spent the meal chasing him and trying not to get sick. When it was finally over my husband turned to me and said, "Wasn't that great it was almost relaxing."

After bursting into tears we went home where I received my second Mothers Day gift a B throwing up and getting a case of the runs after eating who knows what at the restaurant (at that point he'd put anything into his mouth)

But when I read B his bedtime story and he leaned against my big tummy where S (who we called Martini at the time) was swimming around. I felt very special. So I guess it was a good Mother's Day after all. With my little family surrounding me there was no where else in the world I'd rather be (except maybe getting a manicure and drinking a large martini in the Bahamas but I digress).

Here's wishing you all a wonderful Mothers Day and may you get lots of Mommy time and may you not have to clean any vomit or runny poop at least on Sunday.

I think you need a hug. I am wishing for you a righteous Mother's Day this year. Make sure you post about it. I want to know how it turned out.

P.S. Mama Zen is right.

Happy Mother's Day, you. I hope you got special treats that didn't require Clorox and a mop. ;)

that definitely sounds like a typical mother's day. I hear that one day we'll look back on this with fondness. I'm not sure about that sometimes. But the memory can be a tricky thing.

Just like how childbirth hurts, then we have more because we forget the pain.

Yay for no vomit and no poo...

(Actually I would be seriously worried if i had to clean up spew or poo.. My youngest is taller than me.. so he can clean up his own mess..)

Now where was I???

Oh that's right Happy Mothers Day Woohoo...

cheers kim
