The Truth about Mother’s Day
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, so let me clear up a few things…
- Plan what you want to do. Uh, how about no?!?! As a mom, I am always planning every detail of our lives and the lives of our crib midgets, so… no I really do not what to think of and/or plan what I want to do. I would love plans to be made without me having to collaborate on any detail. I do, however, prefer to be the one to get those crib midgets ready (since let’s face it, Mommy has a better sense of style).
- What do you want for dinner? See number one. I want no part of any planning of any sort. And I can be almost certain this is true for all moms, since I am a control freak who likes to plan every detail of everything, and even I want the day off from planning!
- Take the day off. Don’t’ worry I will take the day off from the mundane daily work, and this is because I busted my ass the day before to make sure it was all done before Sunday. Realistically, it’s more of ‘condensed work hours’, but sure let’s call it taking the day off.
While these are all three very true, here’s another fact to clear the air—even if it’s before the sun rises, the very second I hear those sweet voices and “Good Morning” my heart will melt and my Mother’s Day will be made. The reality is that although I don’t want to plan anything I will probably end of planning most if not all of the day, and figuring out dinner plans, and I’ll never really take the day off. But that’s okay.
The sound of their voices, the feeling of their arms wrapped tightly around me, the homemade school gifts, and that sweet daily “Good Morning” is all I could ever need to have an amazing Mother’s Day. So here’s to all the other mom’s out there—although your Mother’s Day will likely never be the stuff of luxurious relaxation advertised, it will be everything you want because you have them. Here’s to us! Happy Mother’s Day!
