My Mother's Day!
My mother's day started a little early this year see on Friday my daughter presented me with the above gift! I could not have been more excited and emotional. All week she was talking about how she had a surprise for me and she also spoke on how she learned about plants in school. I can see her little eyes just light up every time she spoke about plants and planting. Unfortunately Friday came and she was too sick to go to school. She kept reminding me about the surprise and how she had to go to school to get it. So my husband went to the school picked up her homework and the present. OMG!!! I am such a dork when it comes to these things but I got so emotional, like this is the very first hand made mothers day present that my child has made for me with her own two little hands at school! OK maybe I am a little overly dramatic. But this is the kind of stuff that I dreamed about when I thought about motherhood. I always dreamed of the little handmade gifts from school. I save everything she does... I was so excited! I was even that much more excited because she was happy!
Then mother's day came and I got this:
I think this is the perfect mothers day card! I mean not to say that my husband doesn't help out but you know how it goes...LOL
For the most part Mother's day was like any other day, except we got to go out for a nice early dinner. I got a few gifts, but really I was just happy to be around my family. That's all I really want.
I know I have been a mother for four years now but it still kind of doesn't feel real to me... I mean you go about your business everyday and some days I just stop for a moment and think..."I have a 4 and 2 year old really?" LOL I mean not sure if that happens to anyone else but it does to me. This mother's day I took the time to look with in myself. I ask that I try to be more patient especially now with the girls being so close in age... its like they never stop moving... I can't really keep up. I also asked that I try cutting myself some slack. I am by no means perfect. I may never be perfect. I constantly say that yet I continue to fall into wanting to be perfect. Wanting to do everything just right and wanting to please everyone. So yesterday I enjoyed the day... left the house for our early dinner with the family, and really didn't worry about the two loads of laundry that needed to be washed or that fact the my floor hasn't been mopped in two weeks. LOL OK I will mop tonight! I just enjoyed the fact that I was able to share this moment with my kids and my mother. It can't get any better than that! Well may it could,... wish someone would have got me a maid for mothers day! But there is always next year!
