As much as I’d like to pretend that Mother’s Day started off with a surprise breakfast in bed, I can truly say I’ve been enjoying our Sunday mornings cooking breakfast together much more. Since the stay home orders began it’s become a new tradition that we have a big Sunday breakfast in our pj’s. Some days it may only be bacon and eggs, others I may try my hand at sausage gravy and biscuits. However today I made a french toast bake [that only Madison and I enjoyed] and we ate on the fancy plates! 😉
I remember my first few Mother’s Day’s in wanting it to be a big celebration or big deal so to say. I can definitely say that since this is my 13th Mother’s Day I feel like it’s ok if it’s just another “normal” day. We should love and cherish our mothers and children every day, not just doing it a little extra that one Sunday in May. And when I say it should be normal, my kids know how to do that to the full extent. Like a nerf gun battle at 10am today which resulted in Madison getting a bullet to the eye and mom totally losing her shit that she’s throwing away every gun and bullet in the house.
I know I’m that person that always shares the funny memes like for Mother’s Day the best gift could be the kids going back to school, or joking that they are the reason mommy needs her wine, or as soon as this disaster is all over I’m heading to Nemacolin for the weekend all by myself. But in reality, are those things really true? No… [except the wine part and they totally know that 😉 ] But guess what, just because I’m the mom that likes to make light of things and joke with these memes and thoughts doesn’t mean I’m any less than that Pinterest mom that makes the cute little pancakes every morning, never has a drink, or is killing it at the whole being a mom and teacher much better than I am. As long as we love our children unconditionally at the end of the day [even if it’s when we can finally take a breath when they’re all asleep at night].
There’s no written law on mothering, so however you’re doing it Mama, you’re doing great. Happy Mother’s Day!
