It has been far too long since I last blogged. I have so much to catch up on and so little time! So here I sit at 11:40 PM watching DWTS. This is the only down time I have these days and it's usually spent catching up on some cleaning. Not tonight! Tonight the dishes are piled up in the sink, the trash needs to be taken out, the floors need vacuuming and there's a mountain of laundry that needs to be done. I've been itching to do some blogging for two months now but have just been way too busy. So tonight the chores can wait!
Yesterday was Mother's Day and to be honest it really wasn't that great. Don't get me wrong, I love all the special attention (who doesn't?) from my kids and hubby but it just seemed like things were working against me all day. Dave and I stayed up late Saturday night and at 12:01 AM Dave surprised me with a basket full of Mother's Day goodies! I was so surprised because it is very hard to surprise me with gifts because I watch our bank account like a hawk! So the fact that he pulled it off without me even slightly suspecting it was pretty amazing! He wrote the sweetest card, had the kids make me a card and gave me some thoughtful gifts. The day started out perfectly! But once we woke for the day Presley was an absolute nightmare! From sun-up to sun-down and it was so frustrating and so draining! And because of her crankiness, things just were not working out how I had imagined. So after some tears, a drive around town by myself and some time to cool down I realized just how much I love my kids even when they drive me absolutely crazy!
I am so thankful to be a Mom. I can't believe I've been a Mom for over six years now and I love that I get to spend eternity with Kyson, Presley and our future kids! Dave made me feel so loved and special even though I was being dramatic and annoying. I absolutely love my family! I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day surrounded by the people they love most.
To the Mother's who have one kid or many, to the Mother's who have sweet angels in Heaven, Mother's to fur babies, or who simply long to be Mother's some day you are why this day is devoted to you. A Mother's love for their kids is in-explainable!
Happy Mother's Day to all!
