I said...very frankly to my Hubby and children....I don't want presents for Mother's Day.
I just want a day. A day to sleep in. A day to not do anything! A day to walk around in my jammies without questions to my health. A day where I don't have to cook a meal....or even make a meal for that matter!
Because I have a wonderful family...I got exactly that!
Now...2 nights ago...Hubby was running scared. He was over thinking what I asked for. Thinking I was just saying this...and really wanting something more.
Even my daughter came to me and said...does Dad NOT know you??? According to her...I stated very bluntly and plainly what I wanted. I have never, ever had a problem saying exactly what is on my mind. But, Hubby....like most men...thought I was being a woman. Saying one thing...and meaning another. And if he didn't figure it out...he would be dead.
I assured him...that Sophie was right. I was not asking a secret, read my mind not my words thing. I really didn't want anything....but a day of peace!
They let me sleep in with only a slight bed exploration by Nash, my 6 year old.
And then by 8:30am, they had gone to a McDonald's breakfast and stopped and picked up my favorite cake....and pink tulips! Nash rushed into my bedroom to shower me with gifts...and a ton of kisses! Sophie came in too to offer up some Momma-love. Nash gave me the present he made at school...that I did NOT help with at all. A very cool board that he wrote in paint and glitter...Love U. It's awesome!
Now...being 6 years old...he did NOT get the leave Mommy alone and let her move around unnoticed. He wanted to be his Mommy-fied self and drive me crazy all day! Yes, I get that....that is my boy! Ever 5 minutes...he was in my face asking to hang out with me.
But, at the end of the day....I have a great Mother's Day.
I have a family who loves me enough to let me have what I want.....jammies, pizza, cake and tulips.....and peace!
