So, that was Mother's Day?!
It was nothing like I imagined! I was going down my blog roll, and all I was seeing was, "My Mother's Day was...Great! Fantastic! All I imagined it would be!!" And, well, to be honest, mine was not much different than any other Sunday. Actually, scratch that, it was different b/c I usually hang out with my parents after church on Sundays, but they were out of town, so it was me and the monkey all by ourselves. NOT that I'm complaining. I was perfectly happy hanging out with my little man. I mean, come on! But when I wanted so badly to be a mom, I pictured Mother's Day to be this wonderful holiday where I floated around in a cloud of happiness-or something like that-doing nothing or everything that I wanted because, well, I was the MOM. :) Instead, I woke up around 7 when the baby woke up, and when I asked Jordan if I got to sleep in, he said, "Yes, but will you go change his diaper first?" I did just that, and got back in bed and lay there while Jordan fed Hampton. Then they came in and gave me a gift card to Old Navy and a gift certificate to get my nails done. Did I mention that when I walked down the hall to get the baby up, I saw a beautiful new rug that I have been wanting on the floor of my living room?? So sweet! We were up and at 'em soon after that for breakfast at Cracker Barrell. After breakfast, we went home, Jordan got ready for work, and that was that for "my day." From there, I cleaned out the garage, cleaned up the kitchen, watched a little TV, played with the baby, fed the baby, went and washed my mom's car, went and washed my car, got a Starbucks, had dinner with the parents, came home, went to bed. Ha! Sooooo not what I pictured. Honestly, though, it was nice. I didn't need someone waiting on me hand and foot. I didn't need the gifts. I didn't need any of the Mother's Day I pictured. I had my baby with me. And that's more than I could have ever needed. I love him so much, and I am so incredibly thankful to be his momma!
