So how did you spend the one day of the year set aside to celebrate motherhood? Mani/pedi? Spa day? Restaurant? Did you celebrate?
I didn't celebrate by taking the day off from being a mommy. I did laundry. I washed the dishes. I played make over and house with my daughter. I also cuddled and played with my son. Just a typical day in my house. My hubby is out again for work so we'll celebrate when he gets home.
What I did get was a hug and kisses from my little girl as she whispered "happy mother's day". That was of course, after practicing it to Lola's answering machine. It still made me tear up a little bit and vow to play with her more, listen to her more and love her always.
How do you view mother's day? Is it a day off? A day to get a gift? I see it as day to remember all the sacrifices and pain I went through bringing my children until this world. It's also a day I review the kind of mother I've been. I think what can I improve what and I have I been doing right.
