Happy Mother's Day!

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.

I guess I'll never be the "blogger" I thought I would become when I first got into writing "Mama Tales".  I would read other mommy blogs and see their success finding advertisements and give a ways.  I thought "Hey, I can do that!"  It worked for a while and I got some momentum while I was a stay at home mom.  Once I we moved our family 1300 miles away from my extended family and I went back to work all this just stopped.  The way I see it, when real life takes you away from your online life then you're doing something right.  

During the wee hours of the morning on the eve before Mother's Day I can't help but feel darn happy with my life.  My 4 almost 5 year old daughter amazes me with her imagination every day.  She's doing awesome in her taekwondo class even though she's the smallest she's one of the louder and faster ones.  She's amazing with her little brother and helps me watch, entertain and care for him as much as she's able to. I got the unmedicated VBAC I was praying for with my son and healed some of the wounds and trauma I felt having a cesarean with my daughter.  The birth was amazing and everything I hoped for.  In another post I'll go into my birth experience a bit more.  My career as lead me into the department I dreamed of since nursing school and I'm looking forward to the next phase of training.  I'm just smiling, just smiling, just smiling at my luck.  #happy
