I experienced my first Mother’s Day last weekend, and, I have to say, I like this holiday. I’ve never felt unappreciated or unloved throughout the year, but the results for being a mother on this particular day worked completely in my favor. For example:
This would be the largest steak I’ve ever seen in my entire life. This steak is so large, it could offend a vegetarian.
See those vegetables on the plate? Asparagus, mushrooms, AND peppered BACON chunks. Husband’s concoction of which I was all-too-happy to test.
While Husband created this culinary masterpiece, he told me and I quote, “I don’t want you to do anything today but enjoy our son.” What?! No laundry? No dishes? No cooking or cleaning? BEST. DAY. EVER.
After lunch, I took a nap. A NAP! The best part? I woke up on my own! Husband, his mother, and Blue went outside to swing. (So sweet!)
Then, Blue decided he wanted a nap. This is how he fell asleep:
When he woke, Husband wanted to read him a story, and I was able to photograph these great images I will cherish forever:
OH AND THEN… I got presents!!!
Not to mention the sweet, reaffirming words and spontaneous hugs from my Other Half that reminded me that I am exactly where I belong. In this family.
I’m humbled and amazed. Thank you, Husband, for loving me so well. Thank you, Blue, for being happy and healthy and such a cool kid.
Finally, thank you, Readers, for allowing me to gush to you about the Best First Mother’s Day to ever happen. I have a lot to live up to on his first Father’s Day. Any suggestions to make it just as special as he made my day? I need all the help I can get!
