Today was my first Mother’s Day, and I’d like to be all sunshine and lollypops, but the truth is it had a rocky start. We had friends over for dinner the night before, which was LOVELY and very enjoyable (more about that later). It was just bad timing! I must remember that next year.
So. After our social evening, Paul woke up feeling a little under the weather. Particularly when Pebble woke us up at 5.45am.
I fed Pebble, fed myself, had a shower and put Pebble and myself back to be again (along with Paul) before I was pleasantly surprised with a card and some pressies. I won’t lie to you. I was starting to get pretty pissed off! The house was a mess from the previous nights dinner, we had to leave by 9am to go to my mum’s and then be back in time to make afternoon tea for Paul’s family who were all coming over at 3pm. And my hubby was hung over and generally not very helpful.
He was very sheepish, and redeemed himself by entertaining Pebble while I finished getting ready, then presenting me with a dustbuster (doesn’t sound very redeeming, I know, but I wanted one) as well as an emjoi (something I also wanted, and bought myself the other day).
I guess you could say there is room for improvement next year. Next year I’ll try to make sure we’re not entertaining the night before AND/OR going out early in the morning. I want my breakfast in bed, god damn it! Some flowers wouldn’t hurt either.
I am very spoilt just to have my beautiful baby girl. I am so thankful every day for her existence, and that I have a (usually) very supportive husband to share her with.
The best part of the day was getting to see all three of my mum’s – mum, step mum and Paul’s mum. They are all amazing women who I’m very lucky to have in my life, and I enjoyed being able to pay tribute to them, in the small way that I did.
How was your Mother’s Day?
