Another day when they were all little, to really savor and remember before they start leaving in September . . .
What would you REALLY "love" for Mother's Day?(21 posts) (17 voices)
Congratulations, Ruth! =)
A yummy dinner cooked and cleaned up by someone besides me. =) A chance to play a real game that does not envolve cherries, a spinner, or colors and cards. A fantastic book I could read and ignore everyone without the guilty feeling of indulging myself too much at the expense of the family. lol
Delicious food that I don't have to cook or clean up after, an Amazon gift card (for books, of course), and an entire, sunshiny afternoon to read while sipping coffee and eating pastries at a sidewalk cafe. =)
And thanks for the reminder to savor these days with littles Booksworm...I think sometimes those of us in the thick of forget that they will grow up all too quickly...
Dh asked me and I said that I just want a day without distractions to be with the family. So, our plan is to come home from church and just enjoy the day. No phone calls (hopefully - dh is a pastor), no e-mails, no meetings, etc. I think we will read books, play games, and maybe watch a movie together.
Well, my kids already got me one thing that I wanted, we got in on the Amazon deal of the day and got me a refurbished Kindle Fire! I know they got me a few other things, but I don't know what they are. They also plan to let me sleep in on Sunday and make me breakfast in bed. My prayer though is that my Dh would think of me and get me something.
Oh, yes, one day with each of my dc as babies or toddlers, would be heaven....I'd bottle their baby smell and hold them all day.
But, since that's not going to happen, I'll take breakfast made for me, the uninterrupted time browsing for books, lunch OUT, nice quiet drive to the mountains/beach/wherever, lots of picks, no school, lots of coffee, ice cream, favorite snacks, chapter in the 2 books I'm reading for myself, smiling kids, no cleaning, dinner OUT (or made by dh), and handmade cards by the kids.
Now that's not asking too much, right??
