My Best Mother's Day Thus Far
Mother's Day is approaching fast (husbands and children: make sure you are prepared!!) and I am excited to have a day to sit around and do nothing (lol, like that would ever happen). Really though, I am looking forward to adding another great Mother's Day to the ones I have had so far.
My husband and I have been married just shy of 12 years but we waited almost 10 years before starting our family. My daughter is now two so this will only be my third Mother's Day.
My first Mother's day, my daughter was only 3 months so she really did not understand what was going on but thanks to my wonderful husband he made it special and memorable. My daughter (with his assistance) colored me a card and she (with my husbands money! lol) got me a beautiful pendant with her birthstone in it. Then we went over to my mother's for an afternoon BBQ.
Last year was also nice and I got to spend the entire day with just my husband and our daughter (my mom was working so we celebrated with her the following weekend). We had a nice family day together and they got me a card and flowers. Wiggle Bean was a little over a year old but I think that she still did not understand that it was a special day for mommy.
This year I am really looking forward to Mother's Day because Wiggle Bean is a little older and I think she will understand what the day means. I have no idea what they have planned for the day but I am sure it will include a card, I should leave them a link to some of the really adorable Mother's Day cards available at Tiny Prints.
While my first Mother's Day will always hold a dear place in my heart, I am sure that this year's Mother's Day will be the best.
Just remember that even if your Mother's Day day does not go exactly as planned, you are a mother every day so every day you are loved by your child is Mother's Day and that is always the best!
