Being Spoiled on Mom's Day!
I had to wait for it but I got to eat breakfast in bed! Of course that's not an unusual thing for me since my darling hubby likes to surprise me with breakfast in bed on Sunday Mornings....most of the time!
This morning I had to wait because he wasn't up as early as usual on a sunday morn, that might be because I was lying on top of him.....with my clothes on...get your mind out of the gutter! hahaha....I was cajoling him to get up and he likes when I lie on top of him so that was the best method I could use!
Eventually I got coffee, fruits - watermelon and papaw and fried egg on wholewheat toast with a slice of tomato - YUM! We had the morning to ourselves with out our six year old in between us because she had a sleepover and is still not home yet. [I miss the little dumplin!]
I then did my toes and fingers....not a full fledged mani and pedi but being able to just sit and paint my fingers and toes...priceless! Later I plan to do my hair and other not mentionables...my doting on myself time! All women need to do that for themselves, having someone else do it for you is even better, but as that's not possible...it is good to do that for me!
Empty Nest - I'm too young for this feeling!
My little one as I mentioned went to a sleepover, her friend invited her and two others to a birthday sleepover. She was happy to go but at the same time she didn't want to go. She wanted me to be there too! She was worried that she wouldn't like it and kept telling me she would miss me. I told her she would be fine and reassured her how much I will miss her too! I asked her if she wanted to take her teddy bear, her response, "NO, they might think I'm a baby!" My baby is growing up!
It felt strange being without her all day yesterday! Strange and wonderful at the same time! I had made plans to do some self indulgent things that I don't get to do too often, window shop and get lost in my favorite stores....
Men...can't live without them...sometimes you just want to kill them!
....my son and hubby had other plans however! They wanted to tag along! I know how they get and I know that somehow they will ruin my afternoon but I gave in, repeating everything I was going to do, errands, going to the library, window shopping......taking a long time....men hate to shop and they hate to wait!
That didn't sway them! In the middle of errands, sure enough...I had words with my hubby.....yes, he wanted to do his thing, I wanted to do mine...so I decided to do what every wife, mother, girlfriend does...give in and just let the day play itself out! Aren't we women great?!
Then I just did what every other woman would do....and did what I wanted to do anyway!LOL! That's what marriage is all about, give and take!
Who ever thought about a day just for us moms....
I know, I know, the retailers did! We're talking flowers, cards, restaurants, jewellery, whatever you can think of...yes, the retailers did it! But I'm sure you mom's aren't complaining though! You all deserve everything and more!
Adn I'm not complaining either! I didn't make out like a bandit with material things...my gifts were more tangible and what I personally like...breakfast, dinner later, my car got spruced up...thanks honey! Did I forget to mention my foot massage.....and I've been warned not to do anything today...yes...a day just for me and I'm loving it!
