It’s the one day of the year when we are supposed to sleep in, be waited on and get pampered. But let’s be honest, none of that is probably happening. The kids will come into the room, jump on your bed, and expect breakfast and whatever your normal Sunday routine is!
I have been feeling very emo lately if I am being honest with you. Speaking to a co-worker recently who has a friend that has spent thousands of dollars on IVF and surrogacy to have a baby, and all of it not produce any results, put a lot in perspective for me. There are so many women in the world trying to have children and not be able to for a variety of reasons. And I have the nerve to complain about these two healthy boys? They are the reason I have this little pudge I don’t work hard enough to get rid of, and the amazing tiger stripes all over my stomach. I am so proud to be a Mom, it gives my life purpose, motivation, and power! This weekend instead of running from my responsibilities and
wanting, needing to take the day off, I am looking forward to spending quality time and making more memories with the boys. I have taken the weekend off from work and booked a staycation at one of the many resorts in our area. Y’all need to holla at Groupon for the steals! I have a weekend planned of getting wet in the chlorine-filled pool and slides, making crafts, attending a wine tasting, and hopefully going to the spa! It’s a one-stop shop for the entire family. The kids will probably make me spends insane amounts of money in the arcade, and I won’t even mind. Since hubby will be at work, I can get what I want (some relaxation), and the kids can have a blast as well.
I realize that as the boys get older they will not want to spend time with Mom, so while I still have the love and affection of my little guys, let me love them up. The grind and chasing a dream while simultaneously being a Mother can be very hectic and draining. I have been learning to let things go be still. Listening to the boys, watching them mature before my eyes and trying to be a Mom that sets boundaries, but wants them to know they can talk to me about anything, have been my priority as of late. So here’s to my chic moms all over the world. If you are not able to have some much-needed solitude this weekend, cherish this time with the kiddos. We are blessed to be Moms, and every second we are with our children counts!
