What do you really want for Mother's Day?

Saw an article posing this question and answers ranged anywhere from breakfast in bed to a day with no temper tantrums. If I have could have anything, it would be a day and a night alone. Just me doing whatever with no one bothering me and no kids to have to worry about. Peace.

 

Re: What do you really want for Mother's Day?

  • A day where everyone cleans up after themselves without reminders and I can spend it without worrying about doing anything so I can catch up on Downton Abbey.

  • I'm in a wedding Saturday, so Friday night, I have rehearsal and will be with the bride all day Saturday.  I'm dreading seeing what my house will look like when I get home Saturday night.  The best gift he could give me would be a sparkling house... or at least to put all his dishes in the dishwasher and his clothes in the hamper.

  • A full night of sleep.  One where even if i am not on "night duty," i am actually able to sleep.  I have not had a full eight hours of sleep since way before baby.  Even when my husband offers to take over for the night, i wake up at least twice for no discernible reason.

    I just want to sleep in.  I would like to be able to sleep in past 6:30.  I don't want to get out of bed until at least 9am.

    I'm copying this and raising it to one full week of sleep if I'm going to be honest. And someone else to successfully sleep train her so I Can come back to a happy sleeping perfectly baby.

    Honestly, I would love a day that I could just lay on the couch and watch movies all day without being bothered by anyone it anything.

    Just lay my fat butt on the couch with a big batch of popcorn, a frozen crap pizza, and water with lemons and limes in it, that no one is asking for a sip of.

    And a clean house.

  • I would love a day where my 3 year old does what we ask and doesnt have a single temper tantrum.  But since that isn't happening I would love a day to do whatever I want from start to finish. I would wake up when I want get ready with nobody barging in on my shower, go shopping or get a massage, eat a fancy lunch, maybe sit outside and enjoy a nice day. Then go home and enjoy some peace and quiet while I watch my shows and go to bed at 9pm. That sounds like an awesome day.

    Hubby works a ton, including most weekends so I am just excited we get to spend the day together because he is OFF!!! I really would like to get a nice spring/summer bag that I can also use as diaper bag. My current diaper bag is already falling apart and I would like something trendy that is big enough to throw in a few diapers, wipes, and a bottle but that doesnt look like a diaper bag.

    I think I am also going to ask for dinner out in the North End (Italian), and carbo-load on delicious pasta and not feel guilty.

    Minus the part about the 3 year old, I'm right there with you. I'd love a day where I'm not rushing to eat my food or shower. I'd love to get up when I'm ready, not when the dog or DD is waking me up. A day to just do ME would be fabulous!

  • Me, hotel room, spa appointment, tv, room service and NO ONE ELSE.

  • A day alone to lay out by the pool, listen to music, and sip on a nice margarita. Also, not having to cook or clean for a whole day.

  • If I could have anything I would sleep in and then get a nice breakfast in bed.  I would then go to the spa for massage and mani/pedi.  All the while my house would be getting cleaned top to bottom.

  • An entire day to myself from sun up to sun down and money to spend!

     I would wake up and get an iced coffee then go to ikea to get a new duvet cover and random decorating pieces that I don't need, then go get my nails filled, then I would go eat at Panera Bread, then I would go thrift store shopping, then I would go shopping at target and buy random crap that I don't need, then I would come home and drink frozen drinks and browse pinterest while watching greys anatomy until I fall asleep............

    BUT since its MOTHERS DAY I will be spending time with my kiddos, like I should. HA

  • I'm getting a massage chair I found in a garage sale facebook group that costs $30. I told DH it was going to be my mother's day present.  :)

    Edit: Oh, what do I want if I could have anything? I like the hotel room/spa idea. For a whole weekend.

  • A day off without MH or LO or the stupid dog. I take the dog and the baby to my parents house without MH often, and so he gets to sleep in and not have anyone else there. I want that. Desperately.
