February 2012 Moms

Sooooooo how was it???

My first mother's day sucked. Mister didn't understand the concept of "My Day". I still had PPD and Timothy was a typical colicky 2.5 month old. It was a rough day with lots of tears even though I was excited to celebrate the day.

But this year was FABULOUS. I didn't change a SINGLE diaper all day. And my Kid pooped 3 times (which is alot). My little boy was so good all day and DH did WHATEVER I told him to do!

Re: Sooooooo how was it???

  • DH let me sleep in and DS&DH brought me breakfast in bed.  They served the breakfast on DS's highchair tray because he couldn't find the platter Smile.  I opened presents (picture, crossword DH made online, a book I've been wanting and flowers) and then DS smashed his hand into the middle of my plate and the food went everywhere!   DH had leftovers in the kitchen so we plated it and went outside on the deck.  I put my plate on the deck rail and it fell over the side.  Then, it was time for me to go to work for the day. It's the thought that counts!

     

     

  • It was awesome! Slept in, took a run, drank coffee on the deck and went to lunch with our family, my parents, and my best friend's whole family. H and Austin got me flowers, a necklace and a gift certificate for a message. I'm a lucky girl!

  • It was a typical weekend around here except we saw the ILs, and I went over to see my mom. I asked DH not to buy me anything. I don't think anyone did anything for me, but I don't care. Our typical weekends are perfect, so why do something different? I'm not a fan of these Hallmark holidays, so for me, anything we can do to pretend the hoopla around the day doesn't exist is good enough for me.

  • DH let me sleep in and later I took a nap. He and Connor got me a card. I know it sounds simple, but last year they did nothing so this was an improvement and I appreciated it.

    Our nanny is an angel. She and Connor made a paving stone for the yard with Connor's hand and foot prints, she helped him color a picture for me, and since her dad is a photographer, she had him do a photo schoot of Connor and gave me a framed print and digital copies of the other 200 pictures they took! I'm so thankful for her.

    Mine was good! Smile

    Hubs woke me up with cinnamon rolls and a beautiful mother's necklace. Aria slept in an extra hour! We went to church and then lunch at my Mamaw's. After that, we came home and put Aria down for a nap, and hubs left to go golfing. Aria took a 4 hour nap, and so did I! It was glorious to get to take a nap alone! 

    Aria was such a doll all day, happy and smiley, and she gave tons of kisses. Hubs was great too... even down to going golfing. All I wanted was to take a nap in peace, and I got it! Smile

  • I will hold back the snark on this one - but it is there!

    Mother's Day was a typical Sunday at my house - church, groceries and lunch out with DH and LO.  The only difference is that I got some cards (Allison "signed" hers) and we went to dinner with my family.

    I did get to sleep in a little, but only because Allison did too.

  • Overall, I had a good day with my family!

    But I was pissed that I got a "Happy Mother's Day" text from my exH but Ian's dad said nothing!  I'll keep the rest of my bitterness to myself! :)

    Look it's MY Day.  That's how it works in my family.  He will get his Day and I'll do whatever he likes.   It's not like I asked him to build a shrine in my honor.  It was more like "Can you dress the baby?", etc.   If that's not how you guys work, good for you.  But what does it matter to you?

    Mine was nice BUT my first was way better! H gave me flowers and a card and the BEST part is he wrote me poem from DS and had his handprint at the bottom of the poem, it's titled "Mommy's Hand". I asked him halfway through the day where he downloaded the poem from and he was so offended, haha! He replied downloaded? I wrote that! I then sobbed like a baby it was so heartfelt. My H is an emotional guy but not a mushy guy so I was super shocked! My MIL gave me flowers as well, my SILs gave me cards. We had brunch with my inlaws and a mini impromptu BBQ at home for dinner. I didn't get to see my mom though which kind of stunk but she is sick and I totally appreciated her not sharing with us!

    And grandmas that did get their gifts from DS totally LOVED them, which made me very happy!

  • My first mother's day involved discovering our water heater leak by getting smacked with cold water in the shower.

    This year DH tried so hard.  He made me breakfast, smoked ribs for dinner, and got stuck cleaning our gutters which we'd discovered the day before were full of spring gunk.  He worked his tail off.  Sadly DD was in the grumpiest, Mama-only mood she's been in for a while.  By the end of the day DH and I just flopped onto the couch totally worn out.

    It made me really grateful for my mom taking care of me through similar grumpy days!

  • I really don't want much for Mother's Day, just to acknowledge it. DH totally forgot. He slept in until 10 and didn't say anything about the day unt he heard it on tv that it was Mother's Day, that was at noon. When he realized it he told my DS to tell me happy Mother's Day and that I was the best mom ever. Very sweet but DS is at the age where he finally gets it, and I think if DH would have examined to him what the day is and the meaning behind it that DS would have been able to say those things on his own. Daisy was a sweet little snuggler all day, shes teething so i tjink she just wanted some extra love! The rest of the day was the same as it always is. I can't complain about having family time all day.

    Beats me. She must have known it was a special occasion! She's a really great sleeper in general though.

  • My first mother's day, we went out for brunch, but the time we went out was bad, DD cried through the whole thing, and I was a wreck when I got home.

    This mother's day, DD came home with a cold on Friday, which DH and I both promptly became ill with on Mother's day... so I'm not having much luck with this mother's day thing.... Although, DH did make me a nice bath to soak in so I could breathe again.

    haha

    I didn't have to change a diaper all day and I got to take a real, uninterrupted, in my bed nap!!! Considering I got 3.5 hours of sleep the night before this was the best gift ever. We did brunch too which was wonderful but I've never been more excited for a nap!

  • DH got up with DD and let me sleep in an extra hour. He made me breakfast and we had a "picnic" on the living room floor (DD loved not being in her high chair). We went to lunch at a new place downtown, then came home and I lounged on the couch and watched Harry Potter while DD napped and DH cleaned. I didn't change a single diaper, clean up, or cook a meal... Just what I asked for!

  • It was a lot better than I thought. DH usually fails at planning things, but he surprised me with lunch and a new Vera Bradley diaper bag!

  • I had a good Mother's Day this year.  I woke up and went to breakfast with my mom.  While I was gone, DH worked with DD on saying Happy Mama's Day- she did pretty good when I got home.  They each gave me a card- DD "signed" her name on one.  DH gave me a spa certificate.  We then had a late lunch and went shopping.  We also stopped and got my free ice cream sundae at Michael's.  Then, I did bubbles with DD in the front yard.

     

    All in all, it was a good day!

  • I had a great Mother's Day with my mom while DH was back at home studying. We went out for brunch at an expensive resort in Santa Barbara (CA), briefly went to the beach, went back to my mom's and net structure to keep birds out of my mom's blueberry bushes, did a little shopping, and then got dessert! I couldn't have asked for a better Mother's Day, even if Nat was still my responsibility. We just had so much fun!

  • All the moms got chocolate at church. We went out to lunch and literally got ripped off (manager charged our card more than he was supposed to). Then I got my haircut fixed that I had gotten the day before and the lady had done a crappy job on. DD napped and then we went to the park for a little bit and got milkshakes at Sonic. It was an ok day I guess.  I still changed all the diapers, did almost all the feeding, etc as always and DH didn't do a card or letter or anything. He did say some really sweet stuff to me while we were at the park that was Mother's Day related so that was nice. 

    I don't remember how the day went last year, I'm sure it wasn't great bc of her age and how she was back then.

  • It was kind of "bleh".  I was post- call and slept during the morning.  Then in the afternoon DH had to go to work, so I took DD and bought her some tennis shoes.  Then we went out to eat.  DH got me a card and picked up some flowers from Publix.  Other than the card, it wasn't much different that a typical postcall day for me.

  • I got to sleep in and take a nap.  DH also took over all diaper and bathroom duty (with our 3.5 year old). This is what we do every year for each other :)  DH also had a card that both the kids signed.  We just hung out all day nothing else going on.
