Mother’s Day

Hubby asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day.  That was a good question. What did I want?? I am not that kind of person that can go out and spend money on herself. I feel bad when I do, because there is always something else that we may need that is more important. I told hubby that we needed diapers and he said o.k. but what do I want for my day.

I remembered a couple of years ago, he and Oldest went out and bought me some cards, a balloon, and a huge bouquet of red roses. The thought was sweet, and I adore red roses, but I told him he shouldn’t have spent the money on flowers. I was pregnant with L, so it could have been the hormones talking, but I just couldn’t get over the money spent on something that was going to die. I know, I am awful.

So I  thought about it for a little while yesterday, then I remembered the game we had been wanting since Christmas, The Evil Within. We both love scary video games, so this would be something we both would enjoy. I told him and he said that he was thinking about that too. After dinner we headed to the game store and got a great surprise. It was actually marked down from 60 to 30 dollars.  Yes! Score!!

Here is to all the mommy’s, old and new. Hoping you enjoy your day no matter how you celebrate it or what you do!! 😉

This is actually a few days too late, but I forgot all about posting it till now. 🙂

Friday was not a very fun day. My van had a leak,  and hubby didn’t feel well enough to fix it. He was in the house all day. Little L, once again, decided she didn’t need a stinking nap, even though she was wide awake from 4 to almost 6 a.m. that morning. See how my day was going? L was hanging out with her dad, so I took a chance and even told him I was going to sneak off to use the computer, which is always being held hostage in the Cave of Oldest! I get to the computer, first I have to check her school work and do attendance and see what is in store for the next week. Now that I did that, I went on to do what I wanted to do. Within a matter of seconds, I hear, “Where’s your mommy at?” Really! I hadn’t been away for more then 10 minutes tops. Then my hubby opens the door, which is not a good move. L gets into everything in the Cave. We yell, we argue, but will not take her out. Oldest gets up and leaves, but L stays. Why not right? It’s free for all time! The only way to get her out is to leave the room also.

Oldest does it to me too. It never fails, just when I think I may get a few moments of quiet, I hear, “Take it to Mommy.” Over and over. This makes for a very annoyed mommy by the time she finds out what the little monster sweetheart has in her hands. “Take what to mommy?” I will eventually say. But I am actually saying I know, why don’t you take it to daddy. He is sitting right there. Why is it always Mommy?

Then there is bathroom time. Everyone gets plenty of privacy but…you guessed it…me. I will even announce that I am going to use the bathroom and it’s only a matter of minutes before one of them are poking their heads in to see if I am done. Because no one can change a diaper or make any kind of food around here other then Dear Ole Mom.

Oldest has a bad habit of saying Mom over and over again until I look at her, so she can tell me something. Even if I say “What?” She still wants me to look at her. I have told her many times that I am going to change my name. She thinks it would be fun to guess the new one. *SMH*

To hear the word Mom, over and over, can get a bit overwhelming and frustrating. With the upcoming day of all days, please kids, I am begging, give your old mom a break and some peace and quiet. Before she loses her mind and goes totally nuts.
