The week before last was Spring Break around here, which meant that my two kids were off from school while my husband remained at work. (You catch my drift?) The night before my children were to return to school from break, my son came down with a horrid stomach virus. One week with two offspring by my side was followed by another week with one who remained home. Throw in a trip to the hospital for IV, night terrors and the consecutive waking of offspring number two (all while working from home) and you have one mommy who knows exactly what she wants for Mother’s Day.
This is my B!tch-fest and I know you each have yours. Are we allowed to complain? Does complaining of sheer exhaustion and the desire for two kids to be in school make me a bad mom? HELL NO!!! It makes me, like most, yearn for the one gift that the words “I love you Mom!” written in crayon font, simply cannot offer. And that, my friends, is the GIFT OF TIME!
So if it’s time that we’re after this Mother’s Day, let’s take it! How will we achieve the gift of TIME?
What I want for Mother’s Day this year is TIME. It’s the best gift we can give to ourselves and in turn, to our families. The gift of TIME may make us better Mothers (I know… hard to imagine) and for some, better lovers. (Wink-wink!). Have a wonderful Mother’s Day because you, WE, deserve it!
