I am a mom.
And today is Mothers’ Day.
I did a whole lot of nothing today, and even got to sleep in for an hour. I made a delicious breakfast for my kids and Chef, I hung out and read a book that wasn’t on child development or midwifery. I painted my nails and Chuck’s nails. Nonnie (Chef’s grandma) gave me some money and told me to spend it on something shiny or fun and not on the kids.
I might even give myself a pedicure before bed.
All in all, I got to spend Mothers’ Day with the reasons I am a mother, and I got to hang out with some of my favorite moms.
I hope you celebrated your momma or were feted by your momma-making offspring in some shiny/glittery/fancy way today, because all moms deserve at least a big fat hug and a “thanks for raising/birthing/rescuing me.”
Or in Chuck’s case, “thanks for letting me use your stupidly large stash of makeup to paint my face like a superhero princess”.
