I truly don't need a day in my honor. BUT....since someone has placed this special day upon me.. I try to enjoy it!
Mothers day 2010 was great. My first one as a mom of 3 kids!!! While breakfast in bed may appeal to some...for me, I headed out for a 9 mile run and came home to fresh coffee and an egg white omelet...oh, and a clean kitchen. HEAVEN!
Then came the gifts...handmade cards by the one and only Cole. Again, only a picture of me and Cole drawn on it...no twins. No daddy. Can we say "mommy time" needed? Tim purchased a lovely dumbell rack for my home gym. Before you "boo" at him...keep in mind that I did ask for one and I did squeal when I unwrapped it. Now my dumbells are all nicely lined up from lightest to heaviest in their nice little home.. off the floor!
I know I'm sad... (PS: last years gift was a weighted vest that I wear when I treadmill)
The best gift from my hubby though.....he managed to sleep train the twins last week. 7-7 my friends with NO FEEDS! Both boys! Again, HEAVEN.
He sent Cole and I into the basement for bed and he pushed through the crying and comforting at all hours in the night for 3 nights. By Sunday, I was able to move back upstairs and sleep a full 9 hours straight. Now THAT is the best gift ever...no?
We had brunch with my parents, my bro & new wife Tammy and my sister and her new fiancee (YES she is getting married in Sept...when it rains it pours flippin weddings around here!)
I guess the upside to a funeral is that is does bring the living together. In this case my mom was able to have all her kids around her during such a tough time. We all found our smiles that day.
Hope yours was a special one!
