What do you want for Mother’s Day?
I want to be left alone. Yes, that does sound selfish, and it is… a little bit, but it’s the truth. What I need though…is a day, a day where I’m not needed. A day to myself, to do whatever I want. Even if that means sleeping until noon, not brushing my teeth, and eating cupcakes for dinner. I want to pee without having a conversation through the door, or better yet… without my kids watching me because they have to be in there with me. I want to grab a snack without having to sneak it or share it. I want to watch T.V., and not only watch it, but hear it. I don’t need to be taken out for dinner. That is not relaxing at all.
“Where’s my food?”
“I want what she has.”
“I need to go potty.”
“She’s kicking me.”
“Can I have a bite?”
“I’m not hungry.”
Please…. leave me alone! I love you all, but go!
I feel guilty saying that I want to be left alone, it sounds as if I don’t love my children, which is not the case at all.
For me, Mother’s Day has always been about the kids though. “What can we do that they’d enjoy?” I know they feel good when they make something for me, get me a gift, or take me out. Which is why I will sit back, smile, and accept everything that comes my way on Mother’s Day like I do every year. Maybe that makes me a good mom. Maybe that makes me an idiot.
To all the mom’s out there who make sacrifices day in and day out, you guys rock!
Happy Mother’s Day!
If you know anyone that can relate, please share this post, and give them a hug, or some wine…or Vodka. Yeah, screw the hug, wine and Vodka makes more sense.
