How was your Mothers Day? Did it meet your expectations? I’m seriously constantly let down because of my ridiculously high expectations. I have a fantasy in my head of how the day will plan out, maybe created by watching too many tv commercials. You know the ones, with the fluffy slippers and the breakfast in bed, the huge loving cuddles, the earrings and chocolates and home made cards? Yeah I actually thought that’s what I was getting, how my day would go. Ha, fool me!
How many fights were there between the three kids today I can’t count. An entire day (without hubby) with the kids screaming at each other. Finally I yelled at them ‘it’s mothers day, you’re meant to just be nice for this one day’! Well that worked for about 15 minutes!
They really weren’t that bad, I think I just had unrealistic expectations. I really thought that I could stay in bed all day and read my new mothers day book. But of course ignoring my children just makes them crazier.
I really got sucked in this year. Next year I will lower my expectations, ignore what society and media portray as what Mothers Day should look like and just enjoy the day like any other with my gorgeous family and take what the day brings with gratitude.
