What a great day!
Mother's Day was so awesome and my husband and kids were so great. They do Mother's Day so wonderful. Breakfast in the morning, spoiling all day long, and pizza and movies in the evening.
As Moms, we don't expect reward for taking care of our kids and making the best life possible for them. The joy and need comes naturally to us...like breathing, walking, and talking. It's what we're suppose to do...and doing it completes us as a person.
But it is nice when your family shows appreciation for the work involved in being a Mommy. When they show what you mean to them. As the kids grow up, it becomes harder to define what part we play in their lives anymore. That visual slice becomes smaller and smaller. So when the teenagers give those extra hugs, kisses, laughter, and smiles on Mommy's Day to show that I still am an important part in their hearts, it means a lot.
And the little boys were so excited, this was the first year they fully participated in the festivities. They loved it so much they didn't want it to end.
Super Wy laid in my lap after nap, playing with my hand and said, "I wish everyday was Mommy's Day."
...to me, everyday IS Mommy's Day and I wouldn't have it any other way.
