Fun for me is pretty simple, hanging with my kids with minimal arguing & whining.
So, for Mother’s Day, I just like to relax.
It all started with breakfast in bed. With a little help from Auntie Mona, the boys made all my favorites: bacon, egg & cheese bagel, fresh fruit, and a homemade smoothie.
I remember growing up and always feeling bad because I couldn’t afford fine jewelry and luxurious clothes for my mom. She always said it was the crafts I made that meant the most. I thought she was just lying to make me feel better.
As a mom, I get it.
It truly is the gifts from the heart that made my day complete.
The boys also picked out a couple cute necklaces for me that I will always think of them when I wear.
Next up, Mother’s Day brunch.
I bought the boys new matching outfits. This gesture let them know that it was a special occasion.
I also bought myself a new dress, not because I wanted to splurge, but because everything I own is either short and fitted or gym wear. Had to get something kiddie approved.
Last year, Mo and I went on a Mother’s Day date. B was too young, so it was just the 2 of us. It was really special. This year, B came along for the fun.
Mo saved up his allowance and birthday money to foot the bill, tip included! The entire meal he kept concentrating on his 1 line he waited all afternoon to say, “CHECK PLEASE“. lol
It’s such a great experience to teach the boys restaurant ettiquette as well as how to act with a lady.
We’re already looking forward to next year.
