The Mother’s Day posts are floating around already nudging at the men as to what “moms really want for Mother’s Day” all suggesting the same thing. I want to bathe and use the bathroom alone, not cook, to sleep in, and the list keeps going. But excuse me if I may, this is NOT what I want for Mother’s Day. Well what in the hell do you want if not all of that? Let me tell you.
PIN IT!I WANT to snuggle my kids in bed in the morning. Though I don’t like waking up early, I would rather snuggle my kids to pieces than lock them out of the room.
I WANT to cook a big breakfast for everyone. I want to see all of their happy faces chowing down in appreciate of all their favorite foods I just made them.
I WANT my kids bothering me while I’m in the shower so we can be silly through the shower curtain while making silly faces and playing peek-a-boo.
I WANT “generic” flowers…that we pick together outside into a big bouquet even with the weeds and grass pieces that are inevitably going to make it into the bunch because they think they’re flowers.
I WANT my kids to interrupt me while I’m on the computer or reading a book so that we can go to the park and play.
PIN IT!Why do I want all of these things? Because its MOTHER’S DAY. Its NOT my birthday. If I wanted time to myself and gifts and everything thing else then it would be my birthday. On Mother’s Day I want to be showered in my everyday mischief of being a mom of two boys. I don’t want to spend time all by myself because THEY are who and what made me a mother not myself. So for all of those posts out there suggesting otherwise, wrong. Its not for me. My dirty, smiling, privacy invading boys are what I want.
