With all of the in your face Hallmark commercials its hard to miss the fact that Mother’s Day is Sunday. All over the TV and Internet you’ll find a ton of gift ideas for mom, which is awesome for those of you that are stuck on what to buy for the woman that birthed you. Quite honestly there’s not a gift grand enough to say “Hey Mom I know I tortured you from the inside for 9 months and have driven you crazy for (insert # of years you’ve been alive) years but here goes this really cool card to make up for it.
Most Mother’s Days for my family and I have involved trips to Disneyland or Sea World for as long as I can remember all at my request. This year is not going to be like that. I’m going to tell you what I want for Mother’s Day THIS year. Ready? Here it goes… to be left alone to do what the hell I want. Yes I said it. Everyday I am blessed to spend time with my band of 7 terrors. We eat, watch TV, talk and play together until 11pm.
Truth be told I have a beauty & fashion blog and I haven’t been able to polish my nails for a month!! It’s been almost as long since doing a full face of makeup. I’ve got a ton of reviews that really need to be done. I want to spend Sunday polishing my nails, playing in my make up, watch both Sex and The City movies with a large bottle of Sangria. Now if there’s some food to be made and flowers to be purchased I won’t be mad at it. Then if there is any time left in the day I want all 9 of us to cuddle up in the living room and watch as many Shrek movies as possible until we all pass out.
Then Monday it’s back to business as usual.
Am I wrong for that? What do YOU want for Mother’s Day? Regardless of how we spend the day I’m going to be grateful. I am happy and beyond blessed to have 7 little (and some not so little) people that love me unconditionally, flaws and all. That’s a gift in itself.
