Since I am a mommy blogger I am obligated to write something on Mother's Day.
I celebrated on Friday by going wine-tasting with my N.E.O. Mom friends in Napa. That was awesome!
Saturday my 4 year old daughter and 5 year old son had dance recitals. That was awesome!
Today, Mother's Day, not so awesome.
My husband has been oncall all weekend, I have barely seen him. My kids were beastly today and it was pouring rain, trapping us inside. I could have gone to the gym but the time I got my act together the daycare was closed. They closed early for Mother's Day.
I dragged everyone to the grocery store, during the brief time Erik was home, so we could have some together time and get out of the house. A husband is almost as bad at the grocery store as 3 kids.
I planned to make an amazing dinner, because I love to cook. But Erik got called back to the hospital, so I cancelled it.
I let the kids play in the mud once it stopped raining, bathed them and put them to bed. Bekah was inconsolable, crying for her father. I ran out of patience. Now I feel like shit for yelling at her and want to wake her up and apologize.
But this Mother's Day is still marginally better than the Mother's Day we took the kids to Hooters for dinner.
Happy Mother's Day.
