"Mommy... What do you want for Mother's Day? I want to get you whatever you want!" Now this I can see working in my benefit!
Isn't my son awesome?! These statements just melt my heart. He's such a sweet kid! I thought about it, or at least pretended to think about it. "Sleep", I said. He seemed to be satisfied by this. He even replied "Okay, I'm going to let you sleep as looooonnnggg as you want!" (I knew he was my favourite son for a reason!)
To be honest, I didn't put much thought into our little conversation for the rest of the day. The next morning however, I realized that my son had really meant what he said and was determined to keep his commitment. I heard the feet across the kitchen floor above me, down the stairs and across the (what will end up as) Star Wars room. Check out my about page, I'm a secret nerd. The door creaks open and I hear whispered very quietly...
"Mommy, is it Mother's Day?"
"Mrrrrggggghhh, No," I reply. I meant it when I posted that I hated to wake up!
"Oh good!!," big loud voice, bouncing, bounding steps- he comes over to my side of the bed, "Can you put you tube on the computer?"
UUuuuuuuugggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh...... "Yeah Bud, I can put you tube on." (Disclaimer: We are responsible parents and have rules. He can't watch just anything.) I slowly drag myself out of bed and half-sleep walk up to the kitchen table. I check the time... 6:39. At least tomorrow I can sleep in.
Jokes on me though, I have to get up early to help in the nursery at church!
What's your favourite Mother's Day memory?
You know the saying, the grass is always greener on the other side? This is my attempt to find greener grass right where I am in my life.
BTW - I'm the one on the right, just in case you didn't already know that.
