Mother's Day is this Sunday and I'm not going to lie. I just want to spend some time by myself. I am not feeling the "I want to be alone but I know I should be with my kids so I'm going to spend the day with them allthewhile wishing I was alone" thing. No guilt for this mama.
I love and adore my kids. I cherish and value our family time. But I am with them all the fricking time. Do you want to do something special for me? Yes? Then draw me a picture, tell me you love me, then tell me to not come back home until after baths are given and it's time to tuck you in and give you a kiss goodnight. That's the best gift I could get.
If you can't conceive of spending Mother's Day without your children then good for you, but please don't judge me for wanting that to be my one day off.
What are you hoping to receive?
