I love my children!
I figured I’d just start with that in case there was any confusion. Of course I love my children, but I am totally at the point where Mother’s Day needs to be a day off. A day of not managing every waking moment of the two kids that call me mom. A day to do anything or nothing and have zero guilt about it. As they get a little older, currently 5 and 7, I do get chunks of time during the days where they are in someone else’s hands, but generally that time is still spent mommin’ in some capacity. But NOT Mother’s Day!
Today we got up early, went to breakfast then church and then, I was out! I did run one errand, but it was probably okay since it was exchanging shoes for myself. Then I went to a movie in the theatre by myself. If you aren’t sure that you’d like it, I highly encourage you to try it. I now love going to movies alone. I ate some stuff that are currently off limits for me. Then I came home and guess what I did?! I watched another movie. I’ve window shopped online. Farted around on Facebook. Basically I have accomplished nothing today. And it’s glorious.
But, tomorrow is Monday and we’ll be back to life as usual. Which is totally okay, my life is really not too shabby. But I will continue to enjoy my day off this way until the tides shift and I’m sad that my kids don’t need or want me all the time. Then I will pull a switch-a-roo on them and require Mother’s Day to be a day they spend with me. It’s Mother’s Day, it will be whatever I want it to be!
