After my last post about a Meaningful Mother’s Day jolted my husband into asking what I want for that special day –the one and only day that honors moms who spend every single day doing things for others– I got to thinking, what do I want?
Although I researched and wrote about meaningful experiences, I’ve realized here is what I REALLY want:
- to wake up without someone kicking, climbing on, or poking me (even if she is my adorable 2-year old)
- to not have to decide, negotiate, beg, and dress at least 3 people
- to not have to plan, prepare or clean-up a meal
- to not pick-up strewn toys (and still have a tidy house)
- to spend time with my family without having to brainstorm, organize and execute our activities, and worry if everyone’s having fun
- to be able to go for run, a yoga class; or what ever I want without feeling like I’m escaping Alcatraz
- to not go for a run if I don’t want and instead sit on my ass the entire day and finish reading the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.
Now that’s a good Mother’s Day
