Today was my first Mothers' Day. It was great. I love being a mother!
Being a mom has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am truly blessed.
I take my job as a mother very seriously. I want to do my best to give my best to my child(ren).
Both of my children (I'm including the one in my belly in this statement) were planned and wanted.
I researched the job and continuously do so. I talk to other parents and read other parents' experiences in order to have some insight so I don't go into things blindly.
I am a very opinionated mother. And in my opinion, I am better at being a mother than I have been at doing anything else. (So far).
Being a mother is the one thing that I always knew I wanted to be and do. And I always wanted to be good at it.
It might be wrong for me to think I'm a good mother, and to think that I might be better than other mothers, but isn't that my prerogative? I mean, if you work really hard at being an artist, or being a lawyer and you think you're better than other artists or lawyers, is that so wrong? (Sorry, just trying to justify some nasty things I said in my last post.)
I hope I don't fail my children!
Armondo and I are horrible at keeping gifts a secret. Usually by October, we've given each other our Christmas gifts. Birthdays, we can't help but give too many hints. And I'm just plain good at guessing.
Anyway, for mothers' day I gave a bunch of suggestions, 'cause Armondo didn't even know where to begin. I guessed one of my gifts. I didn't know I would be getting more than one gift, but when I came home last night from getting a movie (Fun with Dick and Jane-darn good), I walked into the bathroom and saw empty bags from Ben Moss (jewelry) and Lush (body products).
"Armondo!? You might want to go into the bathroom" I say.
"huh? What?" He walks into the bathroom and sighs. "STUPID, STUPID, STUPID!!"
It's impossible for us to give gifts secretly! Even when we TRY, we still screw up!
So, this morning, I was allowed to sleep in, and was awoken by the smell of a beautiful breakfast of eggs benny on homemade bread, sausages, fried potatoes, PRAWNS, and a beautiful fruit salad.
For gifts, I got the Timex watch I had wanted, some cute little diamond stud earrings and a massage bar (Which, of course, comes with the unsaid promise of a massage!!) I also got two cards. One from Armondo that said a bunch of mushy cute stuff, and one from Cherry, where Armondo guided her hand to say "It was very nice of you 2 bee my mommy, I love u, Cherry."
We then all had a nap, and went for a 6 km walk. It was a very nice day.
After we got home, we put Cherry down for bed, and Armondo made me a nice dinner of bbq chicken made with homemade bbq sauce and potatoes, veggies and salad.
I am so spoiled!
Happy Mothers' Day to me! And to you!
