Historically, Mother's Day has not been a stellar day around here (I'll also add my birthday in here too). It's too much pressure for my boys. They try, oh they try, not to fight and whine, but, it doesn't work and we usually end the day tired and worn out from the stress of it all.
As my kids grow, I realize that Mother's Day isn't important to me at all. It never really was. Being a mom is about raising children to be polite and considerate, loving and kind. Compassionate towards others. Gentle.
My Mother's Day occurs when:
I receive compliments about my boys,
there's laughter in our house,
they make awesome plays in baseball,
I see them help a friend,
and help each other.
My Mother's Day is when:
they help around the house(and they weren't asked),
school mornings go smoothly,
they read and learn,
we eat as a family,
and all are home and quiet.
My Mother's Day is:
having the boys sit with me
and we just
Gentle teasing about girls,
Still getting a hug and kiss when not looking.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Enjoy your weekend!
