A magical mother's day
......so it started out with flaky croissants in bed, homemade raspberry jam, coffee with steamed milk and a variety of exotic fruit, served by three adorable, sparkling clean children with smiles on their faces and beautiful gifts given with love. I was reveling in my perfect life when ZAP this lovely dream disappeared and reality took it's place. Yes, prince to frog, shiny coach to pumpkin, slipper to serviceable shoe--ugh. The hot mug of sweet tea was how the day started and it was accompanied by a little girl and a grown man who already own huge areas of my heart. Breakfast was a normal Sunday morning affair, not too fancy, not too plain--just right, as Goldilocks would determine. After our morning events, the boys were to prepare lunch with their dad and I was to have the preparation time off. There was an above average amount of grumbling, sassing, crabbing and general discontent. Children were given a stern talking to, some even sent to their room in search of a better outlook. 'It's not fair that mom doesn't have to do anything, it's always us doing everything'--u know the drill. It pretty much continued throughout the whole day and bedtime was a welcome moment. I jokingly said that I would put them on ebay during the night and said that I'd even pay for pickup. Of course that is not true but I guess maybe next year could be different. Worse? At least I was looking forward to Monday for once :) Hope you had a magical mother's day too.
