Today was a great day!
It was extra special since it is my first Mother’s Day with Anna here and this is the first year Jack was old enough to know what it was all about. I woke up this morning and the boys weren’t home. It has become a tradition (it’s only 3 years old but a tradition none-the-less) for Alex and Jack to go to the store in the morning on Mother’s Day and come home with a few treats for me. Some may call this last minute, and while that is how this tradition started it is now one that I love. It also seems that we’re not the only ones who do this since Alex tells me that Walmart is full of dads and young kids on Mother’s day morning every year
As soon as they got home Jack ran in excitedly and said “We got you candy!” Then he climbed on my lap and said, “Do you know what today is? It’s Mother’s Day!” and I said “It is?!? What does that mean?” and he said “It means it’s for you!” It was my most special Mother’s Day moment.
My day consisted of relaxation, shopping, reading an US Weekly cover to cover, sleeping kids by 8pm, and I’m about to watch reality TV and eat strawberry cheesecake. Does it get any better?!
Anna started getting some nasal congestion and cold symptoms on Friday night and we got her started on an antibiotic yesterday and she gave me a gift of her own (besides the Tinkerbell card she gave me) which was that she seemed better today! Thus topping off my outpouring of good feelings right now
I want to wish a happy Mother’s Day to every mom out there! I feel so lucky to have the best job in the world. I without a doubt know it is the hardest job in the world but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. To all my CF moms, you are the strongest people I know and I am proud to be in such incredible and loving company. And to my Mom… every ounce of the strength I have is from having you to look up to, I appreciate every single thing you’ve ever done for me, and I love you more than I could ever tell you. And most of all thank you for showering Anna and Jack with your love, we’re all so lucky to have you.
