I am surrounded by many wonderful mothers.
For one, my Mom, who in my opinion is the best mom of all.
I am also surrounded by two precious miracles that I call my own.
They, of course, made all these cute things at school that they gave me.
I loved them all.
I knew that the Jehovah's Witness was not going to celebrate this holiday.
If you can remember, Ryan (the Jehovah's Witness) gave up holidays a few years back. It is a total joke that he converted but I like it.
Anyway, like I said, I knew that he was not going to celebrate this holiday.
I was right.
But, deep down in my heart there is always hope that he will.
Caroline: "What do you want for Mother's Day?"
Me: "Tomorrow when you and Bug wake up, go wake up Daddy. Don't wake me up. Tell your Dad you want Bojangles for breakfast. Bring me home a black coffee. I will sleep late and then sip my coffee in bed."
Caroline (somewhat confused): "Coffee? Ok."
Fast forward a little.
3am Sunday morning.
Caroline comes into my room.
Wakes me. Needs drink.
I get her water.
She throws a fit.
I have to lay down in her bed with her to go back to sleep.
I slept TERRIBLE.
Emma starts screaming and running through the house looking for me.
I ignore her (I am a responsible parent like that).
She finally finds me, plops down on my head and goes back to sleep.
Both kids are awake.
"Mom, I want breakfast."
"Remember, go tell your Dad."
I fall back asleep (because I am a responsible parent like that).
A few minutes later.
"MOM! EMMA JUST SPILLED DRINK EVERYWHEREEEEE!"
Mother of all things Holy.
Happy Mother's Day to me!
The Jehovah's Witness slept through it all.
Like a baby.
I then took two children to Walmart to buy tulips. I was going to buy them earlier but I was scared I would kill them so, I waited.
Little did I know that I would buy broken tulips with mold on them. Damn.
The girls had HotCakes for breakfast.
I had a coffee.
The Jehovah's Witness slept.
Until almost 11am.
Happy Mother's Day Jehovah's Witness!
I didn't even get a Happy Baby Mama's Day from him.
I still love him though. ;-)
