It really is the little things that make a day like Mother's Day special.
J made waffles for breakfast, G took a three hour nap while I finally went through all of my clothes, and C played (relatively) quietly and stayed dry in underwear all morning! I got rid of bags and bags of clothes that don't fit me anymore (and never will again) and put away my maternity clothes. Its amazing a) how much clothing I was holding onto "just in case" it fit me again and b) how long its been since I've bought clothes for myself. About five years as far as J and I can figure.
In the afternoon, we grabbed Five Guys for lunch (YUM!) and then hit up Ross and TJ Maxx so I could find some summer clothes that actually fit me without breaking the bank. We had planned for C to take a nap on the hour drive to the shopping center, but no dice. Despite that, he walked around both stores (and a few others) and behaved SO well! And to boot, G napped most of the afternoon and stayed in the same spit up free outfit all day.
Yummy food, shopping, and well behaved kids. Now that's a Mother's Day. :-)
I hope all of the special women out there - the Moms, Moms-to-be, Grandmothers, Aunts, Godmothers, and Friends; the women who touch the lives of children every day - had a wonderful day.
