happy mother's day











to all the moms out there in the trenches everyday--happy mother's day! yes, it might be a Hallmark, manufactured holiday, but so what. . . we moms need a holiday all our own cause dammit we work hard.

i got to sleep in today. PAST 7am. for real. it was AWESOME. when i awoke, hubby and son had cleaned up the entire 1st floor from a family gathering we'd had the day before. they even did all the dishes. again, AWEsome. but it gets better. then they sat me down, brought me coffee and made me breakfast. i'll say it again. they, the 2 boys in the house, one who is not yet 4 and the other who can barely boil water (sorry hubs, but you know it's true) actually cooked me blueberry pancakes, scrambled eggs and fruit salad. yes. it was the awesomeEST. they only asked my help with the pancake recipe twice. and they served it outside on my new picnic table. it was lovely. just lovely. i felt like a lucky mom today.

i hope you had an equally lovely day. moms, i salute you.

How sweet!!! I'm glad you had such a great Mom's Day! I also got to sleep in...bliss!! And my husband cooked dinner. We were going to eat on the picnic table, but the wind was whipping soooo strongly. Have a good rest of the week :-)

Well my wife did sleep late and came downstairs to beef stock starting on the stove and a rasberry-almond Danish in the oven, which was then glazed in lime marmalade.

However it had nothing to do with Mother's Day. We also ignore Father's Day around here.
