Mother's Day

Mother's Day was so nice and now it's Monday and back to reality.  Oh how I wish every day could be Mother's Day orrr at least once a week.  Sleeping in, waking up to a home cooked breakfast by my minis, handed my chores or work to be done..catered to all day.  Now that's a permanent life I could get used to ;)

I usually host Mother's Day every year at my house, which normally involves cooking out and swimming in the pool with all the family.  This year it occurred to me that its my Mother's Day tooo! So remind me again why I need to do all the grocery shopping and cooking and preparing for this alone? haha  I told Steve that this Mother's Day I wanted to go shopping at Target alone and wanted him to take care of the dinner with my brother.  

So, Saturday I took off aloneeee to target and shopped and browsed all the isles and it was glorious!  I picked up my mom's Mother's Day presents and then picked up a new bathing suit and some other things for our beach trip next week.  I seriously think I forgot what it felt like to walk into a store alone. Any store!  That night Steve went and got all the groceries for the next day.

Sunday I slept in until 8:15.  Would have tried to make that last a little longer but, church.  I woke up to the girls cooking me pancakes.  Jolie was stirring batter and Brynn was drawing me roses on my pancakes with icing :)  Everyone got dressed and we headed off to church and even got a nice Mother's Day brunch there!

After we got home, Jolie took a long nap while Steve and Brynn prepped all the food.  They were so cute together in the kitchen and she helped him every step of the way.  Around 2 everyone came over, swimming, grilling and drinks commenced.  It was so nice and relaxing to not be in charge.  My mom and I just plopped our self down with a nice corona and watched the girls swim.

I was pretty proud of Steve's spread.  He did such a good job!

I seriously do not know how this is my 4th Mother's Day already!  It feels like just yesterday this was the part of my life that I was dreaming about, and now here I am.  I waited my whole life for this.  I always wanted to be a wife and mommy, more than any career or job really.  If you ever asked me as a child what I wanted to be when I grow up ..."a mommy" was my answer.  Even more so, I dreamed of all the girl babies...girls I could play dress up with and buy all the hair bows.  I am so thankful that I get to spend all my days at home with them making memories day in and day out.  God definitely made me to be a mama, not just in the the perfectly dressed up, perfect lighting professional photo moments...but in all of the messy moments too.  Like tantrums, and wondering how they can destroy a room in 5 seconds flat or how they are able to make me so dang tired!  It's definitely the hardest job, but the one I am most proud of.
