Mother’s Day? A bit of a disappointment, but that is neither here nor there.
What I did to make up for it?
I realized that Mother’s Day needs to be about me and my love for them.
So, even though I was upset, I loved them. I held them a little tighter and broke the rules.
They stayed up late playing with friends and still got cuddles. No rushed bedtimes, no hurried hugs and kisses.
I read to #1 and #2, then rocked #2 to sleep. Where I held her in my arms much longer than I should have. And, I put my face to her little head, and I just breathed.
I savored the time, loved my cuddles and just held my baby girl. Because, before I know it, she won’t be a baby girl anymore, and she won’t want the cuddles. So, even though it wasn’t the Mother’s Day I hoped it would be. I was thankful for the very reasons that made me a mother.
