Today was my first Mother’s Day.
That still sounds weird.
I bought a card for my Mommy & Me friend, Jenn and it sums up this crazy ride very well:
The pay is short. The hours are long. It’s a 24/7 kind of job. Training is learn-as-you-go. Patience and wisdom required from day one. Retirement isn’t an option. Being a mom is a lifetime job and nobody does it better than you!
I love to bitch about my job, but I really do love it and today was especially perfect.
It started off with a nice long hot shower followed by scrambled eggs, waffles, crispy bacon and orange juice, and then a couple of much needed hours at the nail salon getting the full treatment while I read blissfully.
I haven’t even gotten to the perfect part yet…
Spending the afternoon with my two favorite men.
I hope every Mother’s Day is just like today.
The best is yet to be.
