My 3rd Mother's Day In Pictures

Truth? The Mother’s Day party we had the night before left me feeling pretty rugged on the actual day. A rarity these days, tantalizing and bittersweet are those moments that I get (or want to) , get a little wild with my tribe.

It was a perfect weekend of tom foolery, Greek food from scratch, baby and big kid love, mother-love, cuddle-fests, movie-time, lazing about, being waited on, sleepovers and shenanigans. Tears and moments that teetered. Because after a few glasses of wine, I brought up the recent TIME cover extravaganza.

Oh boy. All I will say about that is TIME, bravo and ladies – for all of our differing (and similar), opinions, I would not have you any other way. As for my Mother’s Day? The manling won all the prizes without even reading this. Sort of. It was head hazy, sunny, deliciously warm and love-dipped divine. Slider after the jump.

    Much like wagon rides, except I'm the one doing the pulling. Still, when the sun is shining and the baby girl is not trying to dump herself out in the middle of an intersection - this is a nice activity to do the night before Mother's Day. Or anytime, really.

    You (I) do not have a throbbing headache the size of Mt. Rushmore. Happy Mother's Day you sorry so and so who drank too much wine the night before. Just what kind of mother are you (I), anyways?

    My girl loves to hang with other girls as it's just me at home. All boys at her daycare and the children of our besties, all boys.

    This, was made for me by Abigail. (Really our daycare provider - an absolute sweetie, far sweeter than me, that's for sure). I'm just going to ignore the misspelt name.

    Brunch was luxurious. I absolutely love the feeling of having Abby curled up next to me in a wrap or carrier. The feeling only maximized by how much she adores it too. Le sigh. My girl.

    And she slept amidst the ruckus until she didn't. Wherein she woke up all smiles, no muss, no fuss over not having slept anywhere near what she usually does. It was like she knew it was Mother's Day. That and she had about 10 adoring fans catering to her every whim.
  • Fun. Wow. Whee. 8 of 8
    Fun. Wow. Whee.
    That may sound sarcastic. But truly. My 3rd Mother's Day around the sun was splendid. Thank-you my peeps. You know who you are.

So. How was YOUR Mother’s Day? Was it your first, or have you already been around the day of worship several times?
