Our Mother’s Day didn’t exactly go as I had planned in my head, and if you know me, you know I plan things out exactly how I want them to go (in my head) and get a tiny bit irritated if they don’t go as planned (again, in my head) – Yes, I know this seems crazy and I have promised the hubs I am working on this :)
When we first got up the hubby made me pancakes and sausage, my breakfast request. Then he and Brayden gave me my gifts – the kids and him made the big flower pots and my Mom and the kids made the smaller ones, I LOVE homemade personalized gifts, that is all I ever want and I’m so happy they both worked to give me some.
After breakfast, originally the 4 of us were going to go to the zoo (I had asked for a membership for Mother’s Day) but the morning of, Little Miss woke up with a fever. Brayden just had the fever a few days prior so we knew it was coming. I still wanted to go to the zoo and Brayden had been looking forward to it for days so we still went and the hubs stayed back with Ella. Surprisingly, I really didn’t mind this, but not like I had a choice in the matter either, he he.
I had so much fun with this little guy!! He just makes my heart melt, literally! He is my first baby who made me a Mother and because of him I get to celebrate this day for the rest of my life.
|He loved being the handler of the map, he wouldn't put it down, ever!|
When we got home from the zoo we all headed over to my Grandma’s house, this is usually where my side of the family goes on Mother’s Day. This year there weren’t too many people there though but it was good to see my Mom, sister and Grandma. Every year we have gone since Brayden has been born, he has been in the worst mood and this year was no exception :) The hubs says it’s tradition, LOL
A while back I took my Mom and Grandma to get a professional picture taken of us with Ella, for the 4 generations of females. I gave each one a famed picture from that day, it turned out so beautiful! We also took some with Brayden but to say he wasn’t cooperating would be putting it nicely :)
Then we went by my in-laws for a late lunch/early dinner. I made my Mom and Mother in Law each a painted pot with the kids handprints as well. I also love making homemade/personalized gifts for the Grandparents, it’s just so fun and sentimental!
Mother’s Day has a whole new meaning to me ever since becoming a Mother myself. My kids have brought me true happiness and meaning in my life. I am so thankful to my hubby as well for giving these 2 little people to me. I love my family beyond words and cherish the memories we continue to make. I look forward to many many more Mother's Day celebrations!
