Mothers, I'm sure many of you have the age-old quandary of how to spend a day devoted just to you. Do you go alone to a spa, or just alone to your own bathroom for a long bath? Do you spend it with your kids, since the day is about mothering after all? Or do you visit your mother/mother-in-law, if God willing, you're lucky to still have her with you? Do you try to do it all? For the last 2 years, this has puzzled me, and my first Mother's Day, I must admit I was a bit stressed out over all the visiting that weekend with a new baby and all.
Last year was the best Mother's Day for me. Mr. Geek, SoJo and I just went to a local park for a simple picnic and it was wonderful.
I did miss seeing my mom, but sometimes you just have to take the easy route in life. A phone call and a belated gift was enough to set my mind at ease, and hopefully hers too.
Speaking of my mom and gifts, I'm trying to finish up a set of blocks for her.
My mom and SorenI do hope you have a wonderful, obligation-less Mothers' Day friends! Not sure if I'll be posting again until next weekend (save for the Weekend Contest linky) so I just wanted to wish you well, just in case.
