Mother’s Day Wish List (free and realistic)

I’m going to go ahead and generalize this post implying that everything I want is what all mothers want.  Be aware.

This will be my first mother’s day.  I was about 30 weeks pregnant at this time last year so I wasn’t “really” a mom yet, and we didn’t celebrate the day.  Elizabeth is 9 months old and is a firecracker.  This baby seriously never stops.  She is always physically going around the room making noise: babbling to herself or just screaming in whatever emotion she currently feels.  However, I’m sure any mother of any level of energetic child will appreciate any of the following (mainly from the husbands, *wink wink, nudge nudge*):

  • A ‘thank you’.  Not just for cleaning up after the family and taking care of the child(ren), but for doing everything that is required to keep a child alive all day everyday.
  • A day off.  Seriously what I would give to have my husband be in my shoes for a week.  Realistically, having a day at home with my entire family but not having to do any work is what would be the best.  I wouldn’t even want to have to ask or say “okay, now she needs this,” or nag about a chore that needs finishing.
  • Finally, something adorable from the child.  I don’t care if it’s a hand print and foot print on printer paper with the date, or if it’s a million dollar gold chunk in the shape of my child, this bullet point is a must-do for any “parent day”.

Have a great Mother’s Day, everybody! ❤
