So.... tell me, tell me... How was your Mother’s Day??? Mine was… not what I expected. I was sooooo looking forward to it... Rainee even said when she got up "It wasn't just Mother's Day, it was also Rainee-Bear's day too"... which really made me smile..
Anyway the day started out great... then about an hour in to the morning... took a turn when Rainee decided she wanted to wear the same outfit as me.. which I of course didn't have anything close for her... so I put on matching necklaces... but she broke it before we got out the door and she started crying... So, I got some hair stars for us to wear... we would be daddy's stars today... then she started crying over the outfit again... She cried in the car... at the restaurant... she cried... we had a private talk in the Ladies Room... and thinking it was all better... she cried on the little train ride... she cried in the car on the way home... by now, Steve was starting to lose it... she cried because Champy-Boy wouldn't play with her.... she cried because I wouldn't let her go in the pool after she told me her ear was slightly hurting... That's when Steve just picked her up and put her to bed for a nap... which when she got up...you guessed it... she cried...
Today... today, the first thing Rainee said to me as she's giving me a huge hug... 'Mommy can we have a do-over and pretend today is Mother's Day, because yesterday wasn't all that great, was it Mommy???'
So, even after all the tears her little heart gave into yesterday... she still wanted to make it up to 'US'... and have a good Mother's Day... and today was fabulous... lots of laughter and lots of hugs & kisses too!!!
Mother's Day wasn't what I expected, but then whatever is??? But I know I'm blessed to have a little one who can see it was a bad day and wanted to do a do-over.... Too sweet! What about your day, was it what you expected?? Better or Worse?
