Yayyy! I’m glad you had an amazing day, you deserve it!
We spent the day with D’s family and his mom said it was one of her BEST Mother’s Days ever! 🙂
My mum had to work today, so we are celebrating later on this week 🙂

Glad you both had a wonderful Mother’s Day.  You deserve it!  We went to church this morning and watched Emma’s church musical and then went to my cousins for dinner. We had a blast but I chowed down, haha, not good. I guess I just owe Jillian Michael’s a couple of extra days this weeks. haha

My Fiance gave me a super sweet card and took me out to dinner tonight at a new restaurant in town, it was great.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I don’t mean to be a downer, but Mom’s Day was horrible yesterday.  I ended up sitting in the car in FI’s driveway last night sobbing.  My 5 year old was a complete PITA.  Everything out of his mouth was contrary or rude.  I told him today that I’d call his dad (my ex) and we’d have a conversation together if Fiance and I had to put up with another day like yesterday.  I know he’s going through a lot right now with us trying to get the house staged and ready to sell, his dad’s wife having a baby, etc, but yesterday was beyond what one person can deal with.  I have decided to boycott Mother’s day next year!

Ah Sea otter, so sorry! Hang in there and maybe try again the next weekend? Tell him he needs to make it up to you and your having a mom’s day Do-Over! He’ll probably think it’s funny and gives him an out for a bad day while letting him know you will allow him to make it up to you (don’t we mom’s always make it ok)?

My day was nice, top down on the convertible for a drive to Malibu for seafood on the water with the family. And the teens weren’t as mouthy as usual! lol. Although, they said I looked like a Pirate! [attachment=198815,17443]

We went to church, a late brunch then home for naps, before finishing the day with a cool swim in the pool.

We had a good day. Low Key. I slept late, How made me breakfast with Lil’s help, of course. Then I played on the computer while they cleaned up the house. Then I went to the grocery store and got dinner food. We took a nap and How made us dinner. How gave me a wonderful pair of Chloe wedges a couple of weeks ago, so I decided that could be my present for sure. So I got a couple of cards and some great flowers. Good day!

Thanks guys.  He’ll be back at Daddy’s next weekend.  My birthday is 5/26, so maybe Memorial Day Weekend will be better!

Bittersweet as my daughter and only child died unexpectedly Nov. 2001. She always remembered me on Mother’s Day. But she still sends a present. Sometimes it’s a rainbow or what we called pinky clouds. Or one of our favorite songs we used to dance to will pop up on the radio.

@bluespurrs – So sorry for your loss.  What a nice way to recognize that your daughter watches over you.

@sea otter – I’ve had those days too

My kids came home from the weekend at their dad’s at noon on Sunday (we mutually agreed not to throw a kink in our weekend schedule, just an earlier pick-up) – it took them the usual winding-down period to get rid of the bad attitudes, but we enjoyed a lovely dinner out with my family and they behaved.

FH got them gifts to give me and they were sweet. 

I was happy with the day.  🙂

Sea Otter, it’s funny that you mentioned the boycott! My daughter is 15 and lives with her dad, and has been terribly rotten as of late; Mother’s Day was kindly being referred to as "My Happy Sunday" by Fiance, since I was not getting the MD vibe.

Needless to say, girl finally called and we had a nice talk. THat was as good as it got!

Oh 15 is often a mouthy age, you will be surprised as she matures. My daughter and I were very close as she struggled with serious medical problems all her life, but at 15, many of her friends were real brats. It gets better, really!
