While my Mother's Day started with a "Hey, Mom, Ciaran pooped in his sleep again and got it all over himself and his bed. What should I do?" that was thankfully not how the whole day went.
I don't know why my five-year-old's poop clock has suddenly changed to where he's going in his sleep every night instead of predictably in the morning like usual, but hey, this is part of the "fun" of motherhood.
Poop aside, there really is a lot to enjoy about being a mom. I got so many hugs and kisses today. I got a lot of "Happy Mother's Day" wishes from the kids. I got a new rocker recliner which I'm sitting in Right Now! Honestly, I'll be sleeping in it again tonight but that's really related to the joys of pregnancy.
This Mother's Day was lovely, but more than anything it's the time I get just hanging out and enjoying my kids that means more to me than anything (although being able to sleep in this chair is pretty sweet).
I hope all the Mamas out there had a great day as well. Greeting Card Holiday it may be, but I think there's something to be said for taking one day a year to say thank you to those doing the hardest jobs out there. Like parenting children who will one day vote, lead, teach, protect, and of course, pick where we live when we're old.
