Happy day

Sunday, May 10, 2015

Happy day to all the mothers out there! For my mother's day, I'm going to have to wake up at 7 am so we can get to our kid's soccer game on time. I'm a bad mother since I'm hoping her team doesn't advance so we don't have to spend all day at the tourney, since we already spent most of Saturday there. The kids have plans for an Indian buffet for lunch and goodness knows what for dinner. It's going to take a superhuman effort tomorrow to stay on plan. I'm thinking that over-indulgence is in the cards, which is okay since I will be back on track the rest of the week.

The best thing about this weekend: our oldest is home from college for the summer. He is even less of a morning person than I am, but has decided to wake up early as well so we can spend the whole day together as a family. I have been sneaking in hugs and kisses all evening - what a treat! So yes, it's a very good weekend so far.

    How wonderful for you to have your son home also. You're not a "bad" mom for not wanting to spend your whole weekend at games. I'm sure if her team does advance, she will never know that you secretly wished otherwise. Have a good Mother's Day! --Pam

    Bemused, if not wanting your kid to advance in a sports competition so that you won't have to stay longer and get even more sunburned at the track meet, or go to another basketball or soccer game and have to stand up all day because the seats are all taken by crack-of-dawn-arriving rabid parents is evidence of bad mothering, then I plead guilty! But this is the first time I've ever admitted this to anyone, so I won't tell your kid if you don't tell mine! Sometimes my wish came true and sometimes it didn't, but everything worked out in the end, and my children and I, for the most part, had a great time during their school sports careers.

    So wonderful that your son is home! Have a wonderful time with him, and have a great Mother's Day!
