If it’s possible, Mother’s Day gets better and better each year! This year seemed extra special since I’m pregnant too! Our weekend was busy but wonderful.
Saturday was jam packed! We have our favorite masseuse that we’ve been seeing (less and less these days) for years. Stew set up a massage for me Saturday morning, which was exactly what I needed. After that, I headed into Charleston for my girlfriend’s “Sip and See”, which I thought was the cutest idea ever! She just had her second child, so it was a nice casual lunch. After a few hours of relaxing and eating amazing food, the husbands dropped off the kids and they had a little fun of their own. I see an arranged marriage in our future…
Sunday morning, I sang at church and then we had our usual lunch and nap at home. Turner slept for 3 hours, which was a record. It’s almost as if he knew it was a celebration for Mommas. Stew got some work done, while I rested on the couch. My lack of energy is record breaking. It was the perfect mid-day break before continuing the festivities at my mom’s that afternoon!
When Turner finally woke up, we packed up shop and drove to Gigi’s. Turner’s been waiting to go to Gigi’s for weeks now. He asks me every day, so he was extra excited! I always love going to my mom’s house. She has everything decorated so beautifully and the food is nothing short of amazing. We had an early dinner and hung out outside so Turner could run around. Watching him makes me even more exhausted.
Trying to get a family picture was like pulling teeth. We would attempt to pick him up and he’d scream DOOOWWWWWN! Remember the good old days when they’d do whatever we wanted them to!? He’s becoming so independent. Luckily, my willpower is stronger than his, so I told him if he didn’t take a picture with us, we’d go inside. And he knows by now that Mommy don’t mess around.
I never appreciated how much work it takes to be a mom until I actually became one. It makes me that much more thankful for my mom! Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mommas out there!
