While you are working on your contest entry, like this post and then tell us what you're doing for Mother's Day! I'm going to give away one bumGenius One-Size Organic All-In-One to random commenters all weekend!

I'll start... for Mother's Day, my mom and dad are going to be visiting us. I'm sitting in the basement next to the bed they will be sleeping in. As I type this, I'm realizing that I can't remember the last time that I spent Mother's Day with my mom. It might have been the year that I left home (and I was 17). I'm really looking forward to spending some time with her this weekend.

So, what are you doing?

    It was an awesome day! Work up early enough to get a work-out in (preparation for the food I would be eating ;)). Headed to church to watch a friend’s baby get baptized then met my family for a late brunch. Stuffed ourselves silly, then ran to my grandmother’s house for a visit (she was just released from a rehab center, so it was great to see her at home!).

    We spent the morning in bed lounging with our newborn Jackson. He even offically smiled at me for the first time this morning and stole my heart once again. Couldn’t of asked for a better Mom’s Day present. Packed up and headed to lunch with my mom and dad to celebrate as well. Nothing fancy just good family time!

    We spent the weekend in an awkward place. Just told the family last weekend that we are expecting in November…this weekend was a weekend-long memorial celebration for a good friend of my MIL and wonderful person in mine and husbeast’s lives. We spent the weekend mourning the loss of a lovely woman and being congratulated by all of her family and friends for bringing new life into the world.

    Hanging out with my hubby, our son, and parent-in-law. Meeting in small town midway between our house and theirs.
    Tending to the garden.
    Playing hugs & kisses with little boy!
    Calling important moms in my life too.
    SO FUN!

    We spent time as a family going to Grant’s Farm, spending lots of time outside, and roasting marshmallows and making s’mores on this fall-like night. Hope all had a fabulous Mother’s Day. I am so thankful for my mom and my amazing kiddos.

    Well, I’m a little bummed. I thought I posted something yesterday. But oh well, I used my Mother’s Day “chips” to get a lot of undone chores completed. My hubby did everything I asked him to do today. He got me some donuts for breakfast too. 🙂

    Was surprised with breakfast by my husband and 8 month old daughter this morning, had lunch with my mom at a French bakery in our neighborhood, went to a cookout at my husband’s mother’s house, my husband took me to my favorite clothing store to shop for a summer dress (with no luck, but the experience and thought were wonderful), then back to my mother’s in my pj’s to watch desperate housewives! it was a terrific first mother’s day 🙂

    My hubby let me sleep in a bit (7:30 is sleeping in in my house) and I woke up to “M-O-M” pancakes. My hubby had my son paint a terra cotta put (he is 18 months old) and planted my favorite flower in it. It was the best gift ever. We went out to lunch with my hubby’s parents and brother and then we spent the rest of the day just lounging around and being lazy because my son has been sick with a stomach bug all week.

    Well we usually spend Mother’s Day at my Grandma’s house with my Parents and my Sister and her family. But this year I did something special for myself and hopefully for someone else! I went to Jcpenny’s and got my hair all cut off so I could donate it to locks of love! I’ve been waiting 3 years to grow my hair out to do this so its been a long time coming! The girl cutting my hair kept laughing because she couldn’t believe how thick my hair was and how much there really was to cut! So after 3 years I finally can say I dontaed all of my hair to someone who needs it!!

    I got my mother’s day present last weekend (my husband got his weekends confused ;)) I got a tshirt with a picture of a wine glass that says “mommy juice” below! I took care of two whiny kids with several potty training accidents and diaper explosions…but at the end of the night remembered why I love this kiddos sooooo much! Happy Mothers Day!

    What I am doing (did)for Mother’s day is went to church, then after my daughter’s nap, my husband and I took Kentucky Fried Chicken to my mom and grandmother’s house, and had a delicious dinner with them, and with my brother. A quiet, but nice, day.

    Today is my first Mother’s Day! My husband started the day by making me breakfast and coffee. We spent the rest of the day just hanging out with our daughter and relaxing. We then went over to my parents house where my dad made me stuffed shells and chocolate cake to celebrate. I’m now putting the babe to bed. Perfect day!

    Our home was in a ‘parade of homes’ type of thing today in a transitional in-town neighborhood (meaning: homes are old and always in some state of renovation), so I spent mother’s day showing strangers my house. 🙂 It was a lot of fun and nice to have my husband around all day. Almost time to call the grandmas!

    Today I am spending the day sleeping in, taking a long relaxing bath, and doing homework. Well at the least the first 2 were nice. We’ll also be going out to dinner provided the sweet 18 month old (in his BG AIO Organic OS of course!) is being a sweetheart as usual.

    I just got off work so our typical Mother’s Day plans were put on hold today. Instead we are celebrating tomorrow when my hubby takes the day off work and we are going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. This is our Mother’s Day tradition and I look forward to it all year long!

    My husband daughter and i went out to breakfast with my mom. Then we came back to our house and put the diapers out on the line (smile). Took a walk. Then my mom went home and we started preparing to have my husbands family over for dinner. My MIL, FIL, BIL, SIL , niece, and nephew came over for dinner. Now i am giving my daughter a bath while my husband cleans up. I am going to stuff some diapers tonight and relax.

  • Mike said...

    Every Mother’s Day we go to church and them we all have dinner with my parents, grand-parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. They are all invited. Sounds like a lot of people, but my family is fairly small, about 15 will make it this year. I am lucky that most of my family lives close and we all enjoy a nice family dinner, pot luck style!

  • Amanda said...

    We spent all day shopping for Daddy! LOL Sounds strange, I know. But we bought a miter (sp?) saw and new weed eater. The miter saw will get a lot of use for projects with the kids – building a birdhouse, planter boxes, etc. And the weed eater was needed because our old one died and out yard desperately needed it! LOL
    Oh, we also got stuff to redo the kids bathroom in monkeys! 🙂

    My husband surprised me with a prenatal massage, pedicure, & manicure on Saturday! It was amazing! After that, we went and picked up our little lady’s nursery furniture. She is due to arrive in about 4 months and we’re eager to set everything up! My husband is in the military and having him here for my pregnancy is not something we were always guaranteed. Luckily, we found out he is non-deployable for 2 years, just in time for our daughter’s birth! I laid on the floor last night watching him put her crib together and thought to myself how blessed I am to be able to share this experience with him. God truly takes care of us!

    We will be visiting our mothers today. I was greeted this morning with “breakfast in bed” The kids brought me cold pizza, Yogos & a cherry Coke. lol They were soooo proud! I can hardly believe that they are already nearly 1, 3 & 5. It goes so fast! I am a blessed mother & just adore my babies. <3 We just got our first Bum Genius Organic OS the other day, I am in LOVE! I only have 3 & would love a dozen more, they even lasted overnight without a doubler.

    I am not sure what I’m doing for mother’s day. My husband isn’t the best at planning for special occasions, so I just keep the pressure very low and see what happens. However, I do really need to do some more yard work. That wouldn’t be the worst thing I could do on Mother’s Day.

    this is my first Mother’s Day as a Mom. I am not quite sure exactly what we’ll be doing. It will be cold, rainy and windy outside, so that cancelled out plans for a hike. I think my husband is planning to make me breakfast in bed with our son..shhhh. don’t let on I know 😉

    I’m getting over the fact that my mom, who is visiting the area from over 1,500 miles away, has decided to spend mother’s day with my brother, who is an hour and a half away. It’s my first mother’s day as a mother (and my mother’s first as a grandmother) and she’s going to be so close, yet still so far.
    After my pity part (!), I’m going to relish some quiet time with hubby and the most darling baby ever – but I think that my husband said that he’d do all the diaper changes. 😀

    I pouted when I found out that my husband’s family scheduled a birthday party for one of the nephews ON MOTHER’S DAY… ummm, seriously? My husband very sweetly told me to get over it, and that we’d find other ways to celebrate.

    Last night, he let me pick out a ceiling fan for our living – something I’ve been asking for. Today, we took the kids on a tour of a CSA farm one town over. Then we picked strawberries at another farm near our house.

    We had a delicious dinner with all of the produce we got today, and I noticed the bottom drawer of the fridge was stocked with breakfast foods, “for Momma’s Mother’s Day breakfast tomorrow!” I feel so full right now – literally and figuratively 🙂

    This has been a very difficult last 5 weeks. My husband is a medical school student. He just completed his second year. He had 5 weeks of testing that he finally finished but required a lot of sacrifice for the both of us. So I am a mommy to 3 with one on the way, I was in desperate need of some mommy relax/sleep time. So my husband took the kids for the weekend to my inlaws house. Which happed to fall on mothers day weeked. And I am here for a quiet weekend of rest and relaxiation. Today I am going to go see the movie Babies. Then off for a pedicure, and closing the day with shopping which I havent done in over a year. I might buy my self something.

    My mother and I have had 30 rough years. We never got along. In the past few weeks I have been feeling really bad about it, and have decided to do something to fix our relationship. We hardly ever talk, we aren’t very connected. I have decided to propose a weekly get-together with her, and want to try to talk to her and get to know her better. This mother’s day isn’t so much about myself being a mother (although I do love that my husband and baby will celebrate me!), it’s more about me doing something for my own mother, which is long overdue 🙂

    Not sure, but I think now it may be a bit of a Mother’s/ Father’s as we prepare for another cancer sugery for my Father-in-law. It’s been a year since the last, and he is doing great! Cancer helps you learn to celebrate every day as Mother’s and Father’s, and families day! Every day as a blessing! So Sunday will be a Parents day for us, and will hopefully include someone other then me cooking lol!

I can’t wait to get our other children involved in preparing for the new baby; hopefully it will become more real for them. I can’t think of a better way to spend Mother’s Day than preparing for our expanding family!

    Something simple, like muffins and tea in the park. I’m a week from my due date with my second babe … hanging out with my little family outside on a beautiful morning sounds just about perfect.

    My mom, my MIL, and I all decided we are exhausted and all just want a day in our own homes to ourselves! Haha! We were all thinking it but I was the first one (at 35 weeks pregnant) to open my mouth! We figure once the baby arrives we’ll all be together anyway – so we’ll celebrate then. 🙂

    Spending most of the day with the kiddos, my Mother-in-Law and Grandmother-in-Law. Monday we’re going to the zoo which has been our Mothers’ Day tradition in the past but it’s just to busy now so we’ve moved it back a day. 😀

    We will just be taking it easy and going to church. I think my husband was going to cook for the day and let me sleep in a bit. I’m sure he’s got something else up his sleeve, but I’m really looking forward to relaxing and just spending time with my husband and out son Andrew! He’s such a cutie!

  • Anna M. said...

    I think we may be going out for breakfast, and then possibly to the park. My husband said we’re definitely getting out of the house this weekend, though! He’s been studying for his ASE Certification exams all month, and we haven’t had any family time AT ALL. He took the exams yesterday, so we’re FREEEEE!!! We WILL be doing something fun!!

  • Barbie said...
    May 7, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    Saturday some of my other mother friends and I are going out to dinner, sans kids. On Mother’s Day I’m sleeping in a little bit, which I dearly need. We’re going to the movies in the afternoon with the boys, and hopefully it will be warm enough outside for some outdoor fun. My oldest (4 yo) told me he wanted to get me a beautiful ring. 🙂

  • Jackie said...

    May 7, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    This will be my first mother’s day with my little girl who is 4 months old. Unfortunately, my husband has an exam on Monday morning so I think that we will have a mellow day. I’m planning on taking my daughter to a bakery in the morning to get some treats.

  • greenmtn mama said...

    Trying this for a third time – it doesn’t seem to be working!

    I’m sending my hubby to his mom for Mother’s Day! Every year he works away from home for a number of weeks. We will attend church, have a quiet dinner at home while he packs, then take him to the airport.

    We’re hitting the zoo and feeding the giraffes! And I’ve been promised a day in the next week to shop at the fabric store minus kids and sew as much as I want. But I think the zoo with the kids and hubby will be the best!

  • Sarah said...
    May 7, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    We’re going to spend Mother’s Day with my In-laws this year. But on Saturday, we are all doing a 5K as a family! My husband is a runner, and I’ve been desperately trying to learn not to hate running, lol. So it will be MY first 5K, and for all four of my kids it will be their first as well. We’re just doing the walk, since I have a 7 month old and a 3 year old, and they need to go in strollers, BUT, they will get to wear a number bib! 🙂

    Well, this Mother’s Day will be a little different…not necessarily for our family in particular…but in our city! We live in Nashville, TN, and although much of the world is just being introduced to the fact that we had a major flood here this week, Nashville is beginning to put pieces back together! Today, my friend and I took our almost 2 and almost 1 yr. olds out and decided to help where we could. We started at the Farmers Market and then made our way to an area of town where there was severe flooding in a residential area. As we saw the devastation of seeing house after house with pieces of their homes and lives being stacked up on the sidewalk for the garbage truck to carry away, I was profoundly reminded how much importance we put sometimes on material things and how quickly that can all disappear! So this Mother’s Day, I will be extra grateful for the blessings in my life..the ones that mean the most…my family…both immediate and the one in my community!

  • Melissa said...
    May 7, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    Actually this may be weird to most people but I would like a couple hours with the house to myself on mother’s day! I figure a couple in the morning while my hubby takes them to the part will enable me to clean out my mind a little…and be able to take on the rest of the day. The perfect day to me would be to just let the girls play and goof around in the backyard and have my husband BBQ something that night.He always does awesome dinners…so anything with him cooking is great to me! 🙂

  • Lindsay Mills said...

    Seeing how I woke up this morning with the flu, I think I’ll be spending my weekend in bed. If I’m lucky, my wonderful husband will take care of our daughter and maybe I’ll be feeling well enough to read my book.

    RELAXING! On Sunday that is. I am starting the weekend by going out with some great ladies for dinner. This is significant because I never go out without kids, especially for something fun! Tomorrow we will volunteer as a family, planting a community garden at our church, which provides food for our food pantry. Hopefully Sunday will bring calm, rest, and appreciation of all the beautiful things surrounding me, especially my children!

    I have no idea what I’m doing for Mother’s Day. Truthfully, I never know what we’re doing until the last possible minute. Because that’s the way we roll here. I’d love to say I was going home to be with my mom, but we’re all too worn out around here and need some major “down time.” I’m thinking we’ll go to church as usual and then perhaps,if I’m lucky, we’ll go out for lunch. Relaxation is a wonderful gift!!!!

    I’m a little sad that my mom is spending her first mothers day alone. The last few years I have been able to visit, but this year money is tight. Her babies have grown up and moved away. My brother and his wife are stationed over on the west coast in Cali, and my husband and I are stationed over here on the ease coast in NC. Hopefully next year we can surprise her! This year is my second mothers day, and I am 8 months pregnant. Hopefully my hubby will wake up with our 1 year old and let me sleep in!!! (That’ll be the day.. lol!)

    I have no idea what we will be doing. It is my first Mother’s Day and my husband it not saying a word. Whenever I bring up the fact that it is Mother’s Day this weekend he just looks at me and goes oh yea that is this weekend. But even if we don’t do anything it will be so much fun just to spend the day together since my husband has been working overtime on most weekends and he will have this one off.

I attend law school in the evenings so that I can help provide a better future for my family. So, I will really be spending it grateful for the health and happiness of my family. . . and looking forward to our future!

    We are going to our local goat farm (me, my daughters, my mom and her mom) for their spring festival to play with the goats tomorrow! Should be fun. Maybe church on Sunday.

    We don’t have many plans (that I know of…maybe my dh and lo will surprise me) but we will go see my mom after she gets out of work on Sunday and potentially bring her dinner and a little something to say, “Thanks for being so great!”

    My first “Mother’s Day” was 14 years ago. My oldest daughter turned 14 today. I wake her up every year on her birthday with a birthday cake made just for her regardless of parties scheduled at other times. Today I picked her up from school for a lunch date together before returning her back to her regular routine of volleyball practices and band rehearsals. My first “Mother’s Day” I didn’t feel like a mother at all, I had just given birth, and didn’t yet relate to what a Mother’s Day was supposed to be. Now, every year Mother’s day is the day I get to celebrate really becoming a mother, and how the birth of my daughter was the biggest definition of that. Mother’s Day for me is really about the precious lives I have been a part of, and the honor I feel to be that person in my daughter’s lives.

    I am very excited for Mothers Day this year! My oldest 2 are participating in relay races the day before so we will be spending the whole day cheering them on and on Sunday we will be attending church and have the missionaries from our church over for family dinner that evening. It should be a weekend of family fun and my youngest hinted at a fun surprise I have yet to hear about!

    It will be low profile around here. We’ll go to church Sunday morning and serve other mothers by working in the nursery, then home for lunch and naps (maybe one for mom, too), and then celebrating mothers with our small group from church. Spending the day with hubby and the kiddos is enough gift for me. But we might do lunch or dinner out on Saturday.

  • Alicia E said...
    May 7, 2010 at 2:12 pm

    This will be my first mother’s day as a mother as well to a sweet little girl 3/22. We plan to go to church, hopefully take a nap when we get home, and then go to my MIL’s for supper–which I’m not allowed to cook for. =) DH wants to take me out to eat as well but it will be a different day than Sunday.

  • Stephanie said...
    May 7, 2010 at 2:12 pm

    I get to sing at church this Mother’s Day! Then I plan on making some “healthy” baskets to give to my mom, mother-in-law and step mom. I’ll bake some healthy treats and maybe include some recipes too!

  • Robyn Orme said...

    I will be calling my mom and grandmothers, but other than that I don’t have any slid plans. This will be my first Mother’s day and I really don’t know what to expect. I’ll be happy with a lazy day cuddling my husband, daughter, and puppies!

    I let my husband and kids surprise me on Mother’s Day, so I can’t really say for sure. They usually cook me breakfast in bed. My husband takes diaper duty all day long, and he cleans the house and my car for me. As long as I’m with my family for a relaxing day, I don’t care what we do. Oh, and of course I get to sleep in too.

  • Robyn P. said...
    May 7, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    I am looking forward to spending this Mother’s Day with my beautiful 17 month old daughter and wonderful husband. We most likely will just be spending the day at home, enjoying each others company. Forcast is calling for snow! Mother’s Day had always been hard for me, since losing my mother 13 1/2 years ago, but since the birth of my daughter, things have changed, and I look at it as a wonderful day knowing that I am completely blessed.

    Last year we celebrated good news, and this year I’m spending my first Mother’s day as a mom with my dad, grandparents, and little girl. We’re gong out to dinner on Saturday, then I’m sleeping in late with baby and her dad on Sunday.

    I’ll be going to church and then just cuddling my hubby and two littles the rest of the day. We just found out, (unexpectedly!) That #3 is on the way. I’ve been so sick and all I can eat is mashed potatoes. My sweet hubby always cooks me a big fancy meal for mother’s day. He asked what I wanted this year, and he wasn’t surprised with my answer. . . .Lots and lots of mashed potatoes!! I am so grateful for these little ones that call me Mama!! 😉

    We are hosting my husband’s family at our new home….these plans were made 7 weeks ago WHEN I HAD JUST GIVEN BIRTH and my husband called his brother to announce baby Jake’s arrival…”Hey we’re having Mother’s Day at our house, ok?” my husband says and I say “whatever, I’m kind of busy here!”

    We (meaning me) haven’t decided yet, b/c my Hubby is working all day and I don’t think my parents will be visiting. I am trying to thing of a nice brunch spot for me and the munchkin that won’t be ridiculously busy!

  • amy taylor said...
    May 7, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    This will be my first Mother’s Day. We will start the day by going to church and getting our picture taken with our 4-month-old girl (mother’s day photos are a yearly tradition at our church), and then my husband thoughtfully made reservations for brunch at the Hilton. We’ll see how that goes with our daughter! I usually spend the day with my mom, but she was quite understanding about the fact that this day if for me too now!

  • Heather said...

    May 7, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    For Mother’s Day, I’ll be helping the 2 and 3 year olds at church make cards for their mommies. Then I’ll enjoy time with my children and husband in the afternoon. I think my husband is planning a special dinner because he went grocery shopping on his own last night and there are wrapped packages in the fridge. 🙂

    May 7, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    This is always “my” weekend. My birthday is May 10th so its always my weekend to be spoiled by my husband. This year is really emotional for me. A friend’s baby girl who was 2 weeks older than my baby (9months today!) died from a rare liver tumor in January. In the morning on Sunday we are going to bring the family a bright pink butterfly bush and a card to honor baby Jamie.

    This is also the first Mother’s Day without my mom. She died 13 days before Riley Jane was born (my mom was Janet Lee, Ri is named for her) and to be honest, I’m kind of having a hard time thinking about mother’s day as a celebration this year. Its just really hitting home that I won’t have a picture of my mom holding Riley like I do of my other kids and its just hard. So likely while I am enjoying my children and having key lime pie (my mom’s favorite treat) in honor of my mom, I will be shedding some tears and missing her like mad.

    I know, I’m Debbie downer today. Sorry. Tough week.

  • Melissa said...
    May 7, 2010 at 1:29 pm

    We’re going out for brunch in the morning and then will probably take the kids to the park in the afternoon. The kids make gifts at preschool…my five-year-old wanted to tell me what he had made me. I explained I really wanted it to be a surprise and he told me I should just forget what it was after he told me. 🙂

    This will be the second mother’s day for me as a mom! We are going to spend a good family weekend together. We plan to go to the local farmer’s market, then an art show on Saturday. On Sunday, we are going to my mom’s house, going to hear my sister speak at church and then lunch with the family. Looking forward to some good family time and beautiful weather!

    I love to garden, so for mother’s day my husband is taking us all (myself, our two young daughters, and our soon-to-be-born son) to an enormous plant sale to buy some vegetable plants for our garden! It’s become sort of a tradition since Mother’s day is right at the start of the growing season here for us. If it’s not raining, we may dig in the dirt a bit and plant some things–my perfect idea of a mother’s day well spent! 🙂

    My husband has drill, so we’re spending the whole weekend in the barracks on base. I’ll be spending Sunday packing up the car and trying to find something interesting for me and my son to do (for the 6 hours between checkout and the time my husband gets out of work) before we can make the drive home.

    But, my husband mentioned to the girl who checks us in at the barracks that I was here and it’s going to be Mother’s Day, so she put us in the officer’s barracks. The cute thing about that is that we were in this exact same room 3 years ago (well, the Mother’s Day weekend 3 years ago) when I found out I was pregnant. I teared up a little, and my husband just laughed at me. :o)

    This weekend for Mother’s Day, I’m going to ask my hubby to let me sleep in. Although I’ll end up awake when my son decides to wake up (usually before 7), it’s nice to just lay in bed, undisturbed for a while. We’ll end up having breakfast at home. Then, lunch is at a local Italian restaurant with my extended family (my grandma and mom will be there). Next we’ll be off to my in-laws house for a visit. For dinner, my hubby will be grilling us some yummy steaks and shrimp! 🙂

    We’re living with my in-laws for the time-being. (We had been living across the country from ALL of our family and wanted to be closer as we started a family of our own… this was the temporary solution.) We are building an apartment above their garage, but things have not gone exactly “according to plans.” SO… we will be FRANTICALLY working on the apartment in order to get it done and get moved in before our little one makes his/her big debut!

    My husband didn’t do anything for my first mother’s day. I’m still not real happy with him for that. This year we will visit my mom again, and I plan to ask my husband to at least let me hang out in bed for a few more minutes on Saturday morning (tomorrow) and ask him to get her diaper changed and breakfast started before I have to get up, since Sunday we will be traveling, EARLY.

    I’m not sure. It’s my first Mother’s Day and I was told to keep the day free. My husband is not one for surprises or romance so I’m pretty excited that he (and Miles I’m sure at 11 months) thought of me.

    This is my first Mother’s Day with my daughter outside of my belly. 🙂 I’ll be singing in church in the morning and then meeting up with the in-laws to take my MIL hanging basket shopping (it’s our annual tradition), and then to an early dinner at my favorite local restaurant. A full day with the fam…I only wish MY mom lived closer so she could come too.

    Every year on Mother’s Day for as long as I can remember my whole family (and then some) would get together at my mom’s house. We would have a big pot-luck style lunch and then spend the afternoon playing games and just hanging out. This year for the first time we aren’t getting together on Mother’s Day. My brother is graduating college so my mom decided to throw him a party on Saturday and skip the Mother’s Day lunch. The whole family will still be together so it will still be special.
    So, for the first time in 7 years we get to spend the entire day with my in-laws. I don’t think my mother-in-law knows we will be able to be there all day. She is going to be very surpirsed!
    The holidays have become harder since our son was born because we feel like we have to rush off to be somewhere else. This Mother’s Day the best gift I will get is not having to decide how to split time between both sides of the family.

  • Sara said...
    May 7, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    We are going to church. I actually told DH I didn’t want him spending any money on me for Mother’s Day, because I’ve been spending so much on diapers for our little bundle of joy due in June… and I enjoyed that more than random gifts! We will go out to eat the day before, and he will cook us all dinner that evening. Probably clean the kitchen up, too. Yay!

    I’ll be spending the day with my 3 lovely daughters and my father. My Father raised my as a single Dad along with my Grandma (his mother). She passed away last Feb 2009. My father and I don’t have a Mother to celebrate so we celebrate together now. It’s a day to appreciate my Dad who was not only Dad but he played the Mom role as well. Not only does he still play Dad & Mom to me he does the same for my daughters even though they have both parents. I’m so very thankful for my Dad being one of the few Dads who stepped up when my mother walked out on him and I. I’m not 100% sure what we will be doing since today is also my Dad’s birthday… Something where we all can enjoy the family we do have.

    Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to spend Mother’s Day with my mom (she lives in MI, I’m in IL), but this will be my first Mother’s Day as a mommy myself! My husband works a lot of weekends, although he has this weekend off so my husband, son and I will go to church Sunday morning and then just spend time together the rest of the day. If the weather is nice, we will probably go to the park and maybe dinner out. Just a relaxing weekend with the fam! 🙂

    This mother’s day we are heading in to Boston for the Duckling Day Parade. It’s held on Mother’s Day every year and is based on the book “Make Way for Ducklings”. The parade is made up of little ones dressed as their favorite character from the book along with their family as they trace the same route through Boston that the duck family takes in the book.
    Afterwards we’ll probably head over to Mike’s Pastry for some yummy cannolis!

    This Mother’s Day, I will be celebrating my daughter’s 1st birthday. She was born last year on Mother’s Day, so her birthday isn’t actually until Monday. Two days of celebrating is always a good thing, though! When she was born, I thought to myself that no Mother’s Day would ever compare to my first. What better gift could a mom ask for than a perfectly healthy 9 lb baby?! But I know that spending this weekend celebrating the last wonderful year of my daughter’s life, all of her accomplishments and growths, will be even better!
