Mother's Day 2010

I think most of you know that I’m not a big fan of Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day may be a relaxing day if your grown up children take you out to lunch or dinner. But if you are the mother of three little boys, the “special day” can just be an annoying disruption to a carefully planned weekend routine. For example…

My 1yo Liam and I usually share breakfast. And because yesterday was Mother’s Day, my husband served me breakfast in bed. But he hadn’t really thought it through. How am I going to eat breakfast in bed with a 1yo smearing it all over me and the sheets? So my husband dragged Liam out of the bedroom, and Liam cried and cried. Ahhh! Not so relaxing!

So, after a bumpy start, we decided to have a nice, normal day, which is actually how I prefer things to be.

Anyway, I thought I would share a little “Interview” my boys did for me.
