Five Reasons to Celebrate Mother's Day!

Perhaps a "twist" as to celebrating Mother's Day! I celebrate Mother's Day for all the Mom's in my lives! From my own to extended to friends and especially those who I know have been struggling for so long to become moms! Mother's Day is that one special day a year where they finally get somewhat of the recognization that they deserve...

Although today could be reason enough to wallow in self pity, instead I am choosing to think of the top five reasons why I celebrate Mother's Day for others and not for myself... Although, let me say that I am most certainly looking forward to giving up each and everyone of these things for our child(ren)!!!! I WANT to give them up!!!!! For now though, I will try to enjoy them as it's the cards I've been delt...


5. Bailey's!!!!! Okay. So this is still way enjoyed by mom's but pregnant and nursing mother's, it's a no-no...


4. Sleep! Let's just say that I enjoy this A LOT!!!!


3. Right now, THIS is the choice pick for outings... The only items I carry on me are my keys, cell phone, wallet, chapstick, and occassionally sunglasses as needed.


2. A house that is not overtaken by TOYS!


1. The time alone I can spend with my husband, whenever I choose! None of the whole finding a babysitter or planning time alone. Right now, it is solely dictated by work schedules and nothing else, but believe me, work schedules are enough!
So, again, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of you Pro-Moms, New-Moms, and Soon-To-Be-Moms!
