The perfect Mother’s Day isn’t about pedicures and spa treatments. It’s not about chocolate or candy. It’s not even about time alone or fabulous presents.
The perfect Mother’s Day is a day that reminds you why you love being a mother. It’s filled with cuddles, love, and hugs. It’s decorated with pictures painstakingly drawn by little hands. And it moves to the soundtrack of toddler giggles and preschooler songs.
I had the best Mother’s Day ever. It started out with a long family snuggle in our not quite big enough bed. It continued with a lavish Country Club brunch and an afternoon at the in law’s pool. And it ended with a low key, impromptu barbecue by the pool. Nothing special. Nothing out of the ordinary. Just a wonderful day with my wonderful family. A day that made me happy to be a mom.
