Mother’s Day has always been a big day in our household, as we get to celebrate one of the most amazing women I know – my mom! I could write pages and pages about how wonderful she is, but the post would never end. Instead, I want to thank her for the most important thing she taught me – how to be a good mom. I’m nowhere near the mom she is, but she has provided me with a shining example of what I strive to be as a mommy. She has given my sister and I unconditional love, and supported me throughout my life, no matter what shenanigans I got myself into.

After I put A down for his morning nap, my main squeeze made breakfast for me, which was delicious. I’m enjoying the adult-prepared breakfast, as I’ve heard from some of my friends that have older children that when the kids are old enough to prepare it, breakfast usually consists of something like a yogurt, a cookie, and a half-eaten banana. Served in your bed with crumbs and juice splashed around your duvet. Maybe I’ll luck out and A will turn out to be a child prodigy in the kitchen.
He spoiled me with flowers, a heartfelt card, and tickets to a Jays game – yeah, that’s right, I’m a long-time Jays fan. My love for the blue and white is for baseball, not hockey! We are going to attempt to take A to a Jays game with us. When he was just a wee boy, he received a Jays hat and t-shirt as gifts, so we can’t let them go to waste! Have any of you taken your babes to a sporting event? Any hints or tips?
I know as moms we have a tendency to blame ourselves when things don’t go as expected with our kids, and we tend to put ourselves last. So moms, I challenge you – spoil yourself today. Do something just for yourself with no regret or hesitation. Because I know you deserve it. Happy Mother’s Day!
