A belated Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Moms out there! I hope you enjoyed your day and didn’t end up with any Bad Mother’s Day Gifts!
I got a new vacuum.
No, no it’s okay. I asked for a new vacuum. It’s totally an appropriate gift when you ask for it.
I also got my husband to accompany me to Target on Saturday with all three kids so we could buy new bike accessories like helmets, pads, etc., and because my husband hates shopping with the kids as much as I do, I was able to toss some other “gifts for me” in the cart without any protest. His goal is to get in and out as quickly as possible, and mine is to shop Super Market Sweep style throwing as much shit in the cart as possible. Scored a new deck umbrella, a couple indoor & outdoor decor items, books for the kids and a new water slide for the back yard.
Even though the kids wanted a new water toy, I was the one who picked this one, The Wave Crasher, out. I figure if I have to be outside supervising, I might as well get something that I want to play with too.
So when we got home, I broke it in.
Move over kids, let Mama show you how it’s done:
…like a boss.
So there you have it…all in all a great weekend of testing the weight limit of toys, teaching the kids about water displacement, and an entire weekend spent outside neglecting laundry and chores.
Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day too. You deserve it!
