I could not of asked for a better day today..We spent the day at my parents house. My husband and step-father went out and picked up 30lbs of Lobster & 10lbs of Mussels for a Mother's Day treat. My Mom is not a big fan of Seafood, and I used to love Shellfish,untill about 4 years ago when I started to develop and allergy to it. If I even shell a lobster I find Myself Violently ill. Being Pregnant this Mothers Day I stayed far away from the seafood.... I have to admit though that I thoroughly enjoyed watching the boys devour the Lobster, something about them being aloud to be messy and eat with their fingers made them enjoy their meal even more.
Mom andI went out for banana splits at a local dilly bar, we even brought Banana splits back for the boys, and the husbands. They enjoyed Mothers Day as well..
I figure fathers day weekend will be a great weekend for mom and I to get to the Spa!!!
I love being a mom....Today I found myself thinking about how lucky I am. I got to watch my husband and boys laugh and giggle at the lobsters crawling on the deck (before they went in the pot). I had time with each one of my boys for a snuggle,tickle and a giggle... I find that being a mom has made me appreciate my own Mom so much more, and I love the Nanna she is to my boys. I also appreciate the small day to day joys of being a Mommy more and more everyday.
Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there !!!
