I think that each mother should get to pick which day she wants to celebrate Mother's Day. I had a good Mother's Day today, but yesterday was less stressful and more fun so I would consider that my Mother's Day! Yesterday I spent time with my kids in a fun relaxing way and then went on a fun date with my hubbie. I think that at first Diego thought that I was a little crazy when I told him that I wanted to ride our bikes (I got a new one for Mother's Day) down to campus and have dinner and then ride home. We had a great time, but my bum is still a little sore! We ate at this little international restaurant called Monique's Corner and it was great. We even left Lila with the babysitter for the first time and she did great. I love Diego and am happy that he always goes along with my silly ideas even though sometimes they don't turn out that great...this time it did.
There were a lot of great things about today (actual mother's day)...let me list a few in no particular order...Waking up to my sweet Lila's precious smile, Aitana telling me happy Mother's Day about 20 times, Diego making me breakfast (not that he doesn't already do it often) and buying me the cookbook that I had mentioned I wanted, talking to my mom on the phone like I do every day (usually twice a day!), the little box of chocolates that they gave all the mothers at church, listening to the primary kids sing at church, Lauryn snuggling up to me at church and any time I am sitting still, listening to Ryan tell me exactly what happened in detail only understanding one word he said: "broke", watching Jacob play with Lila and Ryan, seeing all the women at church that I love and admire and picking out the one trait that I admire about them and would love to steal from them, listening to Jacob and Lauryn perform at their viola recital, eating the treats at the reception after the viola recital that I know I will regret tomorrow, reading to my girls curled up to me in bed, getting one last sweet Lila smile before I lay her down for bed, getting a sweet kiss from my wonderful husband who picked up the house after a crazy busy day.....OK I have a lot to be grateful for...what a great Mother's Day! Oh how blessed I am to be a mother 5 times over!
