Welcome to the 50,000th Mother’s Day re-cap post on the World Wide Web!
I knew my hubby, and by extension, my little guy, would do something fantastic. Hubby is the best present giver in the history of the world. He always knocks gifts out of the park with his uncanny ability to figure out just what I want without ever asking.
I had this feeling on Saturday that something would go awry, but thought it was just based on last Saturday, when a combination of going to bed way to late and my child sleeping almost 0 hours all night left me completely exhausted on Sunday. And even knowing that might be the case, I stayed up late again on Saturday night because in my mind I’m still 25? Who knows.
Baby was up pretty much all night with a cold. Hubby took the first shift, I took the second, and then around 6:45 I decided just to park in the recliner in Baby Blogworthy’s room. A couple hours later I woke up feeling pretty alright.
Hubby woke up and we decided I should open my presents right away since the baby was in a good mood.
First was a new charm for my charm bracelet.

And of course it made me do this:
That’s the ugly cry face and Baby Blogworthy with his mute button saying, “eh.”
After that the day went downhill. Baby B has a cold, so he was fussy and miserable all day. Hubby started feeling nauseous and ended up with a fever. Me? I became more and more exhausted. With only four hours of sleep, good will runs out pretty quickly. Every time I’d lay down for a nap while he was napping, he’d wake up 45 minutes later almost as soon as I’d really fall asleep.
By the end of the day I was spent, especially since he refused to fall asleep even though he was CLEARLY tired. Why babies refuse naps, I’ll never know.
So that was my crappy Mother’s Day. The gifts were awesome, the rest of the day not so much.
Honestly though? Even bad days seem a little bit better when you have this going on:
How was your Mother’s Day? If you have furbabies, did they get you anything? If you’re dad, did you spoil your wife?
