We have 3 mothers in my family - my mom, my sister, and myself.
Every year we go through the same dilemma . . . how to celebrate Mother’s Day. We usually all spend it together but it’s so hard to agree on what to do.
My Mom is pretty flexible. She’s had over 40 Mother’s Day celebrations and all she really wants now is peace, quiet, and someone else to cook dinner.
My sister wants to go out for dinner in a somewhat nice restaurant. Since her kids are a little older now, they can pretty much entertain themselves.
Me? I want take-out from my favorite restaurant. It may sound a little boring but with Baby Bug still being very young, going out to dinner is not all it’s cracked up to be. Even though DH tries his best to help out, if I’m within a 100 foot radius, I’m the only one she wants. It’s hard to enjoy my special meal if all I’m doing is feeding and cleaning and carrying and entertaining The Bug. Getting take-out works for me — no cooking, no washing dishes, no crying babies.
What about you? What’s your ideal Mother’s Day celebration?
