Here's What I Don't Want

I completely escaped the whole 'breakfast in bed for Mom on Mother's Day' experience today.  Due to crazy sport schedules, and late nights that led to sleepovers, I only have one snuggly bug 5 year old this morning.  He's happy to have cheerios and watch cartoons, and let me snuggle with him.  Ahhh, this is bliss.

I'm so glad that I don't have to endure the whole giant, crummy, bad coffee and eternal waiting breakfast in bed this year.  I'm just not a good enough actress to pull that off.  I tried last year, and the kids thought I didn't like the blueberry pancakes (which, I didn't, I have NEVER liked blueberry pancakes), but that wasn't the reason for my acting job.  I just don't like pretending to enjoy a giant breakfast that is making my bed crummy and sticky.  I'm a coffee for breakfast kind of girl.  And then breakfast, maybe at 10 am, and that would be some oatmeal or a simple bowl of cereal. 

I hope you are having a wonderful mother's day, whatever you are doing today!

I agree! This may be the best mother's day ever so far! I still have one sleeping and it's 9:30!

I'm with you. I tried very hard all day to endure their "Kindness" which was kind of tough. I just wanted to be left alone!
