What a perfectly wonderful Mother's Day I had! I have to tell you, the most honorable Erik really won me over this year. Allow me to brag a bit.
First, he woke up at 6 am, on Sunday. Oh yeah. Do you know what I woke up to hearing? Not screaming kids. Not the Disney Channel. Oh no, I woke up to the sounds of dishes being done. Oh baby. How's that for titillating? (We are a dishes-can-wait-till-morning family, especially on the weekend.)
Then, he brought me breakfast in bed! My girls came into the room also, Reagan saying, "Happy Mother's Day!" and Mati saying, "Mommy, get out of bed!" Needless to say, I ignored Mati. And then, I turned on the TV. That's right, I watched TV, in bed, with my breakfast. Reagan wanted to stay with me, but I told her that we weren't watching Disney, we were going to watch the news. And then I proceeded to do something which I haven't done in years. I watched "Meet the Press"! Oh Glory Be! (Who doesn't love a little politics on Sunday morning?)
Then came the best part. The oh-so-wonderful Erik took the girls with him to work! Oh my goodness! A whole morning just to myself. I gave myself a pedicure. I watched "Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace" (My favorite of the Sunday morning talk shows). I watched last week's episode of "CSI: NY". What a wonderful morning.
Lastly, I went to a tea baby shower in Mesa, and I didn't even mind the drive.
Okay, so that was my awesome Mother's Day. I am a new woman!
