All I Want For Mother’s Day

by MARIA on May 12, 2012

Mother’s Day is this weekend and that means that I will be spoiled and pampered and regaled all day Sunday.

Probably not.

I’ve been married a LONG time (11+ years) and a mom for 8+ years, and I’ve learned that the secret to a happy (LASTING) marriage and life is to LOWER ONE’S EXPECTATIONS.

Now let me just say that I have what I really want for Mother’s Day:

However, I’m always open to helping the husband along with a list or a strategically placed catalog because he’s always so desperate to please me (insert sarcastic cackles here).

SO, I’ve decided to share a few ideas of what I would LOVE for Mother’s Day.

  • I would love to sleep in. I do not exist before 9 a.m.
  • I would LOVE to go out for breakfast for some Eggs Benny because, YUM.
  • I would love something from the kids that they made/drew/wrote for me. (I know I’m getting this one because they both informed me NOT to look under their beds or I would “be arrested.”)
  • Also, if you happen to be anywhere near a Roots store, best husband ever, I like this one:

Oh and look at the Links of London shiny things:

Oh and anything from Chuck works for me but look at him sparkle:

You are welcome, husband.



May you get the love, recognition and respect you all deserve!

I love that you have minions. Sadly mine are no longer minions at 12 and 8. Apparently I missed the revolt. Your list is perfect. Perhaps if you printed it out on poster-sized paper he would get the hints.

Maybe I should print it out and staple it to his forehead?!

Ha! I’ve learned to lower my expectations too, as my husband is working and there is a ton of housecleaning and yard work to do! But I know that I will cherish my “minions” and apparently in grade 4, you no longer make your mom anything. That has left me very sad and cherishing the one’s that came before them even more. At least I have my 5 and 7 year old…they also have the stash under their beds! Have a Happy Mothers Day Maria!
