Mother's Day 2.0

On Sunday Husband and I got up before the kids did (Ned slept until after 7:30 am) and he made us all breakfast and we invited my dad over since he is an early bird. My mom, not so much, so she came after the kids and I napped and put them to bed while Husband and I went to dinner. It's nice that she thought spending her Mother's Day with her grandkids was a present.

I think Bumpa would love it if one of his grandchildren became a doctor. Penny may be in the running:

I actually did most of the childcare on Sunday - took them to the park by myself, made them dinner, etc. Husband did some yard work and went grocery shopping. I really didn't mind but I was laughing a little at all the kids at the park with their dads because all the moms wanted for Mother's Day was a break. I fully appreciate that - especially for stay-at-home moms.

Although it was a fenced in park I did have to be vigilant about my daredevils - even Penny fell off a few high platforms thinking they were stairs. Both kids praticed walking down the stairs, refusing all assistance and Ned has started doing the same at home. It's a bit heart-attack inducing.

At dinner Husband and I discussed baby names and tried to remember what it would be like with an infant again.

Sounds like a nice day, especially the nap part :)

I felt like I got a lot of dirty looks when we went to Brueggers, like "why isn't that mom some place nicer or at home by herself reading a People magazine??" Little did they know that before that we were at Home Depot, buying a deep freezer (my Mother's Day gift). Haha! We all do this day differently, I guess. Glad you had fun!
