Last year was my first ever official Mother’s Day as a mama, and it was pretty hectic. We dedicated our daughter at church and then hosted a little party after. So I didn’t get to sleep in because we had to be at church early. And even before that, I had a bunch of preparations to get ready. The child dedication coincided with Autumn’s half birthday, so I made a half birthday cake for her (but mostly for us because she wasn’t eating cake yet at 6 months old 😉 ). It was a busy, but nice, mother’s day!
This year was very different. I hosted absolutely nothing! Well, at least I didn’t host anything on the day of. I didn’t get to sleep in because Autumn did not get the memo that mama’s like to sleep in on Mother’s Day. We had breakfast as a little family, went to church and then spent the day with both our own moms. We had lunch with my mom and my side of the family, and then we had dinner with Andrew’s mom and his side of the family. And, we gave them their gifts! I planned (with my two sisters-in-law) a paint night for all the moms and moms-in-law! It’s not going to happen for another month, but it’s something that I’m hosting here, and I’ll be able to participate with my new little bean. I’m pretty excited!
This Mother’s Day was pretty great. I didn’t cook, I didn’t clean, and I got to have a bath with a bath bomb, my book & chocolate to finish the day. I didn’t get to sleep in, but that was totally fine by me!
How was your Mother’s Day?
