what a beautiful day. It was sunny and I had my wonderful babies all day <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
We started at my girlfriends house. Her children and my children made breakfast for the two of us. I got to have girlfriend time, and also had breakfast made for me. The eggs were good but the toast could have been toasted <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Than my daughter went with her to a soccer game and my son and I had all day. We went up to batting cages and my boy found out that girls can hit a baseball too. He said, "Wow, mom you can hit"<br><br>
Than headed to Friendly's for dinner with the best date in town. I love my kids and yesterday was the best day ever.

I took the boys to visit my mom and my ex-MIL and we just hung out outside all day since it was such a gorgeous sunny day. Nobody did anything specifically for me other than wish me a happy mother's day. but ex-MIL did feed us lunch AND dinner. She is the type of woman who feeds anyone who comes to her house. very generous.<br><br>
the oddest part of the day was that my ex called me to wish me a happy mother's day, tell me that I am a great mom and to keep up the good work. it's just strange because he'd been sooo nice to me for the past month. he used to be nothing but nasty, mad that I was dating before the divorce was final, etc. and now.... what's up with that?

Ugh...I had the worst day. Got in a fight with my mother, dd kept throwing temper tantrums, finally ordered take-out with my brother and when we got home realized they had given me chicken quesadillas instead of the cheese ones I ordered (I'm veg.) so i had to drive all the way back to the restaurant. I started feeling so sorry for myself and was in dd's room un-enthusiastically playing with ehr and reading books and, all of a sudden, she leaned in and gave me a big sloppy kiss with a little smile on her face. She's only 20 months old and isn't talking yet, but I guess she could just sense how I was feeling. I said "Aww...thank you, sweetie. You just made my day." and she leaned in and gave me another kiss. So, in the end it turned out wonderfully. I love my little dd.

After years of pretty lonely, kinda blue Mother's Days, I had a really beautiful one yesterday. This was my first Mother's Day where I have a DP and also the first Mother's Day that DD is old enough to take the initiative all on her own to do some special things and she totally did!<br><br>
DP and DD let me sleep in. DD on her won before DP was awake, set up an elaborate tent with a "throne" inside with all my gifts.Then we three went out to my mom's, where DP met her for the first time. That went really, really well. We planted a bunch of flowers for her, as she is having knee troubles and hasn't been able to plant.<br><br>
Then we went to my sister's and visited with her family and my brother's family. DP met all of these people for the first time. It felt really good and comfortable for me; I feel that is a wonderful affirmation for us.<br><br>
Then we came home. DD had fallen asleep on the way back and she went straight in to bed. Then DP and I talked and then had some lovely, lovely grown up time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
It was a good day. And I felt like I really, really deserved it.

I took the kids to a beautiful gorge near here, then spent the day with my parents and grandmother. It was wonderful, and peaceful, which was exactly what I wanted. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Oooo that sounds nice. Mine was pretty cool here. I slept in, and dd asked my Dad to help<br>
her make french toast. So she came and woke me up, served me breakfast and gave me<br>
my Mother's Day gift that she made at school.<br><br>
(Okay I have to tell you about the present cause it's really cool, and I thought it was a<br>
great craft idea to pass along.) Does anybody remember Shrinky Dinks? Well my dd (at<br>
school) used plain shrinky dink paper, and drew a outline of her hand, then the kids<br>
decorated them how they wanted. Dd made hers look like a stained glass window. It's<br>
really pretty. The art teacher sent home instructions for us to shrink it up, and inclosed<br>
a pin to glue it to so I can wear it.<br><br>
Well after breakfast I went back to bed. Yeah I did. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> then my brother and his gf came<br>
over, and they helped me make a simple dinner that we ate outside. It was nice. It was<br>
also sad, my first Mother's Day without my Mom. I kept thinking about last Mother's Day<br>
and how we were all together and sat on the porch while my Mom opened presents.<br><br>
It was a nice lazy day.

I had a wonderful day with ds. We stayed in bed and read books for about 45 minutes after we woke up. Then we had breakfast, walked to a coffee shop/live music venue to see a special mothers day concert - really more for kids but a great time. DS and I took a nap in the afternoon when we woke up we had to go to the grocery store. Then the best part of the day....when I was strapping ds into his carseat he hugged me and said "I LOVE YOU MOMMY". It was the first time he has ever said it and it was the best present I could ever imagine!

It was great! I laid flat on my back high as a kite on muscle relaxers.<br><br><br><br>
Saturday I tried to show my two year old how to do a summersault. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: Instead of rolling on to my shoulders, I must not of tucked my chin, and I tried to roll on my head. Felt everything compress and have very strange sensations in my right hand. Pt starts thursday, and I am hoping it involves massage!!!!

Well, better late than never...I'm finally reading this thread! OP and the others who had a sweet Mother's Day, I'm so glad. I'm always so happy to read good stuff on this board.<br><br>
I hadn't really planned anything big, but on a whim I took my boy into NYC (we live an hour away) and of all things we rode a speedboat for half an hour...I'd considered the CircleLine boat tour around Manhattan but it's way too long for him; right on the same pier they offered the much shorter speedboat ride, and needless to say, my son was REALLY into that! It wasn't exactly a New York nostalgia tour...they blasted music like Cher's "Believe"....but in a weird way it was really fun! Then we took the train back, got Mexican food and played at the playground. Gorgeous weather and just good old-fashioned fun with my boy.

mine started out pretty rough....I had had a horrible day on the previous Friday, missing family life so much.....but I wound up taking the three boys to the Jersey shore for the day where we rode bikes on the boardwalk and played in the sand, then we went home and had my friend and her four kids over for dinner. It really turned out to be a beautiful, heartfelt day.<br><br>
I'm reminded at these times that none of this is linear, and incredible pain can coexist with incredible hope and joy.<br><br>
Love to you all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
