just a mom figuring it out one day at a time

Mother’s Day Do-Over

The idea of Mother’s Day brings to mind a day of well-behaved kids and a much needed break for good ole Mom. So like any mother, I too had visions of a glorious day; a day where I could breathe and be thankful. No, it wouldn’t be filled with presents (although they are much appreciated), but rather with well-behaved kids and most notably there would be no tension in the house. No fighting between siblings and no tensions between the kids and the parents. I might have been better off envisioning sugar plums dancing.

On day 3 of a lingering cold, I could not breathe yesterday morning. So that quickly knocked off the day of just “breathing.” Then after playing a game to seek out my presents, between stopping to blow my nose, the fighting began. There were arguments between the kids and then later out right defiance from my daughter. My bubble was completely burst and reality came back. Somehow my daughter did not get the memo that you are supposed to be reeeaaallllyyyy good on Mother’s day. She went to battle with my husband and, as determined as she is, after several hours I think she may have won.

After all that, I am wondering if there is a Mother’s Day rain date coupon that can be exchanged for another day. If there isn’t I think that there should be. All Mothers who did not post about their glorious days on Facebook should be allowed to use it. A Mother’s Day do-over day. It doesn’t have to be a big event, just a day when everyone gets along and behaves. Is that too much to ask for?
