What I Wish For the Mothers this Mother’s Day

Mothers have one of the toughest jobs hands down! They deal with so much snot, tears and excrement! Whining, sleepless nights, fighting…not to mention the fact that they are always putting these little tyrants before themselves. Mothers definitely deserve a minimum of a day if not a whole year of thanks, pampering and relaxation. So Mothers, this is what I wish for you this year.

I wish you a morning where you get to sleep in unknown to you and wake up fully refreshed. Not the 6 hours of sleep in a row like you usually get (which I am jealous of HA!). I hope that you get that much needed afternoon nap without waking up to someone climbing on you, screaming, or a crisis occurring.

I don't want to sleep like a baby. I just want to sleep like my husband.

I wish you a day of real pampering! I am not talking about you slapping on nail polish in between bedtime and passing out! Or that quick shave in the shower where you miss a whole patch and hope no one notices. Or the kid version of a massage. I am talking about going to a salon where you don’t even look at your phone to enjoy being fully pampered from head to toe! When you leave, you will look and feel like a supermodel.

I wish you a whole year of body positivity! I wish you the best outfit with accessories that make you feel like a million bucks. One that hides all the new “Mommy” insecurities that you have now. I wish you the perfect non-Mom bun hair day with make-up you actually had the time to apply properly.

I wish you a morning where you can finish your coffee while it is STILL HOT! I wish you the ability to finish a meal while it is still hot while also not being required to share a bite as well. Bathroom breaks granted without seeing children or hearing them call for you either. The ability to brush your teeth without running out of the bathroom to make sure the house isn’t coming down.

I wish you a clean home that you didn’t have to straighten yourself. I wish your children to clean up their toys. Your husbands cleans the bathroom and puts the clothes away as well. I wish that your family is able to keep the house perfect for over a day without you having to lift a finger or raise your voice to keep it that way.

I wish you extra patience with your children. Extra hugs, kisses, and snuggles. No child fights to deal with (or husband antics either for that matter). I wish you a day of love and laughter with your whole family!

I wish that everyone says THANK YOU!!!!!! I hope they all show their appreciation to you for everything you do for them. For we all know that it is Moms that rule the world and no one would be where they are supposed to me without them.

Here’s to you Mamas!! I hope you have the most perfect day full of everything you need to feel like a million bucks – because you deserve it ladies! I plan on enjoying the beach, an adult beverage and getting my brunch on. What are your plans for Mother’s Day??
