Happy belated Mother’s Day to to all the baby mamas out there.
We were never big Mother’s/Father’s day celebrators in my house. Not that we didn’t love the mommas and the papas, but I feel like I was always at camp or something during the parental holidays, and I think they usually just involved a card or some flowers etc. Now, after my first Mother’s Day, I know that it is the most important and sacred holiday of the entire festive calendar.
Pete made it the most pleasant of the days, since Gracie is kind of self involved right now and rarely takes the time to properly acknowledge all we do for her.
This afternoon Pete is sending me for an afternoon of beauty, although I am not sure I deserve it after the house cat day I had yesterday while he tended to our child.
Some other things on my brain. I am sure you have all seen it, but the new Lonny is ridiculous.
Congrats to Jamie Meares.
Her project featured in the issue was out of control. I have been feeling a little uninspired by the spreads I have seen in mags lately, and this one got me SO excited about decorating again. I talk about her a lot on here because I love what she does over at Furbish, but this was like Miles/Olsen/Ridder/Kemble level for me. Which is mayj.
Shifting gears to something equally mayj.
This mothers day gift to myself is going to change my whole world.
I can take it out and dance with my hands up. I can toss it in the diaper bag, I can clip my keys to it and carry Gracie with it in the store and she can’t reach over my shoulder and empty the contents of my purse on the floor in the check out lane. I simply cannot overstate my excitement about this development.
That is all I have for you this Monday morning.
