As this holiday approaches, I see signs, displays, and cards on our walks through town. I had been trying not to think about it much but today the gears started turning.
My first Mother’s Day as a mom, I was a bit out of it with a high needs newborn. I was excited to finally be a mom and didn’t care that I wasn’t celebrating it in any way. I did get a couple cards from friends and some comments on Facebook, so that was nice. I don’t know what I did for the second one. I probably tried to do something just us and enjoy the day a little more than normal.
This year, I have no plans. Wallace doesn’t have a daycare or other parent to make some cute craft and card with. He isn’t old enough to make something on his own. I have no plans with my mom (my step dad is in the hospital again) and don’t have any family traditions around it.
Instead of getting down about not having anyone to celebrate with and make me feel appreciated and special, I decided to turn it around. I can tell other moms how amazing I think they are!
