Spent mother’s day at my in-laws this year, which is fairly common. Since my mom has us most of the time, most of the less major (read not Christmas) shared holidays go to his mom. I don’t mind, but it does make it seem strange when people tell me happy mother’s day. I tend to forget that it’s a day for me too.

Nothing too different happened to or for me this mother’s day. I’m still holding out for those years when the kids know what it is and I start getting little hand-made cards and crafts or maybe flowers…actually from the kids.

This year however I got flowers from my husband and 3 daddy prompted happy mother’s days from the kids. From Grant, Happy Mommy Day! From Jena, Happy Mommy! From Jacob, mama, his first ever, and this year, that works for me just fine.
