MOM LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY DAY (All I want for Mother’s Day and a $50 gift card for one of you!) #ShareTheLuv

What do I want for Mother’s Day?


I’m going to let myself dream here; a dream of Mother’s Day without dirty socks on the couch, wet towels on beds, and entire soccer cleet-prints worth of mud on our floors. I dream I can have this dream without anyone on the internet commenting you’ll miss those socks wet towels  and mud cleet prints one day!! I know. I will! Let’s dream this Mother’s Day and not sob over fleeting youth.

I dream my children will voluntarily lay down their screens, take up fresh air and beg me for a family hike.

I dream for quiet–quiet play, quiet reading, quiet board games–but not the eerily muffled quiet of one boy smothering another boy.

I dream of everything feeling orderly and complete–freshly painted walls, closets purged of plastic fads gone by, self-cleaning windows.

I dream of winning a landscaping lottery that comes with lifetime maintenance included. I don’t need a Koi pond, maybe fewer ant hills and divots smaller than manhole covers.

I dream of a movie everyone wants to watch that does not involve hand-held action vertigo; likely a musical, and likely my family will beg me to sing aloud and please sing even louder, Mom!

I dream my children will use their youtube time not to watch gaming tutorials but bathroom cleaning tutorials. Instead of MOM DID YOU GO TO THE STORE they will greet me with MOM LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY DAY AT SCHOOL, WHAT I LEARNED AND WHO INTERESTS ME IN GREAT DETAIL!

In truth, I already have what I want for Mother’s Day: the golden age of parenting that is toilet-trained children. But for those of you who do not, I give you the next best thing–diaper savings. Luvs knows that parenting can be hard and expensive, so they believe great diapers should also be a great value.

    I want a hotel room for Mothers Day where I can sit and on the bed and eat junk food from the vending machine with no one judging me. I can sleep as little or as much as I want and move at my own pace. I can have my lap and body to myself with no fluids on me! I love my kids and being a mom but once a year I want my body back!

    3 of mine are grown and flown, and no, I DO NOT miss those socks. So don’t worry. I want the house decluttering fairy to arrive Saturday night as I sleep, so I wake up in a perfectly orderly, uncluttered house. Not clean, just uncluttered. Is that so much to ask?

    Ann–I loved all of your “wants.” Your kids will grow up, and then the real fun begins–being a grandparent. I hope you have a great Mother’s Day and a wonderful summer.

    (I was a LTYM performer two years ago, and was chosen again for the 2017 St. Louis show, so I KNOW I’m going to have a great Mother’s Day. ;)

    For mother’s day i would like a chance to have special 1:1 time with each of my 3 children, time outside together as a family, quiet time alone with a book, and a date with the dad that made it all possible.

    I just want to visit my son and grandchildren in North Carolina.

    I want my daughter home from college and my son to take a break from AP exam studying, and I want them to spend this precious downtime from their educations in the kitchen making brunch so that I do not have to do the cooking for my mother-in-law…and I can sleep in, get a pass on Sunday morning sex, eat a good meal and then spend the afternoon hanging out poolside, listening to my kids stories, watching them connect and being grateful that I’ve raised these awesome people who so kindly cleaned the kitchen after they made the meal and just brought me my third mimosa.
