It's hard to really know what to feel. Happy? Sad?
I told my husband way ahead of today that he needed to make a big deal out of mother's day so that I didn't get sad and so that he didn't get in trouble. LOL. His definition of a "big deal" and mine are not compatible, for the record.
I ordered a mother's day gift for myself yesterday - a ring with Avery's birthstone with her name and birth date engraved on it. It's a "stackable" ring from James Avery, so if I decide that she deserves a sibling, we could always add a ring. I'll post a picture once I get it, but here is a picture to give you an idea of what it'll look like from their website.
|And yes, Avery's room is done in Ladybugs, so this image sold it for me.|
|They have cleverly tried to trap me by not leaving enough space for me to crawl between here.|
|Good job Daddy!|
I also had to rescue Avery after she crawled herself into a little conundrum. Of course, I had to take a picture first. Yes, while she was screaming. Mom of the year - right?
|Put that stupid camera down and get me out of here!|
I have to admit - I keep laughing just seeing the conundrum picture above while trying to finish this post. Does that mean I have to give back my mother's day presents?
All in all, I have to say, it was a very nice First Mommy's Day.
