7 things I do NOT want on Mother’s Day

Yes, I’m a mother.  Yes, there happens to be a day of the year that is set out to specifically celebrate having my insides exposed in an operating room and bringing life into this world but I have to openly admit all the things that I do NOT want to experience on Mother’s Day.

Here are 7 things that I do NOT want on Mother’s Day;

1. Do NOT make me breakfast.  I don’t like breakfast, serve me a good burger, doesn’t even have to be fancy, Five Guys will do or steak a potatoes, you know what?  Scratch them both, give me something good to drink (wink, wink).

2. Do NOT buy me any jewelry that has MOM stamped on it.  I don’t want your birthstones all on one piece of jewelry either, not unless you were all born in the month of April and I get a carat for each child and year.

3.  Do NOT put a tiara in my hair while I am sleeping.  Exhibit A, Mother’s Day 2014.

4.  Do NOT have a show at your school that I have to attend. Please, please, I will live a complete life if I never hear, Wind beneath my wings, again. Promise. I’ll be okay.

5.  Do NOT get me a spa certificate unless you are also booking childcare on the date of my appointment.  I have so many spa certificates that have never been used.  One day… One day…  How relaxed can I be when I am being messaged by the little people in my life because they are arguing over who farted?

6.  Do NOT wake me up early.  I’m not a regular mom. I’m a less than mom. I will not feel an ounce of guilt for not spending the first 12-14 hours of Mother’s day in my sleep. You want me to be happy?  Let me sleep for a long, long, long time.

7.  Do NOT make a fuss over Mother’s Day for me (Husband, this does not pertain to you. You get me supermarket flowers this year, you will suffer the consequences).  I’m a mother and that usually comes along with the title of being selfless. Love me, tell me I’m perfect and give me the tightest hugs that have ever existed.
