Mother's Day

This Sunday is Mother's Day.  The 4th time I have celebrated as a mom.  This year I am doing something fabulously unremarkable.  Working.  As a doctor.  As a mom.

And there is a reason for this.  At first I was a little bummed that I would not be relaxing in bed on Mother's Day.  Being served coffee and bon bons by my 2 favorite little waitresses.  Doing exactly what I choose on that ONE day.  [Well I wish I wasn't missing the Mother's Day pilates class...]

Then I realized, I choose this day.  I choose my life.  I choose to spend the days with my girls.  And my husband.  Breaking up little fights.  Tending to tantrums.  Soothing boo-boo's.  Allowing him to workout.  Making dinner.  NOT cleaning up. This is what I do.  And I love it.  So I should celebrate it.

My girls have spent the week doing special projects in school to celebrate Mother's Day.  Today was "Muffins with Mom" at school and I got a special picture of me and Reagan (above) and a beautiful vase from Whitney.  I love them.  I'll put them up in the office until I move them into storage bins that house old artwork.  Store the memories to show them later "what they used to do when they were little".  They don't understand Mother's Day.  To them, everyday is a "me" day.  What a beautiful thing.  To be that blissfully naive is refreshing.  And even on Mother's Day its not about me, its about them.

To me, everyday has a "Mother's Day Moment".  It may be when Reagan tells me "she loves me so much, I just want to keep you forever".  Or when she blurts out "I just love you, Mama".  Or when Whit gives me millions of wet, slobbery kisses.  Or laughs a great belly laugh.  These little things make my day and in that moment I celebrate being a MOTHER.  Everyday.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL MY SPECIAL MOMMY FRIENDS!

How will you celebrate Mother's Day Sunday? or Anyday?
