My First Mother's Day
Wednesday, May 11, 2016
Unfortunately, Dan had to work this Mother's Day. Unfortunately the shift he's currently on has him working nearly every holiday this year, including Mother's Day. It of course makes my holiday loving heart sad, but we still got to celebrate on Monday together which helped a little.
I was definitely spoiled with gifts this year between flowers, photos of my little one, sweet cards and a gift card to my favorite spa . . . I definitely felt the love. Mother's Day itself didn't turn out to be Harper's best day as she's fighting off a cold & teething so all she wanted all day was mama and would scream when I put her down and left the room. It made nap time and bed time quite difficult, but thankfully my sweet husband made two stops by the house while on the ambulance to give me a break for a few minutes. I am definitely going to miss his ability to stop by so easily once the upcoming changes at his department take place.
Since Dan worked on Sunday, we spent most of the day with my parents which included a morning walk, some pedicures for Mom and I while my Dad watched Harper and then dinner all together. I'm so thankful that my parents live so close, especially on holidays that Dan has to work. Poppy (my dad) helps put smiles on both Harper & my faces with his goofy jokes and dance moves. You can check out my snapchat (libbyboyes) for more Poppy dance appearances. I was so thankful that I got to spend the day with my Mom, who has shown me such an amazing example of what being a Mom means and I'm so thankful Harper gets to witness that too!
