Happy Mother’s Day 2012 Linkup

by Susan

Happy Mother’s Day!

We hope you’re enjoying your special day. What are you doing to relax and take time for yourself?

Yesterday I spent lots of “me” time… I went for a walk, sat in the sun and went to a movie.

Today I’m with the kids. We’re heading to the park, then out for pizza and gelato.

Janice unfortunately is battling a bad cold and is spending her day in bed and her kids are joining my clan. Lots of extra fun (read chaos) for me and a little down time for her.

We want to hear how you spent your special day. If you posted about Mother’s Day, link up below…

Happy Mother’s Day ladies. I received my first nomination for a blogger award! Talk about stunned…

Today I’m with the kids waiting for hubby and mom in law to get back from running errands. :)

I had a fabulous Mother’s Day which I hadn’t planned to write about until I saw the linkup. I needed to share how I’ve relaxed my expectations and learned to share them clearly with my husband. A friend of mine made her dh absolutely miserable yesterday because she didn’t take the time to share what she wanted and just took her feelings out on him. I’ve been there and done that, and it doesn’t work. :(

We had a very laid back and relaxed day. I wasn’t “off duty” at all, but it was still a nice day. It certainly helps to have a realistic view of what your family is capable of handling and doing!
