What I REALLY Want For Mother’s Day

May 6, 2015

** important disclaimer – of course i love my kids more than anything on this planet. I love spending time with them and I would throw myself in front of a speeding train for them, but come on mamas, let’s get real about what we really want this Mother’s Day!!

I mean really. Save for the occasional conference or girls trip away, I am with my kids ALL THE TIME. So on the one day of the year that we honour the sanctity of Motherhood, I would really love to be spending time nuturing myself and not my little progeny.

This is what I really want for Mother’s Day this year…

To wake up whenever the heck I feel like it.

Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up fully made-up and ready to burst into song like this?! I have a lot of trouble sleeping at the best of times and I would love to wake up of my own accord on Mother’s Day. I don’t even care if I have only had 4-5 hours of sleep, just let me wake up when I want to wake up…..

To log some good miles on my bike.

No this isn’t me. It’s some cool hipster using a cool filtered lens but you get my drift. Outside. Sunshine. Nature. Bliss.

To be massaged by Bono.

I mean, U2 is in town next week. This could happen right? If not, i’ll take a regular old massage please 🙂

To have a nice dinner out, with lots and lots of wine.

Ok, maybe i’ll let my family in on this one. No cooking, no dishes. Just some yummy food and the two cutest little dudes I know as my dates.

    Yes, yes and yes. Especially to the sleeping in, food & wine parts. Thanks for the real talk.
