I say this half-joking, half-serious. Know what I think every mother should get on Mother's Day?
The whole house to themselves for an eight hour stretch... with no expectation of accomplishing anything. I just want to lie on my own couch, watch DVRed shows, eat food without interruption... you know... do what I want to do.
Now with that said, the problem with me even if I did have that perfect Mother's Day, I would run around like a mad, crazy woman trying to accomplish as many "to do" tasks that never get done because of my kiddos are forever "all up in my Chili" when I try to complete a project, or clean a closet out, or reorganize something. If I had time alone, I would go-go nonstop until someone (aka: Daddy) brought them home.
The other "flaw" with my Perfect Mother's Day idea is that I want to spend my day (and every day) with my three beautiful children and my husband. As much as I want a break and time to myself, there is no other place that I would rather be than with my crew.
