Tomorrow is my only "special day" of the year. My birthday has been nonexistent ever since Kevie was born so Mother's Day is all I have. I don't mind; I like having him as my birthday buddy. :-)
I've had to work on Mother's Day for the past two years so I'm kind of looking forward to tomorrow. Granted, I would get off two hours early on my previous Mother's Days, but still...it's not the same. I don't remember what I did in 2007, but last year I got to watch Alicia Keys! It's so nice knowing that I don't have to work tomorrow. That is a gift in itself.
Mother's Day 2009? No work = so far so good. :-)
On Friday, Kevin surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of paper flowers, a card, his hand prints, and a coffee mug. I just got back from a dinner date with Kev, Boo, and Niki. The lions were perfect angels and people actually stopped to admire how well behaved they were. Ha, fooled them didn't they? I didn't realize that our dinner was Mother's Day-esque until the waitress greeted me. :-)
Even though I have yet to enjoy my special Sunday, Mother's Day has been pretty awesome so far. Being a mother is the best job I've ever had.
