Happy Mother's Day Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your day!
Recently I came across this image on Facebook about what mothers really wanted for Mother's Day:
I have to say, I don't entirely agree with this pie chart and I really don't like that it has been posted with statistics which would imply that research was done & that this is an accurate depiction of what Mother's want. In fact, the largest chunk on there (the day off from parenting) is the absolute LAST thing I would want my husband to give me on Mother's Day.
This morning my 10 month old (who normally sleeps through the night) woke up around 4 am and wouldn't go back to sleep. Every time I placed him in his crib he immediately started crying. In that moment I was exhausted and frustrated and really, really wanted sleep, but honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. My cute little crybaby made me a mother and I couldn't be more thankful.
Mother's Day is a day to celebrate motherhood, not take a break from it. So, take the day & enjoy your time with the ones that made you a Mama [and maybe just take the day off from all the laundry, the cleaning, & the cooking;)].
Here is a revision of the pie chart to show what I believe to be a more accurate depiction!
