who elses wishes they got this for mothers day & whay would you do with it?

A day of peace. No kids, no nothing. Just you and whatever you feel like doing. My son was a total pain today. If I had had a day to myself I could have gotten a lot of packing done (we are moving in 2 weeks), and taken a nap in PEACE!

  • Remember, ladies, this too shall pass ... one day they will be all grown up and those days will be just a memory. With every age there is good, and bad. Every age. Mine are all teens and starting to leave the next. I can take naps when I'm not working, but I do remember those other days of longing desperately for a break as if they were yesterday. I remember my mom always saying don't wish your life away -- but I agree, a peaceful day -- ah, Nirvanah! :o)

  • I would have liked an entire day to myself. My kid was okay today though, actually. Could I like get that in the form of a gift certificate redeemable any day I want?

  • i would have loved it. and i would have spent it cleaning house and getting baby stuff ready. this one will be here in 10 days and i still have soo much to do but every time i start messing with baby stuff my daughter starts pulling more out after i put it away and today everything she has said has been in the whining form. driving me nuts!

  • I got this! I guess it helps to have a sinus infection and to be puking non stop for the last 7 weeks! My SO hung out with my son and they had a fun day while I vegged in bed ALL day! It was AWESOME!

  • That's what my Dad used to do for my mom. She would get lilacs, a card, then he would take all of the kids out for the whole day! My Dad was the man! I wish I got flowers and a day to myself.

  • I'm sicker than a dog, with a sick 4 month old and a terror of a 3 yr old. I dont care if I had a day of peace. I just wish we all had been feeling ok. And it also would've been nice if dh told me Happy Mother's day :(

  • I was wishing I had that too. I took the kids over to my moms to wish her a Happy Mother's day and she took the kids outside for an hour and a half and told me to lay on the couch and watch TV or take a nap. It was very nice. Now I'm going to take a bath and climb in bed.
