In defence of unmade beds or how I spend mothers day


"Always make your bed first thing in the morning"
my mother would say"Make sure your bathroom and kitchen are really clean . That is the sign of a good housewife . Anybody can keep their drawing room clean"

But if an made-up bed spells a on-top-of-things-ness

An unmade bed which has had a few hours of morning snuggles, tea, book reading and general lollygagging spells pure happiness


Its always seemed ironic to me, that one of the things that most mothers of young children (including me) want on Mothers day, is a day away from their children.

This mothers day , I thought that I would do something different

I would simply enjoy being a mother as much as I could

So we lolled away the morning

And jumped away the afternoon


We ate pancakes( me ) and cookies ( r) for lunch

I talked to my beloved mother for a long time

The sun came out for a change

DH got me flowers, pancakes and a crazyexpensive instrument of torture( hair straightener) that I so coveted

And a lovely mothers day it was

Happy mothers day to all you wonderful mothers

So glad you had a good Mother's Day. I spent mine with my son as well as another friend and her two boys.

While we were out, my husband did the dishes and two loads of laundry, so it was a pretty great day all around. :)

I understand that mother's day is emotionally.. very important, but I dont do much,it was another day.
My DD almost 5 year old was asked a couple of questions about mom(me).. I will post all of the questions and answers later but one of the questions was
How old is mom
Divya's answer My mommy is 100 years old, she is the oldest mommy in the world.Yay!!
