Mother’s Day is right around the corner.
I want to go on a cruise.
No one is gonna let that happen.
Instead I will likely get to walk around the mall and look at stores everyone else in my family hates while DudeDad gives the Dudes the don’t-you-dare-whine-it’s-Mother’s-Day eyes.
And then they will take me to lunch where I will order a salad and a sweet tea and then I will go to Zumba. Because it’s Mother’s Day and I want to!
I will spend the remainder of the day watching them play baseball and basketball and scream-and-run in the yard over the BBQ chicken DudeDad makes for us.
Probably they will give me a sweet gift and a handmade card. There won’t be chocolate involved because they’ll know I’ll want to save those calories for my birthday (it’s 5 days after Mother’s Day this year).
It will be as predictable as it will be perfect.
Just like the people who made me a mama in the first place (go on, try to guess who’s who)…
Not sure what to give the mama in your life (or what to ask for)?
