Happy Mother's Day

We got home late last night and I was too exhausted due to my pregnancy and a long trip to the zoo to post this until today. I had a wonderful Mother's Day with my sweet son and loving husband. I love everything about being Amari's mom. Words cannot even express my undying love for that boy. He means the world to me and the fact that I get to be a mother again makes me even more ecstatic and thrilled about motherhood. I mentioned in my Mother's Day Eve post about why motherhood is so important to me. I thrive to be the mother that my mother wasn't for me and my siblings. When I first found out that I was pregnant with Amari I was both scared that I would fail as mother and hopeful at the same time. I have met a lot of wonderful mother's throughout my lifetime and have tried to incorporated what I learned from them into my own life and philosophy about motherhood.  Being a mother isn't easy; mommy skills always need to be worked on and polished. I can only aim to be the best that I can be.

I woke bright and early to prepare lunches for an adventure that Trevor and Amari wouldn't tell me about. It was a surprise. I do like my surprises. Normally I'm the type of person who likes homemade gifts because I feel that they are more meaningful than store bought ones but this year I asked for a new blender because the old one broke and with summer just around the corner I would like to make my boys milkshakes and smoothies for the warm days ahead. I was more than geeked when I unwrapped my gift from Amari and Trev and had a new blender. :] My cards were sweet and endearing and I have them displayed on my kitchen table until I put them in my keepsake box in a week or so. After opening my gift we all loaded up the car and headed on our way. We ended up going to the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma. I have not been to the zoo in years and was excited about experiencing the the zoo with my son for the first time (which I'll happily write about later in the week). After our four hour visit to the zoo we headed home for a few hours of relaxation before heading over to Papa and Nana's house for a family dinner. It was wonderful relaxing outside and looking out at the lake while having conversation with family and enjoying the eighty degree weather and sunshine outside on the deck. Mother's Day was very low key, fun-filled, and I enjoyed every moment of it with my loving husband and sweet son. Without the two of them I would not be a mother. So Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out there. You are loved, cherished, and adored. Your hard work, love, and dedication goes unnoticed by your loved ones.
