Mothers Day Fantasy Weekend!

Bestie Natalia and I always talk about our fantasy Mother Days where the kids act perfect, look perfect, the sun is shining, no one throws a tantrum and you have perfect lip gloss that stays on magically throughout the day. This never happens. Something always happens to break the fantasy.

This past weekend however, I reached fantasy Mothers Day status. We drove to Laguna Beach and after a peaceful lunch together where everyone fawned over my well behaved kids, we made our way down to the beach.

The weather was perfect, the kids played in the sand and giggled and laughed. At one point, as I watched the Mr. and Landon making a sandcastle, I looked down at my darling baby Coco, content in my arms, with her sandy feet crossed. It was heaven I tell you. My little family all together, everyone healthy and happy. Isn't that what we all want for Mothers Day?

The next morning, as if the weekend wasn't fantastic enough, the kids slept in as I was served breakfast in bed. I sat there enjoying my Banana Bread that neighbor Sheila had dropped off and watched Betty White on SNL. I was thrilled.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day. Did it live up to your fantasy expectations? I know it's a rare and precious thing when it does!!

Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day. My two daughters were sick with colds, so we couldn't even take them anywhere. Boo.

Wasn't Betty White great on SNL?! Loved that they brought the old cast mates back.

I'm so glad you had a great day! My husband was out of town for a family obligation in GA (that I didn't want to attend) so I was solo with the boys. It was, however, a great day of church and working in the yard!

Glad you were able to write about it... so you can remember and relish it if you have a Mother's Day that is slightly less than perfect! ;)

Oh, and don't you just love getting compliments on your children's behavior and manners? I live for those!!! Wonderful you!

I loved reading about your delightful Mother's Day, but I must admit I was holding my breath afraid that you were about to write about something that marred it. I'm so glad nothing did! You deserve a fabulous Mother's Day, you fabulous mom!

I love Laguna Beach! That was always our hangout beach when I was growing up in Newport. Glad you enjoyed it!

I asked for an afternoon of family mountain biking. Great, only we had showers throughout the afternoon and ended up biking through mud that was hard for Sophie to ride in. She kept asking "Are you enjoying your day, Mama?!" indicating that she was not. I said "Yes, damnit, I am!!"
