Happy Day After Mother's Day!!!
Hope all of you had a lovely day. This was my second Mother's Day. First Mother's Day outside from brunch we didn't know what to do. I was still nursing and Leo was only 2 months old so I couldn't be gone for too long.
This time we had a whole day planned out for a trip to Astoria, brunch, beer garden. But then the weather forecast was for thunderstorms so we re-scheduled for next weekend.
Even so it wasn't too bad. I got to sleep in a bit and Marcelo took care of Leo on his own for the majority of the day. We went to the park and took some family photos. Then we watched the SNL Mother's Day episode from the night before together.
The best part of the day was I woke up to text messages from other Mom's wishing me a Happy Mother's Day. I sent some out to my friends with children and kept getting more throughout the day.
This is a totally new thing and I love it! It means: A) We have both hands free to text at the moment (YAY!). B) Getting and giving words of appreciating to fellow Mom's is like getting an awards from your peers. We're the only ones who can really understand what it's like to be a Mom and just how hard of a job it is. To get a text like that from another Mom means your doing a great job and Mom-to-Mom you're awesome!
If you didn't get a chance to reach out to a fellow Mom yesterday pick up your phone and send a text. It will really make her day.
