Weekend-in review.

Unlike last year, my very first Mother's Day, I wasn't on a plane traveling. I wasn't emotional when the flight attendant said the standard "Thanks to all the mom's out there" over the loud speaker and I haven't been watching the Johnson and Johnson commercial on repeat, either. I know I'll be sleeping a full 8-hours tonight. I know Cooper will wake up at 6AM no matter what time he goes to bed. I know what to expect tomorrow.

I know myself more as a mom this year.

"Mothers are all slightly insane." -J. D. Salinger

groceryThis year, year two with child, it's kinda all about the humor. I mean, it's funny right? Us moms, our day-in, hilarious. The other day,  Cooper was in his crib (sorry if you are faint of heart), pooped and then took his diaper off. I'm sure you can imagine what happened next. He was terrified! I mean, mom, what is that stuff in my diaper?

Another sweet mama I know shared this article which is sort-of perfect. Now I can't relate to all of it, but I especially appreciate the part where you get to use the facilities in private. Warning: it's a little swear-filled. Just take-out the F-word and reads pretty hilarious.

Ten Things I Really F'Ing Want for Mother's Day


I love Mother's Day, but it's kind-of a tease. I mean, here we have one day (let's be honest, weekend) all about mom, and then we have to wake up Monday to a week that's not at all about us? Totally unfair. You better believe I took FULL advantage.

Saturday, we hiked and had dinner with friends...





And Sunday I slept in til 8 y'all. For real. And woke up to THE most perfect breakfast of all times. Thanks hubs

Then mommy got a few hours to herself and Daddy took Coop to visit his great-grandma, Genny.

You know those times when you don't want to be anywhere else in life, other than right where you are? It was that kind-of weekend.

When Cooper turned one, my mom sent me this page out of a book she had, and obvi I was a weepy mess. It describes my perfect wish for this little boy, which if it boils down to one word, is love.


I hope all those human mamas, pet mamas, grandmamas, aunties - all women who make a difference know how important they are. After all, where we would be without our mothers?

Thanks mom.

Happy week, y'all...Lauren
