I love being a mom…most days. I think we all have those days where a couple of hours alone are longed for, but I generally look forward to seeing my kids when I’m done with work. Whether they are playing “Beauty and The Hockey Playing Beast”, (the only way my son would play with his sister!!) or we are all bustin’ a move to some Jackson 5 on the Wii, they crack me up.
My husband always makes Mother’s Day special for both his mom and myself, usually cooking breakfast and a thoughtful card and gift. I lucked out in the husband department, for sure.
That being said, this Tina Fay quote from “Date Night”, though, still warms my heart for its sheer honesty!
“If anything, I fantasize sometimes about being alone. There are times when I just thought about, on my worst day, just you know, leaving our house and just going some place like checking into a hotel and just being in a quite room by myself, just sitting in a quite air-conditioned room, sitting down, eating my lunch, with no one touching me, drinking a Diet Sprite, by myself. Look, I just wanna have one day that doesn’t depend on how everyone else’s day goes.”
