Mother’s Day…The Day After!


First of all let me tell you I really enjoyed Mother’s Day this year. I spent the day with my 2 kids and they did not fight with each other all day! To top things off, my husband cooked dinner for me and did the dishes. What more could I ask for?

I should have asked for it to last longer! Today is the Day After Mother’s Day and this is how the real world works! I woke up this morning and went out to the kitchen to get my morning cup of coffee. But guess what, there was no coffee in the pot! I usually set the coffee up when I clean up the kitchen after dinner. Well, last night I didn’t clean up, so you guessed it NO COFFEE! OK, I made the coffee, actually took a few sips, and went upstairs to wake the girls up for school. So far so good, they were both moving fairly well for a Monday.

Then we get to the bathroom! The 8 year old starts bitching complaining that her sister has stuff on her side of the sink. Seriously, I think the 15 year old’s comb was a half-inch over the imaginary line down the bathroom! I tell the 8 year old to suck it up to be the bigger one and ignore it. Of course I should know that is not going to work and the fighting starts in! I threaten to go get the duct tape if they don’t both shut up!

Next, I go back down to the kitchen to get breakfast going for the kids and this time, since I am awake now, I see a complete disaster where my nice clean kitchen used to be! I had a pile of pots sitting in my sink! I asked my husband about the pots and he said he didn’t know what to do with them. Try washing them! I wanted to scream but I didn’t. Then the smell hit me. You see for dinner my loving husband steamed some King Crab legs for me. Yep, you guessed it he put the shells in the kitchen trash can! See, I usually make the 15 year old take the trash out after dinner, but then again I did not have a hand in dinner last night.

So far on this, the Day After Mother’s Day, I have awoken to no coffee, broke up World War III, and cleaned up my disaster area of a kitchen. Next year I am banning Mother’s Day from being celebrated at my house! 🙄

  1. That’s when I’m glad my kids are older. Been there, done that. But when my daughter has a child I’ll have to go through it all over again with her kids. I’m actually looking forward to it. I must be crazy.

    I’m glad you had a good Mother’s Day though.
