Welcome to Mother's Day!!

So this weekend is Mother's Day, and like all good redneck moms. I will be taking the kids to the annual MOTHERS DAY AT 6 FLAGS weekend. Yippie..

I actually dread it and look forward to it all at the same time.. I look forward to having the family together, going with the neighbors and hanging out, enjoying their sweet little kids, riding the rides, not waiting in long lines, and the beautiful weather.

But, I really dread, having to get up early on the one day that I could have pulled the "sleeping real late" excuse, packing the cooler, packing the car-while my darling husband is mysteriously MIA during the packing, organizing extra outfits and shoes-just in case (you never know!) hunting down sunscreen, showing my fat white legs in shorts to half the world, listening to kids whining about walking, being tired, being hot, being thirsty, being too short to ride certain riders, too scared to ride other rides, etc..

But then when the day is over, and we're back at home all happy and sunburned, I think, "What a great day, I can't wait til next year.."

On an other note... I took the girls to Target last night to pick out some cards and whatnot, and the little one saw my boy manning the cash register (He's so HANDSOME in the red shirt and khakis!!) she was thrilled to death!! So she stood behind him at his register and made silly faces while he tried to look all "hey I'm cool and business like". Instead of thumping her on the head or threatening her with razzberry boogers, he started talking to her. They talked about what they got me for Mother's Day.

A little while later she comes running over to me saying, "Na na na na, I know what he got you for Mother's Day, and I ain't telling."

So like any good mother, I told her that I would beat it out of her later. She was just so thrilled that big brother acknowledged her in public and was actually nice and cool to her.

I was so thrilled also. . . I live for moments when my kids show each other love.

...Like when Josh and I got tattoos?

SouthernChickie said...

Yep, even that. I actually like the tats, I think that they are pretty designs and in good taste. I just wish that they weren't permanent!!

And, just for the record, I REALLY hate all those other tattoes on J-bird's body!

Virgo Kitten said...

Yeah, every chance I get I tell people about the one on his stomach (or did I hallucinate and just think you told me about that?)

Mine is prettier, because I had the good sense not to color it in. And yes, all his other tats are a little too much. I must have gotten his share of the gene for good taste.

Hey, where's the love for the designer? Of COURSE you love them, Mom, my good taste and design, and LOVE went into those tattoos!

SouthernChickie said...

Yes Dar, I DID forget that you were the evil genius behing those designs. I really love them, though!

Hey, were you also the one who convinced him to tattoo the words L-I-T-T-L-E above his penis?

I swear sometimes that boy just doesn't think..

OK I am lost with all the tatoo talk, but I can get lost about air! I hang onto the few times that my children are not ready to kill each other. That's when I can think,,,, yep that is why I am a MOM! Have a great time.

Ya gotta love it when they bond. It makes up for the times they are screaming "get out of my face" to each other.

Speaking of tattoos, if ya can't beat 'em, join 'em. I hate tattoos and ended up going with my daughters for a "bonding" experience. We each got 3 little things on the same toe symbolizing the three of us. Awwwwwwww Must have been in my post divorce dimentia.

Love your blog, btw.
