My wishes for Mother's Day....
I don't ask for much but on the one day that it's about celebrating me, as a Mother, and everything I do for my family I would like to be given just a few wishes that will come true. I could rub my coffee pot and hope that a genie pops out to grant me them but the chances of that happening, clearly, are nil.
So, I'm just gonna put it out there people.
Oh and instead of the chintzy 3 wishes that that cheap genie gives, on Mother's Day I will get 10.
That's right. Because I DESERVE that many!
Wish 1: For a morning that allows me to sleep in until whatever time I want. And not to feel guilty about it.
Wish 2: To have breakfast in bed that consists of my husband's waffles with fresh fruit, lots of whipped cream and syrup. And a very, very large cup of my favourite Costa Rican coffee. This may or may not be accompanied by a nicely wrapped gift.
Wish 3: Once I tear my lazy body out of bed I wish to come downstairs to a spotless house....sparkling floors and dishes put away.
Wish 4: Upon slagging my body sluggishly down the stairs I wish to be greeted by my sons with strangling hugs and sloppy kisses. Let me not forget about hugs and smooches from my husband too...just don't strangle me. Please. (however tempted you may be after reading this)
Wish 5: That my children are on their utmost best behaviour ALL DAY. No whining, no crying, no tantrumming.
Wish 6: Beautiful weather. I'm requesting, Mother Nature, make it 20 degrees with lots of sun and little wind so that my kids can run off their endless energy and I can soak up some Vitamin D while my husband gets to chase them around.
Wish 7: For dinner to be cooked for me ... and if that's not an option than a simple platter of sushi from my favourite Japanese restaurant will do... and don't forget the seaweed salad (trust me - sounds absurd - very delicious)
Wish 8: Alongside my home cooked or sushi meal to indulge in a glass or 3 of my favourite chilled white wine.
Wish 9: For my children to eat all of their dinner. No freaking out, no crying, no running away from the table. A nice civilized dinner...is that too much to ask?
Wish 10: For my boys to go to bed (early) without any dramatics so that I can spend some quality time with my husband, sipping on some wine together, maybe play some Boggle (he hates playing that game with me...because I RULE) and so that I can tell my genie of a husband how amazing he is for making all my wishes come true.
