Best Day of…..EVER!

OK. So I knew Mother’s Day would be an awesome day, but let me tell you how amazing it actually was…and we didn’t even do that much stuff! No wonder this is the best day of the year for mothers. Seriously, it was the most relaxing day I’ve had since she’s been born. Every second was full of calm and peace knowing that whenever I wanted, I could pass the buck (aka Bridget) on to the Jonathan and he couldn’t (at least, he wouldn’t) say “no” or even        complain! It was amazing. As you know or will soon find out, being a daddy is just not the same as being a mommy. Daddy has it hard, too, but mommyhood is really the full-time job. Daddy is not so much. Daddy gets all the love and all the smiles and all the fun, but when it comes down to it, mommy does it all. Daddy will agree most days of the week :). Well ladies, on Mother’s Day we get whatever we want for all that hard work. One day a year is better than none so I decided to use it for all it was worth! Wahoo!

It started on Saturday when Daddy took all the laundry to the laundrymat, folded AND put it all away (no comment on how  many loads needed to be done):IMG_6837Sunday morning began with Mommy sleeping in til 8:30am while Daddy did morning duty. Then we all had breakfast together (well, B ate and we watched) with Daddy doing spoon duty:IMG_6802B went down like a champ for her morning nap so Mommy got time to go back to sleep! Nice! That nap also helped Daddy stay in a good mood for the rest of the day. He needs his naps:IMG_6804Next, Mommy showered while Daddy and B kept napping :) Then we got ready and went to Sunday brunch together:


B sat by Daddy and he had “puffs” duty as well as lunch food duty. B had so many people come up to tell her she was the cutest ever…of course:

IMG_6807 Daddy gave Mommy some shopping time in the afternoon while he and B went to the Adamo’s house. Yay for shopping time! Upon our return, we made margaritas and hung with B in the playroom:


Daddy did all the night-night duties and then we had a yummy Subway dinner (laugh, but I love it and never get to have sandwiches ‘cause my husband is a veggie-hating vegetarian….it was my idea!) and watched our weekly shows together.

I couldn’t have asked for a better day. I’ve decided that I probably won’t ever want a Mother’s Day away on my own, but instead being with my little family, though not having to be in charge of ANYTHING. It was amazing. Ah-mazing!!


  1. Yay!!! That sounds awesome. Especially the margaritas! Jealous.

  2. I am laughing at all of the 'duty' stations that were manned by Daddy -- good job, Daddy! I am also laughing that it was 5 o'clock somewhere...even in the playroom. Ha! You guys are so cute and so normal. :)

  3. Loveee that your first Mother's Day was a success and nothing like on the show The Middle (if you watch that)!!! My favorite part, besides B, in all of the pictures are the two lovely margaritas on the play pad! Heheheeee..
