Mother's Day Gift: Mom's Day Off

Mother's Day is right around the corner! Whenever I'm asked what I want for a holiday, I always know the answer. It's also one that The Hubs can't exactly wrap up, so it isn't his favorite. But, while I absolutely adore my children, there's nothing more invigorating, relaxing and makes me more grateful for my gaggle of littles, than a Mom's Day Off. No requests or demands. No cleaning, bootie wiping, or cooking. A complete day off. 

What does my perfect Mom's day off consist of? To start, coffee. 

The best day starts with a cup of coffee, finished before it gets cold. Sitting at an outdoor cafe table, being able to mindlessly scroll the internet without a care in the world, makes it even better.

If I ever have time to myself, shopping is always involved. Anyone who has tried on clothes with a stroller in the fitting room, knows you have to jump at the solo chance! With shoes made for lots of walking, the Crocs and I hit the road.

When I shop alone, it's me and my wallet. No diaper bag, no stroller, just a hand for my drink and some serious rack digging.

Once I'm worn out from the shopping, it's relaxing time. I love sitting by the pool. Reading a magazine. Getting a tan. Taking a nap. But none of that can happen if you're watching kids do all their fun pool tricks, while simultaneously spraying you in the face with water. To sit by the pool alone is rather heavenly, even before it's quite swimming temperatures.

But what's a Mom's day off without some girlfriends? Finishing the day with a dinner I don't have to cook, a meal I don't have to get up during and a cocktail I can drink guilt free is the icing on my mom's day off cake.

  3. A cup of coffee at a cafe (a quiet one!), shopping, lunch, a nice walk outside for a workout (or a pedicure instead!) and then dinner out with lots of wine! Sounds heavenly!

  8. Sleeping through the night for the first time in the 16 months since my son was born, coffee, a magazine or two, shopping for a little something for me (!), and then back to my little ones and hubby, who I can't really bear to be away from for too long without missing them!

  9. I would sleep through the night, have a great breakfast I'd didn't have to cook with lots of coffee, spend the day out shopping for a new bag (my weakness), and meet my hubs for a lunch date. The kids would go to bed early that night and we could relax and watch a movie from home. Sounds pretty perfect to me!
