My First Mother's Day

This post is a day late and while I hope to continue to remain on time or early to events even after the baby arrives I might also want to warm up to the idea that I will run late to events occasionally and it will be completely out of my control- therefore you get this post- a day late! 

Yesterday was Mother's Day and I spent the day enjoying a homemade pancake breakfast courtesy of Tice and his wonderful cooking skills, laying around watching TV, talking a walk in the beautiful weather and diving into a BBQ dinner.  One would think that this sounds like a wonderful Mother's Day but to be honest it felt like any old Sunday.  Due to this fact as we were crawling into bed I let Tice know this and through tear soaked eyes told him "I can't believe you didn't even get me a card!"  Let's just say that my pregnancy hormones got the best of me and I ended up telling him that I kept thinking that he would at least whip out a card expressing his appreciation and love for me on this, my First Mother's Day. 

His thought process on the day, which he explained to me while I was dabbing my tear stained checks was that I'm not his mother and Sawyer isn't technically here yet so he didn't think we would actually celebrate it. 


Needless to say I got over it after we discussed my hormone charged feelings but he didn't- he slept terrible in fact so terrible that he got up at 4:30 AM to begin research on getting us the perfect camera.  (I had  mentioned that while the camera we have now is fine, I would love an upgrade because I know we are about to enter a time when we will be taking a TON of pictures).  The research he did led to a purchase and this little baby will be waiting for me when I get home tonight...
