Mother’s Day? Mother’s Weekend!

I can’t believe my babies are in bed and Mother’s Day has come to an end. If someone hasn’t said it to you yet… HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!! This year we took Mother’s Day and turned it into an entire weekend. Friday was beyond amazing! Gryphen’s class had a Mother’s Day Tea and invited all the mums into their class for 45 minutes. We enjoyed cookies and tea! Gryphen was beyond excited to have mummy in class and show me all around to her friends. So adorable! We sat at a table with her best friend Jack, these two are so darn adorable together.
Once Gryphen came home from school we took the kids out for sushi at Wind on Lundy’s Lane. This is such a great place, we always end up in the back room where most other kids seated. If felt so nice dressing up and heading out with the family. I feel like we don’t do this enough. The kids were so well-behaved and enjoyed a lot of sushi!
By the time Sunday came around and the Official Mother’s Day I was feeling like the most special Mumma in the world! The kids surprised me with the watch I wanted and we headed off for a nature hike through Woodend. I can’t get enough of this place, the trails are so nice and at the end is this amazing natural playground. When we arrived the kids had their Mabel’s Label wristbands put on. These bands are great for when you’re going to be outside all day, I love the piece of mind if we get separated the kids are able to go to an adult and ask them to call the numbers on the band to help us locate them. This was our first time using them and I was sadly disappointed they’re mainly 1 time use. HU pulled his off that night with no issues.
This Mother’s Day has been utterly amazing. I had no expectations this year and just wanted to enjoy time with my family. Devon asked if I wanted to sleep in and do a spa day or anything like that and I said no. I wanted to spend mother’s day with my family. They’re the reason I am a mother, so what better way to spend it than with them! In the past I’ve always felt like Mother’s Day was a day I should be pampering myself and relaxing but all those times never go as planned. After this weekend I think this special day needs to be spent with your family. Devon emphasized to Gryphen that this weekend was about mummy and she made sure I felt special. We still had normal kid behaviour, let’s be honest they’re kids! We ended our weekend with a delicious supper at the Keg where HU & Gryphen pigged out on warm bread and burgers while Devon & I enjoyed a much-needed steak!

How did you spend your mother’s day? Did your kids treat you like a Queen? I can’t wait until Father’s Day to celebrate the special weekend with Devon. I guess the kids and I better start thinking of gift ideas! haha
