Can I get real with you all for a minute?
I want a do-over.
Also, sick kids suck! They are cranky, whiny, obnoxious, snotty, and they won’t leave you alone. Worse than sick kids is having sick kids while you are sick. Which was my Mother’s Day; I have some sort of sinus infection or a horrible migraine and both boys are sick.
Tyson tried to be helpful and let me sleep, make me one of my favorite foods from home (Scones, which I learned after moving here are not actually ‘scones’. However, if you’re from Utah and ask for a scone everyone knows what you’re talking about. It is deep fried amazing-ness with honey butter. It’s also known as fry bread, Tyson informed me today.) and mimosas. However, because I was feeling so lousy it took me a long time to get moving and by mid afternoon I think he was really frustrated with the kids. As I said earlier they were extremely whiny, a constant drip of boogers ran from their noses, and they just wanted attention; especially Tate.
What I’m trying to get at is I would like to have a Mother’s Day do over… Is that a thing? I had high hopes for today. Brunch and mimosas, some alone time to do some long overdue homework, and some time to just relax. Unfortunately, I don’t see it in our future. 😦
Maybe next year the boys and I can get our acts together and not be sick on Mother’s Day. I would love to enjoy a few mimosas and sunshine with a nice book.
A girl can dream, right?
