This is my sweet baby. I love her oodles and oodles. This will be my first Mother's Day. And while yes Mother's Day may be a consumeristic hallmark holiday I do not care. Not one little iota. I love my baby but it has been a hard year bringing this little one into the world. After two months of bed rest, a very painful 1.5 hours of pushing, breastfeeding trauma that I don't even want to think about, and way too many 10 hour work days after a mere 3-4 hours of sleep I just want a day that's about spoiling me. And that is just the truth of the matter. Next month Margot and I will plan a day all about spoiling Chris in honor of his first Father's Day. We already have big plans, we've been plotting!
As a new Mother here are some ideas to make Mother's day a fun and special day without breaking the bank.
1. Breakfast in Bed: I have already put in a request to my dear husband for Bagels with Lox and decaf Duncan Donuts coffee
2. Flowers: flowers are lovely and they just make you happy. Just a small simple bunch of peonies or roses is perfect.
3. A small trinket: I think a small gift is nice. You can wear it and remember it was a gift for your first Mother's Day. I am loving these three affordable pieces from Stella and Dot. hint hint...:)
