My birthday, a Saturday, was spent getting 5 boys in and out the door to baseball tournaments, friends homes, and church activities, all while trying to keep Mia on her "normal" schedule that she would be on if we were at home. Eric was able to come down for the day, but he had a few errands to run so I was mostly on my own. And did I mention that one of the boys became sick? The glamorous birthday of a mother :) I asked Eric to hold off on my birthday cake because to be honest? I wanted to eat the whole thing by myself instead of sharing.... HA! So after we finished eating dinner, Eric surprised us with donuts! He made sure the birthday girl had the biggest donut of all, ha ha! He wanted me to feel special which was super sweet! He gave me a couple of gifts then life went on as normal.
When I finished watching the boys, I came home to a clean home and the BTS cake that Eric baked for me (he really is the best!) and you better believe I ate most of that by myself :) I was excited for the weekend so that we could have a belated birthday celebration date when Eric unexpectedly had to work instead. So we really never had an actual celebration... which is fine! Life gets crazy, I get it. That's why my sweet husband gifted me with a certificate to spend the day at a spa, literally! Massage, facial, pedicure and lunch... HEAVEN! But!! From here on out, (Eric, are you listening my love?) I need to be sent to the spa ON my birthday! Now that I've had a glimpse into real life as a busy mom, and I realized that the world doesn't actually revolve around me even though it's my birthday, made me realize that that the best gift I can receive is a little me time, getting pampered, and a break from the crazy life of mom world :) Totally selfish but it's okay if it's my birthday, right?! Right!
On a different note, last day to enter this giveaway!
