Tuesday Timeout: Mother’s Day and My Sweet Boy

I had an amazing Mother’s Day!  Last year Paul was deployed and I just cuddled with my sweet little man, but this year from start to finish I had a really good day thanks to the boys.. (Well almost start to finish, but I’ll get to that!)

My day started off with Xander sleeping until 9:30–the day before he woke up at his becoming normal 7 AM, so 9:30 was heaven! Then Paul got up with him and the next thing I know here comes Xander running as fast as he can with a box. He’s starting to talk more and more and he brought me the box and said “here go” then took off again. I barely got that box opened when he was back with another box!  Spoiled as I am I got four boxes containing different kitchen items that I have recently asked for! :)

After the parade of presents ended Paul told me to get dressed so we could leave. The boys took me out to breakfast, and I didn’t have to pick the place–which I absolutely hate picking so that made even better. Plus the place Paul had picked out had freshly squeezed tangerine juice that was amazing and my eggs benedict were perfect. Xander was a little piglet and ate an entire adult-sized portion of French toast!!

We came back home after breakfast and here’s where the only bad thing that happened all day occurred. We put X down for a nap and while he was sleeping Paul went on a bike ride. I laid down to rest while I could and a little after Paul got back I had a gush. I honestly thought my water had broken. We called the dr and he wanted me to come in just to be sure, so we ended up spending 3 hours at the hospital because I was having contractions (shocker, since I’ve had them for so long now!) and they didn’t want to send me home if I was in labor. Thankfully the contractions didn’t pick up, and the test ruled out my water breaking–I probably just peed myself. Awesome right? Lol.


So other than the short hospital stay I had a pretty amazing Mother’s Day, and I’m extremely thankful to have such sweet men in my life.  I told the boys that Liam was so jealous of how well they did for Mother’s Day that he wanted to come early just to show them up! :) Thankfully he’s still safely tucked inside and hopefully will stay that way for a few more weeks, although no one seems to think that’s going to happen.
