Mothers Day

So I survived another Mother's day. I am not a mother, and although I have a wonderful mother and mother-in-law, I still feel like it is a punch in the guts. My mother, sister and I all went to the Blue Owl for lunch and pie, of course. We went on Saturday thinking they wouldn't be so busy, but we waited 45 minutes and the room kept filling up with at least half a dozen babies. It was hard, especially since my nerves were already fried from the wait and the stress of this cycle.

So My mom and us girls had a great time, and then on Sunday we had a brunch and cards and gifts and everything. Not so bad, I got my mom 2 Koi fish for her outside pond, and one is orange and white and the other is silverish blue and black. She loves them, so I am happy.

And finally last night we did my In-laws for mothers day. We went to see Cirque du Soliel, and then had dinner afterwards. We had a great time, and there were no small children. I know it really sounds like I have no use for small children at all, but it is all for the fact that I am not a mother, everytime I see my mom gaze at a baby it hurts because I haven't made her a grandma. It is had that everywhere I go I am surrounded by babies. But life must go on and I am living for Friday morning.
