You might be asking yourself why this post has a “Take 2” on the title. Well, let me tell you about that. Mother’s Day 1 stunk. Grumpy kids being mean to mom led to unhappy tears. It just wasn’t a very memorable day in a good way.
I don’t like unmemorable days.
So I did what any good dad would do and conspired with the kids to have a Second Mother’s Day. Only this one would be awesome. So we did. We surprised mom with homemade cards and snuggles in bed. We bought her a chocolate icing devil’s food donut (or two). Her favorite! We also bought her her very own pack of chocolate oreos (she likes chocolate). We hung streamers, played cards, had a water gun fight, made smoothies, threw confetti and just had a fun day together.
Mother’s Day: Take 2 was a success, mom felt especially loved, and we had a memorable day…it was just one of those days where a little extra effort made a normal day into an awesome one. We like awesome days.
