Mother's Day Faker

Happy Mother's Day!  If you are a Mom, I hope you are enjoying the day that was set aside to make you feel loved and appreciated.

I have to admit, I'm faking my way through today.  I try to live my life without expectation, because those get me in trouble....but damnit, I'm feeling like today is just like every other day, and I wish it were a little more special. What's even worse is I feel like I shouldn't have to ask for that.
I know that being a mom to small kids means a bunch of personal sacrifice....I get it, but I'd still like to have a day of "Wow, thanks for all that you do"

I took an extra long shower that was nice, but I spent most of it crying. 
Everything else has been like a regular Sunday, although the weather is truly spectacular....making the playground really enjoyable.

I'm not really one to whine or complain, I just wanted to get that off my chest without starting a really big argument, and this is the best place to do that. 
I wish I could just snap out of it today and just enjoy the fact that my kids are happy, healthy, and that they are really sweet (when they are not driving me bat-shit-crazy).  

I'm going to go snuggle my boy as he rests on the sofa before I blink and he's in high school.
Thanks for listening.
