    The Things I REALLY want for Mother’s Day …But just can’t bring myself to ask for…


    So if someone asked you what you really wanted for Mother’s Day, what would you say? Of course as mothers we would all say, “Oh nothing, just the love from my family is enough”. Of course this is all true and the home-made card, Quickie Mart flowers, burnt breakfast in bed and macaroni necklace are all a wonderful bonus. But if no one was listening and judging, what wold you really ask for?


    First let’s take a look at the word want for a minute. I did some research trying to find out the exact medical terminology for the metamorphosis that takes place as soon as we become mothers. I know there are many, but this particular one is where the word “need” is totally erased from our vocabulary and replaced with “want”. Of course my search came up empty. How do we, perfectly intelligent, rational women, forgo our basic human needs and now see them as wants? Also, as we all know, referring to something as a “want” when you’re a mother carries along with it another dreaded four letter word…GUILT!!!If you actually look these two words up in the dictionary you would be surprised how very similar their definitions really are…Go ahead, have a look, I’l wait….

    So this Mother’s Day I wish to profess to my husband and four children how much I truly love and appreciate all of them. And thank you in advance for the clay paperweight, decoupage card and carnations…

    But if no one was listening and judging, this is what I really wantfor Mother’s Day..

    1) EAT…I want to eat a meal, that I so lovingly prepared for my family, once a week without having to feed someone else. Just one fork, one plate and one hot meal from start to finish.

     2) SLEEP…one night a week I would like to enjoy a full nights sleep. Trust me, this will be more of a gift to my family. Sleep = Happy…Happy mom, Happy wife, Happy life…

     3) MY NAME…donʼt get me wrong, hearing the word mamma, mom or any version of this word is the sweetest sound on earth and I would trade everything I have to hear it for ever. But for one day a month I would like to hang out with people who call me Dee.

    4) TIME…just a little bit of it alone, to do something silly. Like clean my purse that has now become another diaper bag.

     5) I would like my 22-year-old breasts back……Ok, so I canʼt have everything, but a girl can dream canʼt she???

    Happy Motherʼs Day to all of you Goddesses. And always remember the best Motherʼs Day gift is the blessing of actually being a mother….and an evening with George Clooney a close second…


    “Love your Mamma”..Martini…with a little slice of peace and quiet…


    2 oz Watermelon Vodka

    2 oz lemon juice

    1/2 oz simple syrup (equal parts sugar/warm water)

    3 slices cucumber

    2 mint leaves

    Shake vodka, juice, syrup and mint leaves with ice. Serve in a martini glass with ice. Garnish with cucumber floating on the top of cocktail. This cocktail is best made up ahead of time so mint and cucumber flavours can infuse into the cocktail. So make up a pitcher the day before and invite the other Momʼs over to enjoy some if that TIME you asked for…

    Ya know what’s funny Dee? With my seperation & only having my kids 1/2 the time, I have all these things. Don’t get me wrong, they’re all nice, especially if you haven’t enjoyed them lately. I wish you luck.

    For me who is 1/2 dad and 1/2 mom, I just want someone to cuddle with. Pretty simple, eh?

    Oh, and Dee, on behalf of heterosexual men everywhere…we would all like you to have your 22 breasts back. 🙂

    Happy Mothers Day Dee!
    All your wants are so very similar to my own. 🙂

    Sounds about right. The opportunity to pee in peace is a real treat. If it’s not a kid, it’s a dog or cat trying to get in.

    Happy Momma’s Day!
