So, my hubby went all out for motherâ€™s day this year. If you know Chris, heâ€™s totally not a planner, but he pulled off planning motherâ€™s day stuff for me this year. 🙂
Chris worked at night for several days before motherâ€™s day. Then, he took Friday off. I felt really tired Friday morning, so he took Caleb to his music class. I stayed home with Caris. Of course, Caris decided to not nap very long, but I still rested. Then, in the afternoon, Chris sent me to a fancy spa for a 2 hour massage. This place was niceâ€¦ there was a quiet room with short Japanese tables, cushions, & tea. Then there was this strange yellow clay roomâ€¦ and another room where you lay on rocks while you bask in this extraordinary heat. They had another quiet room with sofas and comfy chairsâ€¦ and sleep bedsâ€¦ with aromatherapy and cookies (yum!). There was a wet sauna room and a dry sauna roomâ€¦ and a jacuzzi. I got a 2 hour massage, but they also have special rooms for a milk bath and a mud bath. Interesting. So before I left the house for this spa place, Chris tells me he doesnâ€™t want me back before 5PM. I laughed because I didnâ€™t know this place had so much stuff there. And Iâ€™ve forgotten how much I cherish my quiet, alone time. As a mom, you rarely have time to yourself. Even with that truth, it can be such a lonely role. Seems ironic to say that you can be lonely when youâ€™re never by yourself when you have kids, but itâ€™s true. So when I got there, I just relaxed and spent some nice time with God. Before I knew it, it was already 5PM and my breasts were telling that they were way overdue for feeding Caris. So, i had to quickly take a shower and get home. I didnâ€™t even use their shower â€œpretty me upâ€ amenities. They have face toner, a flat iron, blow dryer, sterilized hair brushes, etc. Fancy, I tell you.
When I got home, Chris had cut me roses from our backyard (he knows I hate the idea of wasting money on buying flowers). He had this cute sign saying, â€œI love you, Mommy,â€ and there were pics of my kids holding the sign. Very cute. Thanks, hubby! I love you!!!
