Last week, I wrote a post called ‘What Mommy Wants‘! To be honest, I thought I may have been sharing too much. However, your responses showed me that I actually wasn’t…and maybe it needed to be said.
Well, I also think this needs to be said: “I have a good man!”
I think this is not said enough among women. We are often more susceptible to think that we can do better than to think we scored the jackpot! Our men need to know that we appreciate them, and so, I want everyone to know I appreciate my man 🙂
I think it was really very sweet of him to pay special attention to my blogpost, and make it his mission to get “What Mommy Wants” and more. Though he says I’m not his Mommy, and I concur, I’m his baby’s Mommy, and in our family, I’ll always be “Mommy”.
So, I was dreaming of a Muffin Break, but Hubby took it a few steps further. He took Baby Jay and me out to the movies on Saturday, and we watched a movie of my choice, “The 7th Dwarf!” Baby Jay loved the animation, colours and sounds…at least until he dozed off. And Hubby just dozed off!!! Lol! I almost dozed off too… I’m not recommending this movie for grown-ups, but if you have toddlers and younger kids, they’ll probably love it!
Anyway, afterwards, we made a stop at Chocolate Royale, where Mommy got a nice chocolate coconut triangle to take away 🙂 When we got home, Baby Jay kindly had his nap, and I got to enjoy my treat with tea while watching a series on TV.
It wasn’t exactly a Muffin Break, but it was a perfect day. And the awesomeness continued into Sunday. Let’s just say, Daddy got what he wanted and more 🙂
I know that motherhood and parenting is more about self-denial than gratification, but we must not loose ourselves in service. We find ourselves in service. And being refreshed, we are also able to refresh… I know times will come when these times of refreshing may be more far apart…but I hope and believe that I will continue to enjoy my marriage and motherhood through it all, as I strive to maintain a good ‘service and leisure’ balance.
