Mother's Day

What's the best thing you can get a new mom on Mother's Day? SLEEP!

Karen took care of the baby so that I could get a wonderful, afternoon nap. She also gave me a "new Mom" card and a delightful book. I have NO idea of when she made the time to do this! I didn't get her anything--poor K.

It's a bit odd to be a two-mom household on Mother's Day. When I was growing up, my Dad would do nice things for my Mom on Mother's Day and vice versa on Father's Day. Karen and I do nice things for each other every day. So how do we make Mother's Day special? Ideas anyone?

We managed an outing with Kylie yesterday. We went to the scrapbook store--it was a two-hour trip. I wore Kylie in her sling while shopping. I was very nervous that she would scream her head off and that other shoppers would yell "Bad Mother!" and throw stuff at me or give me disapproving glances. But Kylie was an angel and didn't make a peep. I know one day she will just lose it, in public, and I know I'll handle it. But I'm so grateful this wasn't the case yesterday.

Here's a few photos for you:
I call this one- "How do you like my hair?"

A few more photos here.

Happy Mother's Day to both of you! We got a really nice nap this afternoon, too, and thought it was the best gift ever.

Also, congrats on your outing! I had similar worries about an inopportune baby-meltdown and it did eventually happen - when our little guy was about a month old and we were at the passport window of the post office with about a million people in line behind us. It was definitely somewhat stressful, but not really as bad as I was expecting, actually...and once it was over, I could check that off my list of potential things to worry about! Still, I'm glad you didn't have to deal with that at the scrapbook store :)

How about having a "Mother's Day Weekend" every year. One of you has Saturday as your day and the other has Sunday. You could alternate the days every year, so you would both get to have the "actual" day every other year. Just an idea.

Glad you had a good day and a successful outing.

The pictures are ADORABLE!

Happy Mother's Day to two WONDERFUL mothers!

BTW - I'm jealous. I love scrapbook stores. You would die if you came here. We have some of the best scrapbook stores in the country!

Happy first Mother's day.

I say as your blog is called 2 moms, there's no doubt in my mind you both deserve to be celebrated. I like the idea of sat/sun celebration or you could just share.
