Welp, it happened!
I celebrated my first Mother’s Day… in quarantine. Before COVID-19, I had dreams of going out to brunch with my family and feeling truly pampered. However, when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.
When my husband asked me what I wanted for mother’s day, I told him I just wanted to be pampered for the day. Put my feet up and spend time snuggling with the little one that made me a mommy.
You can forget about sleeping in since my infant thinks 6AM is an ideal time to wake up regardless of the time she goes to sleep; my husband prepared a breakfast feast while I showered and put on real clothes instead of the leggings that I have been wearing in quarantine. It felt nice to gussy up for a change.
Hubby prepared a massive breakfast if bacon, sausage, eggs, and toast that we all enjoyed. I sipped a hot cup of coffee while snuggling my little one while he cleaned up.
I opened my gifts – a necklace from Tiffany’s and a bottle of moet chandon.
We watched movies. Hubby baked a cake. I facetimed with my mom and cousin.
We took pics. And I waited anxiously to devour this baby:
It was box vanilla cake mix with French vanilla frosting.
I inhaled that cake with a glass of champagne.
It was a nice and quiet day spent with my little love who made me a mommy. Ideally I would have loved to go out but hopefully we can go back to normal before the next mother’s day 😅.
