It's my first Mother's Day this weekend as a single mum. Monkey is with CA this weekend. I've been torn between wanting him home with me, but he's too young to buy into spoiling me and I'm not sure it's what I need the most.
If I'm entirely honest - the biggest gift he could give me is being at his dad's and I get to have a lie in and a slow morning to myself. No need to get up or watch Diego or Sesame Street. No arguments about what's for breakfast or whether or not he needs to wear matching socks.
So this Mother's Day I am celebrating it with a childless long weekend without the responsibility of being a mum... and we'll have HIS favourite food for dinner and lots of cuddles before bedtime. It's the best of both worlds.
What do you think?
