This Sunday is Mother’s Day. A day I have longed to celebrate. And while Tim and I will be spending most of the day with his family, I believe the day will totally be about his mother and his sister, as opposed to being about me.
Tim thinks that I, too, should be celebrating Mother’s Day. After all, I am providing all this good room and board for Foxy. I take meds and eat properly most of the time so she can be healthy. I have painstakingly seen to what her needs will be once she arrives.
While all of that is true, I still don’t feel like a mom just yet. I feel more like a hostess for a really big event. Can I get a hostess gift and a glass of champagne?
When I think of my first Mother’s Day, I imagine spending it with my child. I want to hold her in my arms and celebrate that special day. Additionally, I want my own mother to be there, so the three of us can celebrate such a monumental occasion.
So although I appreciate the thoughtfulness that this is my first Mother’s Day, I believe that I will still remain a mother-to-be. I’ll let the other ladies have it. But next year? It’s all about me!
Did you celebrate Mother’s Day before your first child was born? Do you think pregnant woman should celebrate Mother’s Day or wait until after the baby arrives.
