Day 6- Almost forgot!

Today is the beginning of what I hope to be a fantastic weekend! Mother Nature did not allow me to celebrate last weekend  so birthday celebrations start tonight! I am so looking forward to dinner with friends. Tomorrow we will head to Grapevine do a little shopping and have a glass or two of wine.
As I was driving home I was thinking about how different my life is and how my children are being raised. I don't remember my mom ever going away for the weekend with friends. Knowing what I know now and how hard it can be being a mother, I wish I could go back and give her that time.
Not sure how she did it, without friends to call up and vent too. Well she had her sisters and brothers only 10. So maybe I wasn't always around when she did.
Although writing this does spark memories of family sitting in the kitchen and all of  us kids hang around in our bedrooms or outside.
I do remember the typical "go over there this is adult talk!" Geez, I sound like my mother!
I am rambling but I really am thankful to our parents. My children have not ever gone to daycare and on nights like tonight we know we are leaving them in the best care.
Hope everyone enjoys their evening and until tomorrow!


  1. Isn't it funny when it hits you that your parents must have gone through this same thing you are going through? It makes you appreciate them all the more.

  2. It is funny how we become our parents. I know you and I know you are a wonderful mother, so get out there and enjoy your belated birthday celebration!

  3. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  4. When I read your post tonight, I wanted to track down your mom and say, "Hey, did you know your amazing daughter is writing about you and your dedication as a mother, wife, sister, and grandparent?" I love how much you love your family Yesi. Can't wait to celebrate and recharge with you. Cheers to turning 40!

  5. You mention how different things are now for you than they were for your mom. I think the feminist movement has much to do w/ that, but I also think it's hard for many younger women to realize that. Fortunately, teens are beginning to see the relevance of feminism to their lives; at least many of my students do.
