Mother's Day Bitterness

I'm barely able to post about Mother's Day since it was not the finest of days for me. First let me start with the wonderful gifts I was given...try not to be jealous!

Yup, that's right girls...I got a pull up bar and the Perfect Pushup! Nothing says happy Mother's Day (or drop a few pounds) like exercise equipment! When the girls brought out my presents I said "Oh, look girls - Daddy got himself a Mother's Day present." In Jay's defense I asked him if he liked these a couple of months ago. DUH, that was for HIM...not for me. I couldn't even do a pull up when I less than 100 lbs. There is not a snowballs chance in hell that I would be able to do it now. What the heck? Seriously - WHAT THE HELL!?!?!? I am making a list for Jay from now on. Oh and for Father's Day...I'm thinking of getting Jay a sewing machine! Anybody have any better ideas?

The only funny part about it was that I whispered to Savannah, "go tell daddy that I want flowers for Mother's Day." She smiles at me and walks over to Jay to deliver the message. "Dad, Mom wants the 'f' word for Mother's Day." I almost died - I couldn't breathe! After we composed ourselves - Jay tried told her that wasn't nice because the 'f' word means fart and mom doesn't want farts for Mother's Day! Then Savannah says, "No, Dad! The 'f' word is FLOWERS!"

I must look on the bright side...in terms of gifts, Jay has no where to go but up! Good thing he makes up for stupid gifts by being a wonderful husband and pretty much the perfect Dad!
