The Day After Mother's Day

Mother's Day is great- I love that I don't have to do dishes or cook or do laundry, but then the day after comes and well, there's double to do.

Today I've played catch up. I've vacuumed glitter from the carpet where Gray broke a snowglobe right before church yesterday (had to wait for it to dry and then it was Mother's Day after all- no vacuuming until today.) I've searched our entire backyard for a tiny Star Wars guy's gun. A tiny little black gun. Like the size of a little safety pin- or smaller. In the backyard. Full of blades of grass. Where he really wasn't supposed to have it in the first place. But it means so much to Carter so you better believe I am going to do my best to find it.

That's what Moms do- especially the day after Mother's Day.

  1. It's like when you leave a full body massage appt. It feels great, but you have to go back home! :)

  2. I'm with you today. Yes, I slept until ten thirty and read for an hour in the hammock - while the rest of my family trashed my house!

  3. Oh man. I hate those tiny guns. Just as bad as Barbie shoes. But you can't buy those guns or light sabers at the store. Good luck.

  4. I had the same thoughts today. Yesterday was so relaxing but wow I'm tired tonight.

  6. I know what you mean about playing catch up. I always hope that one day when I take a day off that everything will miraculously take care of itself. Of course it never does though so then I have to kick my butt into gear in order to get back on track the next day. Oh well I guess I should relish the day off!! Good luck with the itsy bitsy gun...whoever invented those pieces anyway??

  8. Yes the nap yesterday was heavenly, but life is back to normal around here... with twice as much laundry!

    Glad you enjoyed your day (and hope you found the gun)!

  9. Are you still outside looking for the gun? Hope you found it!

    Yeah, it's great to be back to the Mom life, isn't it?

  10. Oh I have so been there. The sad little look on their faces will make me search for anything they can't find.

  12. I get spoiled on Mother's Day! Laying around, not doing any housework, then-like you said- there is stuff left for you! Oh well! I wouldn't want life any other way! :)

  13. That was my day as well. I got a "mom, you don't have to do any chores today!" Monday...the piles of dishes and laundry grew. From taking one day off!

    Good luck with the search! They make those so small...

  16. Hi there! I happened on your blog somehow (can't remember who's blog had the link?) and I'm so glad I did! I loved your post about searching for the toy gun! So funny! I'll be back again to come and read. (Prolly not tomorrow as my hubby and I are going to Johannesburg for our first meeting with an adoption agency so we can adopt from Russia! Toooo exciting!) So, enjoy the moments of madness with the kids. I can't wait to have some of my own. Moments of Madness. And kids!

  18. Enjoy every second of looking for that tiny little black gun! When all your boys are grown up and live away from home, you will treasure these moments and stories!

  19. Oh my gosh, we just packed up the toy room and at the bottom of the toy box were OODLES of swords and guns and various other weapons of action figures. Do you have an extra one anywhere?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah. The day after Mother's Day is hard. But I say you should have had hubby do the vacuuming and cleaning so the day after wouldn't have been such a rough transition. ;-)

    Hope you had a good one!

    Glad I stopped by!
