Mother’s Day 1st Time Mamas vs. Veterans

May 11, 2018 — Leave a comment

Are you a first time Preggers Mama?  If so, we have some advice for you!  Enjoy it!  Seriously, enjoy this Mother’s Day, because it is the only one that will be like this.  Sleep in.  Maybe you awake to breakfast in bed prepared by a doting husband.  Or, maybe you dress in a cute maternity dress and go to brunch with your family.  An afternoon pedicure.  Quiet time reading a book in the sunshine.

These all sound glorious!  Don’t get me wrong, any Mother’s Day is wonderful because it celebrates our most important job – being a Mom!  But, let’s face it, you’ll never have another Mother’s Day like this one.

For example:

Early Morning Snoozing

Wake up gradually with the warm sun streaming through the window.  Hear the birds chirping and maybe the smell of breakfast cooking.

Wake up to your pregnant belly hanging off the bed because your other children are occupying the space.  Someone is probably screaming.  Someone might have wet the bed.

Breakfast

Your darling hubby has been up for an hour making you breakfast in bed.  You leisurely have breakfast together and talk about how wonderful it will be once the baby is here.

You turned your back for just a moment and breakfast became a scene from a disaster movie.

 Afternoon Activity

You spend the afternoon getting pampered at a salon.  Or maybe your husband even helps you with your pedicure.

Here you are on the sidelines watching soccer game number three for the day.  Only two more to go.

Evening Wind Down Time

You finish off the day with a relaxing bubble bath.  Candles burning.  Calming music in the background.  The scent of lavender floating in the air.

Kids-in-Bath

This time you’re preparing the bath and trying to bathe kids without getting your own clothes wet.  Don’t get soap in your child’s eyes.  And actually it’s a bubble bath because the other child dumped a whole bottle of shampoo in the water.

In all fairness, the 1st Time Preggers Mama scenario is probably a little too perfect.  And even though the Veteran Preggers Mama spent the whole day busy with her kids, she probably wouldn’t change a second of it.  It’s why we’re mamas, right?!

Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Preggers!
