Mothers day a perfect day to get back in the game.

So if you are looking at the dates on this blog you can see I haven’t  been a good blogger. I was in the forest walking with my dog wondering why I felt like I had things to say but then would sit and trash everything I wrote.  I think I finally came to my conclusion…….I just want to ME!  Blogging was pressure, I felt like I needed everything to be perfect in order to blog.  Perfect pictures and amazing content.

I am so far from perfect…… I absolutely suck at house cleaning but can’t stand when the house is a mess.  That works really well…. not.  I drink way to much coffee and stay up way to late.  Most likely on my phone to much, I suck at knowing how to dress the kids for the snow.  I snooze way to long and then we run around like crazy people in the morning (this is my speciality).  I laugh when I really really shouldn’t it it is a real problem, and so much more. I don’t want to bore you with all my special gifts.

I am not perfect. So I am just going to be free!  If you like me……. you will stay……..you don’t you might be a troll I just have to keep deleting…… just leave.

 

So back to mothers day. I had an amazing mothers day. Mainly because I forgot it was mothers day and had zero expectations (for my husband lets all be honest). I saw my husband get up early for a Sunday and  thought “thats strange”. I tend to take the kids on the weekends and let him sleep (he is usually up by 5am on the weekdays).   I see he is getting up and taking the kids! WAHOO turn over, spread out and take over all the sheets.

All of sudden I hear them all coming back up stairs…….NO!  Then I hear Coco’s sweet little voice we can’t say Happy Mothers Day to her she is still sleeping. All of them come in sing  to the melody of happy birthday but changing it to happy mothers day. I love it. They bring me breakfast in bed and then my husband had a list of questions for the kids to answer. They where so funny and random.  My sons favorite thing I do for him is his laundry…..ummm maybe I need to work on that relationship a bit more. Or maybe because when I tell to clean his room everything ends up in the laundry. It was a beautiful Swedish day (lets just take a moment and savor that) ok good. All sunny days here need to be processed because there so far in between.  So me and the girls went out side and made necklaces.   Ahh they where so cute Majken is so random any color any bead, any color on the other hand Coco wants to count the beads, color coordinate and is meticulous.

Stefan then said the kids where going down to his dads which is nothing out of the normal (he is our neighbor). They came back and surprised me with baked cake. So we had a little fika and just hung out it was so fun. They set out my china and the girls just loved drinking out of them for the first time(I am praying don’t break with a smile).  It was so fun and totally what I loved… and I am determined to use the china more with them.   My present was plants.  Say what!   I am sure you are reading this and going what plants, yes I really wanted plants for the garden. Plants are expensive and not really top on our need list.  plus we had to stop and get milk shakes.  It was simple, it was sweet, and just what I need.  Happy Mothers Day to all you fantastic mothers.
