Mother’s Day

Happy (belated) Mother’s Day to all the mama’s out there.
This was my very first Mother’s Day! As a kid the most celebrating we ever did for Mother’s Day was giving my grandmothers flowers and making crafts at school to give to our moms. Other than that my family didn’t really celebrate Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Since my boyfriend and I have been together we’ve attended his family celebrations of Mother’s Day & Father’s Day dinners.
I’m more of a wallflower, I prefer attention to not be on me. That does play a part in why I don’t really care for either days celebrations. I kind of rather not make a big deal out of it like the way my family did it. I always thought that you should show your parents appreciation throughout the year, or make an effort to. That one day doesn’t really mean much when there’s still 364 days out of the year when you could show it. Quite honestly the crap that parents put up with and take care of on a daily basis, kids should be showing their parents love and appreciation a lot more than just once a year.

I’m not bashing Mother’s Day, I just don’t think the huge gathering and celebration is meant for me. Who knows maybe next year when we implement our holidays strictly for our family we’ll include Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, I prefer intimate celebrations with our little family better than loads of people celebrating with us. We’ll just have to see what next year brings.

Easter

I’m a day late but I hope everyone had a great Easter!
We didn’t really do much for Siri (my nickname for my daughter, not the Apple assistant), she’s only 6 months old and doesn’t really understand the whole point of holidays yet. I know some of you might think I’m an awful mom because I don’t do all the first holidays, but trust me I’ll make up for it when she gets older and actually remembers them. Our holidays were spent with a lot of our family members. We ate a big lunch at my one of my grandmothers, then went to my boyfriend’s father’s for dinner. We tend to do a lot of driving around to different places on holidays. Our family is huge, and it makes holidays a little less enjoyable when you’re stuck in a vehicle for what seems like most of the day.

Although we love spending all this time with family but having our own little family makes us want to spend the holidays with them. Coming January 2019 we will have our own system and traditions for holidays and I can’t wait. It’s going to be so weird not being around everyone we are normally with but at the same time I can’t wait for us to be a little family of our own on holidays so we can celebrate with each other.
