This is going to be the best Mother’s Day ever May 8, 2010

Posted by Erin F. Wasinger in Being a mama.

“I’ll take Alice to the hardware store to get that part for the garbage disposal,” Dave said. The day before Mother’s Day. Riiight.

“Wait, wait, wait. Before you go get me something reeeal nice from the hardware store, here’s what I want for Mother’s Day: I don’t want flowers or chocolates or stuffed animals or anything. Please. Don’t get me any of that crap.”

“OK …”

“I want to sleep four hours. Consecutively. Four. Four hours.” I held up four fingers. Read my tired, freakishly purple-rimmed eyes — I want to reach R.E.M. sleep and get twisted up in the bedsheets and wake up with bedhead. This little fantasy runs through my head when I’m lightly bouncing up and down at 3 a.m. with Violet in my heavy arms.

“OK, fine. You can sleep from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.”

“I’ll take it.”
