Win-Win or No Win?

I have struggled with this all day today...I felt like this morning as we were trying to figure out what to do for Mothers Day that I was not sure if I felt like I was in a win-win situation or a no-win and this is why:
Going to brunch or lunch is so much fun but lets be honest, I cannot remember the last time I had a pleasant quiet meal at a restaurant with my wild tornadoes there. If I sit down for more than 10 minutes at a time it is a miracle and after that FORGET having the boys stay in their seats. If we are with my parents we all kind of eat in shifts as to who will be chasing who. So to be honest, going out to eat is not really special or fun right now, much less relaxing.

And then my sweet sweet husband wanted to cook brunch which was so nice, but lets be honest again...if he is cooking, then who is watching the boys??? ME!!! I would MUCH RATHER be cooking in the kitchen then chasing them when I do that anyways every other day of the week! So that option is not really a great one either. So its like a no win situation! Going out is not fun, staying in and having Kyle cook is not fun, and staying home while he watches the boys while I cook is just every other day (not true, that would kind of be a treat since I usually have to cook and watch the boys at the same time)! But you get my point here...

But then on the flip side I would not even be celebrating this day if I did not have children and I am so lucky to have 2 beautiful boys, an amazing husband and my parents in town to celebrate with. I definitely do not want to sound ungrateful! Anyways, all in all it was a nice day and we did end up going out for a quick breakfast before church.

I do realize that we all look desperately tired and I still am since the boys decided not to nap today, but oh well! I think I will sleep in about 18 more years!


  1. Happy Mother's Day! We must have missed you guys at church, see you soon!

  2. Happy Mother's Day! I hope you have a good week and trip down to the lake next weekend. I wish we could see you!!

  3. Happy Mother's Day! I hope you get some down time to rest because you deserve it!!! You and Callen and I need to get together soon!!!

  4. You forgot to mention another "con" to having your husband fix a meal - clean-up! Has a man ever wiped down the counter, cleaned the dishes so well that you don't have to rewash them or swept the kitchen floor after a meal??? I don't think so! That's why on Mother's Day everyone should just eat cereal or pbj's all day!
