A fantasy I’m dreaming of


It is 8:00a.m.  I stir myself awake, still in a daze but very much aware of the clattering of cutlery in the dining area outside.  I stifle a yawn, stretch and turn over and it was then that I realize hubbs and Ethan were not in bed already.  I quickly got up, brush my teeth and wash up, and as I wipe my face dry, the aroma of freshly made pancakes and waffles greeted me.  With a smile, I waltz into my dining room, where I saw that my darling hubby had made me a breakfast fit for a queen princess!

Both the boys gave me a hug, wished me a Happy Mother’s Day and we had a terrific breakfast together.  We then got ready for church and had a really enjoyable service there.  All the mommies present were given a rose each, as a token of the celebration for Mother’s Day.

We then headed for the beach where we were gonna have a family picnic.  Hubbs had packed a basketful of goodies which included most of my favorite food items like chicken pie, cheese cake, Twisties and oh yeah, some pink guava juice too.  The weather was slightly cloudy with just the right amount of sun.  Perfect to acquire a tan. Which I took full advantage of 🙂 After a couple of hours playing with the waves, building sandcastles and having nothing but fun, we headed for home for our afternoon siesta.

We woke up just in time for dinner at one of my favorite restaurants.  Ethan was on his bestest behavior that night, obediently sitting in his baby chair and eating all by himself.  Not a single crumb of food was dropped.  Of course, for me, margarita was part of what I ordered for dinner too! 🙂

And then we came back home, and got ready for bed.  I read Ethan his bedtime story, Jack and the Beanstalk, gave him a kiss and tucked him into bed.  He looked up at me, reciprocated the kiss and said, “I love you Mommy!  You’re the best Mommy ever!  Happy Mother’s Day!”

Oh yeah, and before I called it a night, hubbs gave me a massage, complete with soothing essential oils and calming music.


Was that good enough a fantasy, SlaveMom?

Ah well, I did go to church today though.  And although I didn’t get that rose, I got a pink carnation and a mini brocade case from Mama’s Nyonya restaurant when we dined there for lunch.  Better than nothing la.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you awesome mommies out there!  May all your wishes come true!

And a very Happy Mother’s Day to my Mama, the queen of my heart and soul!  You’re da best!  I’m so glad I get to spend Mother’s Day with you this year! *grin*  Thank you for the freshly harvested sweet sweet persimmons you brought back from Perth too!  Y-U-M!

Oh, and also a special shoutout to Adino‘s wife, Poey Chin, who just qualified to celebrate her very first Mother’s Day!  Congratulations Adino and Poey Chin, on the arrival of little Rachel!

Now, since it’s already Mother’s Day today, I’m gonna twist this tag a wee bit and give a chance to the daddies instead to fantasize about Father’s Day coming up in June.  Fair, no?
