Mom, the most under appreciated job on earth!

Tomorrow is mothers day and after today I'm really just not in the mood and wished I had to actually work my full time paying job. My ideal mothers day would be to get a solid 8 hours of sleep, to be able to sleep in, have coffee when I wake. I'd like to spend some quality time with my kids and husband (who I'm fighting with at the moment), get some time to myself guilt free a massage would be nice, and to return home to a clean house where the laundry's been washed and bathrooms cleaned where I didn't have to do it all myself. Then I would like a genuine thank you for everything I do as a mom everyday that is undervalued and unappreciated!
The reality is I'll be up 3 times tonight with my 13 month old who is teething, my 5 year old will be up way before I'm ready! My husband will be the one who sleeps in because he doesn't get home till 3 am, however he'll leisurely stroll down around 11 and act like there is so much exciting stuff planned. His plans will more then likely include fishing but he'll try and twist it like we're spending quality time as a family which would be true but it's Morhers day! I'll get mad tell him to just go and I'll spend my day off trying to get the house clean and laundry done while entertaining and feeding two kids because my own mom will be here to stay for a few days on Monday!
Sorry for my rant but I'm sure there are moms who can relate! I know looking back I didn't appreciate my own mom enough for all she did for the family, but now that I have my own family it puts everything she did into a new perspective! So happy mothers day to all you moms out there thank you for everything you do!

i hate my mother's day! my husband tries to twist it too, that we're spending time together as a family -really? you mean you'll watch tv all day while i do the same things i do every day???
yep, mother's day sucks in my house too. i feel your pain. and your aches and head aches and all of it!
so instead of wishing you a happy mother's day, i wish you a painless mother's day.
