Is it Mom’s day? // Mother’s Day

Whoops! It completely slipped my mind. There I was this morning treating my mom like a mom.

I woke up at 7:40am to find my mom reading on her bed, waiting for me to give her the go ahead and drive me to Union station – located on Bay street, to catch my train to Ottawa. Then, I kindly asked her to make me a sandwich for the commute.

Following that I continued to add fruit to my paper brown bag when it occurred to me that she was just standing in the doorway. Next, I asked, or sarcastically commanded, her to put my luggage in the car. Lastly, she asked me to retrieve my cousin’s novels from my room, so that she could return them to her today and of course I refused to do it.

Mom’s last words, “I guess I’m helping you up until the last-minute today”. I laughed, knowing she was right about that one. Even while on the train I texted my mom, and asked her to mail the postcards – addressed to some friends – that I had accidentally left on my desk at home.

All of a sudden, it hit me, and I emergency texted,

“HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY MOM, I LOVE YOU. DID YOU REMEMBER IT WAS MOTHER’S DAY???”

In my defence, over the last two weeks that I’ve been home, my mom and I have been doing a lot of mother-daughter activities.

Just last night I invited myself and my brother, Matthew, to my parents “group-on” – fancy dinner – in the Distillery District at Tappo Restaurant, so that we could spend some more quality time together. This event quickly turned into our mother’s day celebration before my departure back to school. We had a fabulous time.

Following dinner I cancelled all my tentative plans with friends in order to watch It’s complicated – the movie with Meryl Streep –  with my mom because I love her oh so much!

Just because the world has designated today as mother’s day, does not mean your mom wouldn’t appreciate it if you spent time with her outside of today. Though my decision to stay in last night could have been influenced by my via rail departure time – 9:30am – we watch movies all the time together so it isn’t as though she needed me to do this or expected it.

Mom is mom, and I love her for it. No matter what you ask of her, or when, she’s more than willing to have your back.

    You do not have to feel guilty about Mother’s Day today. We spent time last night with the four of us and watched a movie. Mother’s Day does not have to spend only May it is the quality time spent together during the year.
