Mother's Day at Crystal Bridges

Mother’s Day at Crystal Bridges

| On 13, May 2013

Before I became a mother I had absolutely no idea how important Mother’s Day is. I don’t say that proudly. Thoughtfulness is not something that comes naturally to me, and this year I’ve worked hard to improve in this area.

Now that I’m a mom I love Mother’s Day more than Christmas, not because of gifts, but because of the spirit and mood of the day. The weather is warm-ish, flowers are blooming, and everyone seems a little more polished and put together everywhere you look.

This year my parents came to town and we spent the day at Crystal Bridges Museum, which was just perfect. Beautiful setting. Beautiful Meme. Beautiful Charlie. My heart was full.

Well, except for the entire time we were inside the museum when Charlie was saying, “I want to go play. When do we get to go play. Mommy, I want to leave. Can we leave? Where can we play?”

Really? Now? Why can’t we have this magical day full of flowers and mamas and brunch?

Oh well. That’s what you get when you take a three-year-old to a museum. She’s lucky she’s cute.

I hope you all had a fabulous Mother’s Day that looks idyllic in pictures.

    I love this…thanks for sharing. It’s nice to know my thoughts are similar to another momma.

  2. HOW did we not see you? We did this exact thing Sunday afternoon! With my parents in from out of town… Great minds think alike. Obviously :) And I totally hear you on the Mother’s Day appreciation. This holiday my family celebrates now — it is barely recognizable as the same holiday we celebrated for my mom as a kid. I’m so, so glad I get it now.

      We didn’t see each other because there were eleventy million there Sunday. Holy cow. It’s like we live in parallel universes.
