Week of Want

Husband asked me last night what I wanted for Mother's Day. Ha! I am a veritable cess pit of want, but my Husband doesn't REALLY want to hear about all the things I want that would make my life better or easier or more glamorous or what have you. So I told him that all I wanted that day was to be able to sleep in and then have pancakes and bacon for breakfast. Which is definitely something I want, but by no means EVERYTHING I want.

So I'll let Husband and the girls take care of the sleeping in on Mother's Day for me, but I find myself still wanting to confess all the other things I want for Mother's Day, dammit, frivolous though this may be! And if your dear spouse is anything like mine and doesn't really want to be troubled by the yawning abyss of your wants then all you mamas out there, please lay it on me here in the secret comment cave. I promise not to be offended or panicked by your needs so hanker away! Better yet, post about your desires on your own blog and tell me that you did so in my comments so I can check it out. As far as I'm concerned, this is our week to long, to need, to lust, to daydream! Yeah, I said a whole week. One day is hardly enough to celebrate all our mama-fabulousness, y'know?

And just to start things off before the baby wakes fully and I must rush off to lunch-and-entertainment duties, here's something I want. I want very, VERY much for all the piles and boxes of Husband's papers and magazines and mail, both opened and unopened, to be cleaned out of our living room! I want them to be dealt with, filed, tidied, tossed, burned, shredded, made into an origami mobile, whatever! I just want them gone. That would be a fabulous Mother's Day gift for me.

What about y'all?

I think your husband could totally handle the papers and magazines request. It's a free gift. Men love gifts that don't require them to spend any money!!!

Sleeping in and breakfast sounds wonderful. Throw in not having to do a single dish or housework for the day would make it even better!

I want the stairs through the front yard built. Oh yeah, and to be out of debt. Not too much to ask, right?

You have some good wants. I want my house totally clean. I want to be free of debt. I REALLY want new cell phones. Man, I have a lot of wants all for one day. But I'll take sleeping in and a good meal.

I want to sleep in, have someone else take care of all aspects of child care, read (uninterrupted), clean my house, make dinner.

And more than anything else, I'd love to have a day to myself.

I want the turtle gone so I can stop living in fear of my baby catching salmonella from it. And I want a porch swing. And I want to pig out on caramel corn without worrying about what it will do to my diet.
