Mother's Day. A difficult holiday. Exciting to be a new Mom. Still heartbreaking to be reminded that my Mom isn't here to share in this joy with me. And to add to it, my Father passed away on Mother's Day 15 years ago.

I tried not to think of the situation with the parents and enjoyed being spoiled with heart shape pancakes, relief from baby duties, and a gorgeous "mother/daughter" necklace.

It was funny to hear hubby say to Lauren - as she began crying - "now what did we talk about? We said we'd be good for Mommy today." How cute is that?

Ohmigod! I love picturing the two of them having a little conversation about how the day should go, Lauren learning the whole in's and out's of the Big Day and so on!!!

Tommy's been talking to my belly a bit but afterwards I always have to say, "Oliver, Daddy's voice isn't really that deep so when you come out and see him, don't be surprised."

Sorry your Mom's Day can be so bittersweet, fortunately you're starting new memories that should hopefully ease the pain a bit.

I feel your pain of not having your mom on Mother's Day. My mom has also passed. Finally, this year - after 6 motherless Mother's Days, I had a great day! I made a point of NOT thinking about the loss of my mother and actually enjoying being the mother. Ahhh, so bittersweet indeed!
