I try to be patient, and understanding, and embrace the myth of the Super Mommy. For all the trying, there are still days when I want to stamp my foot up and down and scream at the top of my lungs.

I guess I was expecting a Hallmark Moment today. I didn't get one. I feel like crap, my head hurts, I feel guilty for expecting an email message from my husband telling me happy mother's day. I feel guiltier because there's a cute little girl asleep in the next room who reminds me of her daddy and I should just be happy that she's alive and doing so well. Why can't I be happy with the reality of it? Why do I want some sort of mushy sentiment? A hug?

Most of the other women I know would be extremely pissed right now. Not me. I wonder what I did to deserve being forgotten.

Oh dear.

You know, men are usually surounded by television ads and signs and banners reminding them of these things. Even WITH the television ads and signs and banners I had to remind my BF to send his mom a mother's-day greeting. And my BF loves his mom very much!

I expect being away in th military isn't very condusive to remembering these things--he didn't forget YOU, he wasn't reminded to remember the date. Belated mothers' day wishes to you, and congrats on your sweet little one's continuing health.
