Mother’s Day is Sunday and it has basically become my favorite day of the year.
In case you didn’t already know from previous years here on the blog, my son and I have a very special Mother’s Day breakfast tradition.
We started our early morning breakfast tradition back in 2010 which was the first Mother’s Day after my divorce. Well, technically it was after the divorce process started and we moved out of the house to where we still live now.
This will be our 8th year in a row for our Mother’s Day breakfast tradition and I can’t even believe it! When we first started celebrating Mother’s Day like this, my son was only six years old! How weird does that sound now?!
When he was little, he used to wake up so early that I figured, Hey! Let’s beat everyone to the Premier Diner on Mother’s Day and do something special for breakfast since we are up at the crack of dawn anyway!
Our Mother’s Day breakfast tradition has become something we talk about all year. The last few years have been a mix between the Premier Diner and Maureen’s Kitchen. We have yet to decide where we will go this Sunday morning.
Will we try something new? Will we go to the diner? Maureen’s Kitchen? What are we having? Will I have baked oatmeal? Pancakes? Something totally different?
Are we waking up early to be there at 7:00 am or should we aim for more of a brunch this year?
It’s a big dilemma now that my son is a teenager and actually sleeps late. Why would I want to wake him? Who subjects themselves to a teenager so early in the morning by choice?
But why would we want to wait in line for our special breakfast tradition once it’s super crowded?
Of course I will share all of the details from our Mother’s Day breakfast tradition on Monday. I always do! In fact, one of the best parts about having this blog is that I have all of these fun moments documented.
