..and we celebrated.
If you had said to me a few years ago that I would be celebrating Mother's and Father's day I would not have believed you.
For a long time, I haven't acknowledged these days but put them down to ridiculous, commercially-driven ideas.
I still pretty much believe that.
Perhaps not so much the "ridiculous" anymore - I'm a mama now right, and we need to grab the acknowledgment where we can.
Gunt and I are getting better at celebrating in a way that feels good for us.
Celebrating at-home fun style or in the outdoors.
Celebrating with small, personal touches of love and appreciation.
Celebrating that builds relationship and connection with each other and with ourselves.
Celebrating with food - focus on the "specialness" and not the amount.
Celebrating that doesn't involve the consumption of "stuff" because of a lack of ideas of how else to mark it.

A pre-breakfast blindfolded excursion to the beach, a family rock band rehearsal and a free choral concert all made a pretty perfect day for a pretty perfect Papa.
