my soon-to-be-mother’s day weekend


We had a nice little weekend. Saturday was my last day of work (!) and afterwards we went over to Yannick’s sister’s place for dinner with their family and his parents for Mother’s Day. It was the first time I’ve had lobster in about a year and it was SO good! I’m a lobster purist- I prefer it withOUT the garlic butter, and this time it was so sweet and so tender…yummy! I’ve had no appetite STILL these days, and I had already told Yannick’s mom that I would share a steak and a lobster with him because there was no way I could finish one on my own, so when she plopped a whole one on my plate after I’d eaten about 1/4 of my steak I started offering up parts. Good thing I skipped the rest of my steak- I ate the entire lobster! Mmmmm

On Sunday we prepared a quote for Yannick’s work then went over to the Montreal General to see his grandmother who was recovering from surgery. Then we went to my parents’ house for a barbeque for dinner. My mom (rightfully) refused to organize it, so my dad had spent the day shopping. It was a meat smorgasborg! He got angus burgers, bison burgers, salmon burgers, shrimp burgers, lamb kabobs and balogna to slice and cover with maple syrup like my mom does. Not to mention bacon for the burgers. Thank god I reminded him to buy some salad and fruit- the only veggie’s he’d bought were some monster tomatoes and onion to slice for the burgers!

My parents actually managed to find a “Happy Soon-to-Be-Mother”‘s Day card, and got me a sweet gift – a breast-feeding night gown from Thyme Maternity with a matching little cover up.
But what I couldn’t believe was Yannick. On his OWN he went and picked out the cards for his family and my family, plus he got a card for my parents from the baby, thanking them for all the stuff they’ve done for us and given us. THEN he got me 2 cards- one from him and one from the baby!

I’ll leave you with the cover of the card he gave me from the baby:

On the inside it says: Oh, well…at least you can say that raising me wasn’t a boring experience.

Knowing the father…this card is so true!

  1. Hi Jennifer,

    I see the baby hasn’t come earlier than planned.:) I’ll be thinking of you tomorrow, and can’t wait to see pictures of the wee one.


    P.S. Maple syrup on bologna – eeeewwwww!


  2. Just thought I’d back you up, maple syrup on sausage or bologna is yummy! Us northerners will put maple syrup on just about anything, though. 😉

    Yannick really came through! What a funny card. 🙂

    I hope everything went well with the C-section!
