    Happy Mother’s Day to you!

    Mother’s Day always falls smack dab in the middle of finals which, for the last 6 years of my life, has been horribly inconvenient and stressful. Major props to your daughter for arranging the flowers, especially long distance.

    P.S. We’re still waiting for my brother to emerge.

    Happy Mother’s Day and I hope you get that parade.

    Me, I’ll skip the parades and balloons and prefer a card with a heartfelt message. :)

    “Most likely the motherhood parties are in fact your kids’ celebrations… everyone looks at your kid and claps and makes toasts. And you sit in the back and from the way you feel they could just as well be clapping for you.”

    Always, always such wisdom.

    Happy Mother’s Day. :)

    You know, I couldn’t agree with you more. Did you know that the brain isn’t fully developed until after age 25?? That certainly explains a lot. I have one son that is 26 and one that is 21. I keep counting the days until the 21 year old is 25… LOL Happy Mother’s Day to you. And I think that it’s actually completely ridiculous to celebrate a person’s birthday. THAT is the day that a party should be thrown for the mothers….after all, we did all the work. :)

    happy mother’s day! and coming from a mom with two very small children it’s always a blessing to hear honesty such as yours. a parade, yes, but a wedding would suffice…right? :)

    You would be so proud: I presented my mother with a GIGANTIC (rather garish and outlandish) JUMBO Mothers Day card. HAHA! She was pleased. I was happy she was pleased. Now: SHOE SHOPPING! What better way to bond?

    Happy Mother’s Day to you! I blew it on the card for my mom but just spent two hours composing a blog post. Hope that will suffice?

    It’s 2009. Things changes. Parades go out of style. Jumbo cards, shoe shopping, blog posts, my guess is that those count big. Of course I’m assuming the blog post said “mom you are the best mom in the whole world…” Thanks again for the good wishes everyone.
