Happy Mother's Day, Parenthackers

Happy Mother's DayJust hopping on to wish you a wonderful Mother's Day. I'm not sure what the day has in store -- which is perfect. Any day I don't have to orchestrate (what's everyone going to eat? what's the weather like? is the science museum open today? Do we have milk? ...ad infinitum) is a Good Day in my book.

Also, Rael and the kids have been creeping around the house with conspiratorial smiles for the last week, which is as fun for me to watch as any gift I could get.

Have a lovely day. You are appreciated.

Happy Mother's Day to you, Asha, one of the patron saints of parenting. You deserve all the joy in the world.

What a lovely thing to say, Stu. Thank you.

Happy Mother's Day to you! Hope you have a special day.

It's 9pm and I can say, with all honesty, that this was the best Mother's Day yet. Full of the classics: flowers, husband-prepared brunch, handmade cards, and a trip to the plant nursery. A totally lovely day. We should lobby the next administration for the institution of Mother's Week. Don't you think? Should we start a petition?

After a lovely morning, in which I was granted the time and space to take a long shower AND read the newspaper (we have a 2 year old and 2 month old btw), I decided one day a month should be Mother's Day. No gifts necessary, but lots of Daddy help and Mommy relaxing. We all deserve at least that much.
