Mother's Day

Mother's Day is the one day a year when society has the right mind set. They finally understand how terrific and wonderful moms are and pay them homage as they should. I personally feel moms should be given this attention and tribute every day of the year.

I think bearing a child in my womb should entitle me to 365 days of non-cooking, breakfast in bed and not having to put the kids to bed. Its a sad, sad society in which we live that we are not treated as the highly respected women we are every day.

I do have to say, while visiting the mall the other day I did smile to myself as I watched several fathers pushing strollers with kids throwing tantrums. They were obviously shopping for Mother's Day presents and had to take the kids with them. To me that was a present in itself just watching the fathers sweating while looking at jewelry while rocking the stroller back and forth in their attempt to console the screaming 2 year old inside. I wish I had my camera and could take a picture to send to that mom. That would have been the best present she could have gotten. I would love a picture of my husband in that situation!

Happy Mother's Day to you all! Happy Non-Mother's Day Also!

I totally agree, my husband would much rather do the shopping by himself. HE HE!

OK, so I am now an addict to your blog... you are witty, sarcastic, and tell it like it is. I love it!
I look forward to reading more tales from the potty while trying to nurse and ducking to avoid being sprayed by the hair spray that the 4 year old has gotten a hold of!

I am not a mom in the boilogicial sense, i am foster mom and have been there for 14 very special needs children. In saying this I don't believe hatching a child is what makes you a mom. And stories like this don't honor all mom's just birth mom's and this is something I just don't agree with.
