Mother’s Day exasperates me. It is such a silly holiday but I don’t want to piss off all the moms – especially those related to me in some way – by not recognizing that day. In all honesty, it just seems like one more reason to buy Hallmark stock.
I’m absolutely appreciative of all the moms out there. I love them for what they do, without recognition or reward almost all of the time. I think instead of a pretty card, they should all get a nice day off (at least, that’s what I want). As that doesn’t really happen, a card seems kind of lame to me.
I’ve been a mom for 2 Mother’s Days now. While it gives me warm fuzzies to be a mom, I still don’t really care about the particular day. This year, I asked Zach if he wanted to do anything for Mother’s Day. He paused for a moment, and then replied, “No.”
Later, he asked me if I wanted to do anything for Mother’s Day. That was nice of him. I couldn’t really come up with anything, aside from going out to dinner, which we would probably do anyways.
At any rate, I sent out a few cards, which will definitely arrive late. I apologize to the recipients. I really did try to get them out on time. I blame it on Luke’s naps. Every time I am putting him down, the darn mailman drives by.
Last year, I got my Mother’s Day card one week late (it was started on the afternoon of Mother’s Day by Zach and Luke), which read, “Happy M Day” in crayon. At least they won’t be that late.
So Happy early “M” Day to all the moms out there.
