We had my folks over this evening for a nice, low key mother’s day dinner. We like the idea that as a family there is a special day to recognize the moms in the family, but I have some reservations. I am all for moms, as we all should be, but the Hallmark® quality of the holiday rubs me the wrong way. I make a concerted effort not to take this out on the moms, but it isn’t a day I look forward to with glee.
Mine wife is like-minded, as long as there is an actually sentimental attempt to thank her for being a good mom, which I always do.
