Most Memorable Mother’s DayWoman in the Middle | May 14, 2017
Being a mother means taking the good with the not so good. That was brought home on my most memorable Mother’s Day. We got together that day with our friends Bill and Sue. The guys and our combined three daughters were going to spend the afternoon playing Dungeons and Dragons while Sue and I got to go shopping. Fun! On the way home Sue and I picked up a bucket of chicken for dinner. It was, as I remember, a very nice day. The kids and the guys had a great time and Sue and I got some girl time. The moms didn’t have to cook, either!
Everything was fine until the middle of the night, when Youngest Daughter started throwing up. Nothing brings home the reality of motherhood than a sick child. I just had to laugh, as Hubby and I dealt with the situation. What and end to Mother’s Day!
This year Youngest made me a nice breakfast. She appears to be just fine, LOL! But, in a tradition of slightly weird Mother’s Day happenings, right after breakfast, Blackie spit out a tooth. Not unexpected at his advanced age, but not what the girls had planned for after breakfast entertainment!
And so another memorable Mother’s Day begins!
I truly believe every woman is a mother, as every woman I know nurtures others and so I wish every woman a Happy Mother’s Day. Thank you for all you do to help others, and especially the next generation, along the path of life.
Hey, Mom, do you want to see where I lost my tooth?
