Mother's Day 2013

I've been AWOL for the past few days.  In spite of my commitment to blog every day, I was too buy enjoying my son and his little family in North Carolina.  So I'll catch up on posts here and there this month.

Meanwhile.  Mother's Day.  Here's my column, which has generated practically zero response.  I'm not sure why.  These things can be baffling for writers--why one thing seems to work, why another doesn't.

Also, meanwhile.  I often wake up feeling kind of bad about things on Mother's Day.  Also again, I'm not sure why.  I dig being a mom.  Obv.  So it's hard for me to account for this traditional feeling of Mother's Day malaise.

ANYWAY.  Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer.  If I haven't already depressed you too much, Happy Mother's Day.  Do whatever floats your boat.  Me, I get to speak to the missionary, which I look forward to with much joy.

I hope that there are cans of cold Dr. Pepper and cupcakes for you on Mother's Day, because you deserve treats galore. You are an awesome mom.

I enjoyed your column, mostly the bit about not liking Mother's Day much, because I don't either and people think it's weird. As a mother of young kids, I will take your advice to heart by skipping the cleaning of the bathroom today and reading to my little ones. Thanks!
