BLOG: A Mother’s Right to Annoy

Mother’s Day is difficult for me because my own mother is deceased. This is my 9th Mother’s Day without her and, as anyone who has lost their Mom will tell you, it never gets easier.

I don’t feel right NOT buying a present for her, either. I LOVED buying things for Mom when she was alive. She rarely treated herself so it was fun to buy her frivolous or fancy things. When you asked what she wanted, she would say lame stuff like, “I really need a new bra and a slip. You could buy it at Wal-Mart.” No Mom, I’m NOT buying you underwear. It’s creepy.

BLOG: My Very First “Muffins With Mom”

I went to my very first “Muffins with Mom” this morning. If you don’t have kids you probably don’t know that every year, right before Mother’s Day, elementary schools serve muffins and coffee to the moms. Dads get “Donuts with Dad,” which the kids secretly like more because everyone knows donuts are better than muffins. Despite this, my daughters were REALLY excited about having me there this morning.

BLOG: Happy Mother’s Day! Here’s Your Annual Anxiety Attack

I ask for the same thing every year for Mother’s Day:

Shopping money & time to go out & spend it.

This was a special treat back when my kids were small and had to be held, entertained and wiped frequently. A little time alone to shop was like a spa treatment. Actually, EVEN BETTER if I found something on sale that fit nicely. I remember one particular late night trip to Super Target that felt like HEAVEN. The store was cool and well lit, so I got a Starbucks and even tried on clothes. It was so far beyond my usual scope of experience at that point, it almost felt illicit. Continue reading →
