I was searching and searching through photos and quotes to post a thought-provoking and interesting blog about Mother's Day, but came up empty handed. The origins of today's commercial entity have their roots in the 19th Century Mother's Day for Peace, which is admirable and which I believe the tradition of which should (and does in some places) continue.

But with two young and very demanding children, I am going to be satisfied with a Mother's Day of Peace, which means that I intend to:
  • sleep in
  • leisurely read the newspaper
  • putter on the computer and play mindless games
  • garden, garden, garden
  • sort though my photos and burn cds
  • scrapbook
  • read
  • enjoy a bbq prepared by Mr. C

I love you Mr. C, son and babe :) xo From Mum

    Happy Mother's Day, to you, Cathy, and all mothers everywhere. Mother's deserve more than just one day a year to be officially honored.

    Happy Mother's Day! Hope your day ended up just as you planned.

    Just as an aside - when we used to ask my dad what he wanted for Christmas he always replied with "How about a little peace and quiet!" :-)

    Congratulations on being such a nice Mom :) Over here in Portugal, Mother's day used to be in one of the various holidays for the Virgin Mary in December. But later is was changed into the 1st sunday of May.
