Mother’s Day weekend is nearly here! I’m blessed to have a mother and a grandmother to celebrate. Lily has been plotting something for weeks (with her teacher’s help), so I’m looking forward to being surprised on Sunday.
And can I make a confession? I told Tim that I don’t like breakfast in bed. Are you shocked? I have gamely gone along with it for years, but the truth is that the idea of eating first thing in the morning has never appealed to me. I’m more of a brunch kind of girl. The reason I finally broke the silence was because I really don’t think the kids would remember to do it if Tim didn’t bring it up.
Of course, if the kids remember on their own and want to bring me breakfast in bed, I promise that I will pretend to eat with gusto. Just as I’ve done for 14 years.
And then my treat to myself will be to watch the video of Billy Collins reading “The Lanyard” for the umpteenth time. Collins perfectly captures the essence of the mother-child relationship in the funniest, yet deepest way.
So whether you’re with your mom or missing her, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
