A Window into Life in the Suburbs

"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Luke 12:27 (NIV)

Post-Mother's Day Ramblings

Do you find Mother's Day a non-event?
Not that it matters, of course. But with a lot of these celebratory events, it's rather dependent on mum to organize everyone else. And with small children thrown into the mix, who haven't the sense that this is a day set aside to give mum a break... there's no rest for mum with small kiddies.

Even with big kids... they need a bit of prodding. But I ain't doin' it.
The trick is, I imagine, to keep expectations pretty low. Ground level low.

It's one day in 365 days... If I'm going to be really calculating... honestly, I'd rather have well-behaved kids 364 days a year than have one day where I'm treated like a Queen of a constitutional monarchy.

I know... tell me I'm dreamin'...

  1. I'm with you. Me, have a great mother's day - in your dreams :-) They gave me a card that said nice things and then proceeded to not "show" me the love they proclaimed in the card. Disillusioned!


Let me know what you think!
