Mother's Day - It's Complicated
I had it in my mind to write about the various internal conflicts that Mother's Day causes for me every year — in terms of loving my daughter, missing my mom, and wishing my daughter could celebrate with grandmothers. But I've written it all before, and I don't have much new to say.
But Patrick works hard every year to make it great, and I got lovely gifts, and got to spend the day with my family and not doing work, and we had dinner at Smack Shack, and that was in the end a special kind of wonderful.
Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers I know (and to all those with mothers — see, that's everyone!). Because really, it gets a little complicated for us all.
