“I want some peace and quiet”.
I have a cousin who asks every year, How Come Mother’s Day Always Costs ME Money?
The truth is, if you like (or don’t like) Uppity, who she is, what she is, what she says, how she says it, how she is and how she makes you just a little crazy, you can thank her brilliant, driven, funny, savvy, lovable and delightfully unorthodox late Mother for all of it. So much of who we are was given to us by our mothers.
If your Mother is still with you, you are one lucky puppy, at least from where I sit. Honor her. And if you are a Mother, I hope your children understand how lucky they are that you made the sacrifices to raise them and love them. Hopefully, this will be one day out of the year where you can have what you want, which, according to my Mother, would be “Some peace”.
If your Mother is not still with you, I know how you feel and will sulk with you today.
Truth is, every mother I know is smarter than any of the cretins in Congress or the White House. We need a Mom for President and here is why:
And here are some kids who obviously appreciate their mommies.
