Hey All

What is everyone doing for Mother's Day this year? Do you have plans with your mother or mother-in-law? Do your kids have any plans for you?

Also, we have a great bunch of cool Mother's Day features on the site. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Mother's Day

Host Marti

Our tradition for the last several yrs has been to go to brunch in the morning and then spend the remainder of the day at the park w/ our kids. We bring the bikes, roller blades, frisby, a kite and a picnic lunch (all if the weather is nice). It's been a great way for us to spend quality time together, get out in the sunshine and get some exercise too. Later, if time allows, we visit w/ nearby family. The weekend after Mother's Day, we always celebrate w/ my MIL. She doesn't live near us, and she doesn't drive, so we find it much easier and a lot less stressful traveling to her after the holiday. It's kind of nice b/c we get to celebrate twice, once w/ just us (myself, my husband and our kids, and again w/ the whole family.) Happy Mother's Day, Marti! I hope you enjoy your day. And to all you moms, relax and have fun. My goal for today is to get my laundry done and my house in order so I don't have to think about any of that stuff tomorrow. A clear mind is a happy mind. 8-)

Thanks Concerned My inlaws are here this weekend. My husband's birthday was yesterday so we are celebrating Mother's Day and his birthday this weekend. My mother died a number of years ago, so I really enjoy spending time with my mother-in-law and also with my own daughter. I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day--no matter how you celebrate it in your family. Marti
