Mother’s Day

Since it’s Mother’s Day tomorrow, the school put on a play in honor of all the mothers yesterday. This is the very same play that caused my son to get banned from watching television during the week because he teased little Kevin for volunteering to be a flower. Every time I think about that I have to giggle though, but at the same time, I was worried about how the play would turn out.

Anyway, so I went to this play and as fate would have it I found a seat right next to Kevin’s mother. To say I was nervous was a bit of an understatement, but I put on my best smile and chatted with her. I mean, it’s likely that our boys are going to be sharing a school, if not a classroom, for a number of years yet, so I had better make the best of things. Anyway, my worrying was in vain as I was happy to see that both boys seemed to have moved beyond their little incident and the play came off without any major disruptions.

During the week, my son and daughter did ask me if there is anything I really want for Mother’s Day, without my husband or I reminding them. It seems that they are getting old enough now, or at least my daughter is, to think about other people besides themselves. Also, I guess they’re feeling like little moguls with their sudden increase in income, but I told them that all I wanted was for them to continue to be good children. Of course, I know they’ll get me card and something that they think I’ll like. So far I’ve gotten everything from arts and crafts projects, which I love, to oversize or undersized tops emblazoned with all variations of the “world’s best mom” theme.

The plan for tomorrow is to have family over, but this time the men are going to do the cooking while the ladies get to kick back and relax. The get-together will take place at our house because we have the largest kitchen and we figured the men would need as much space as possible to move around and get things done without too much of a catastrophe.

On the menu will be bar-be-que chicken and steaks (typical guy food if you ask me), as well as corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, beans and a tossed salad. I’m not complaining, but I’ve already arranged to keep the ladies entertained far away from the cooking and grilling action so we won’t be roped into doing any work.

I’m really looking forward to spending the day relaxing with family and watching as the men slave after us for a change. Of course, on Father’s Day the roles are reversed, but then again, as we always joke, it’s not that different from any other holiday, but I have to admit, a little part of me really does enjoy the shower of attention that Mother’s Day brings. I mean really, who wouldn’t?
