Why is there Mother’s Day?

11 Nov

A while ago Ian asked me why there is a Mother’s Day.  This morning, I thought of a good answer.

Because…I am up at 5:45 AM every day even though I would prefer to be a night owl.

Because…I stand by patiently (most days) while you and your brother examine all five boxes of cereal to pick out your correct breakfast choice.

Because while cutting pickles for your sack lunch, I am also dancing with your brother to the Beatles.

And I do all of this before my first cup of coffee.
