happy mother's day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. May this be the one day out of the year on which your children are so wonderful that you don't desire to lock them in a closet or cover their mouths with duct tape.

My kids have made this a day to remember: James painted a picture frame at school, so now, every day I can look at the smirking face and flyaway hair of my darling firstborn. (It really is cute, but I just wish my kid could refrain from making ridiculous faces for even ONE photo.)Evan, instead of gifts, decided to surprise me by demonstrating some new talents he's learned. These include putting a DVD in the player by himself, emptying my sewing basket of its pins, throwing things in the toilet, throwing a cup of water around the living room (this was done on purpose, presumably to see how many things he could soak with water in one go), and moving a chair into the kitchen to reach the leftover Easter candy on top of the microwave and thus eat all of the jellybeans (this last one before I even managed to get out of bed this morning).

But we're going to play mini-golf, and I'm refusing to cook dinner tonight, so all in all it's not such a bad day.

Thought I'd share some mother's day links -- fun whether you're a mother or not:

Happy Mother's Day to you and your moms.
