Yeah, It’s All About Me

Mother’s Day.
This year it really is all about me. Finally.

This will be my twelfth Mother’s Day. As a mother, that is.
And last year was the only one that took into account what I wanted to do on that sacred day.Housewife with Fresh Pie --- Image by © Royalty-Free/Corbis
Because last year was the first year that we didn’t live by either of the mothers.

Previous Mother’s Days were dictated by the desires and feelings of mothers of higher ranking (i.e. my mother, Warren’s mother, my grandmother, z”l).
Last year, however, was the first time that I got to eat where I wanted to eat, have a massage, and spend as little time as necessary with my children. The perfect Mother’s Day.

But something even more amazing is happening this Mother’s Day: my mother is coming to ME.

Because this year, I am participating is something fantastic. I have been selected as a member of the 2013 Listen To Your Mother: Wilmington cast. Along with 17 other engaging storytellers, I will be sharing an intimate look into my motherhood. My story. My perspective.

This year, we’ll be doing exactly what I want to do. And my mother (and assorted other relatives) will be with me.

Tickets are on sale here.

I will be there in spirit. But in actuality, I’ll be drinking coffee & eating breakfast in bed. 😉
