It’s true what they say, you know—the crystal really doesn’t fall far from the cluster. img 3367 - Happy Mothers' Day!

Happy Mothers’ Day to all the moms out there—I’m spending the day with my family in New Jersey. Last year we did a barbecue at my parents’ house and a brownie bake-off, and this year it’s lunch at my aunt’s.

The year before that, we did Mothers Day on a Saturday, though I can’t remember why. That was also the 50th anniversary of the FDA’s approval of the Pill, interestingly enough.

This year I happen to be the age my mother was when she had me, so that kind of adds a layer of WTF to this holiday. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m aware I have a biological clock, though I’m not sure what time zone it’s on anymore. I think it got set back during those twenty minutes my internship partner and I played Food Group Bingo with the manic bipolar kids. I cannot imagine being responsible for a small human at this point in my life. I mean, jeez, sometimes I look at the plants and think, “If only you could just water yourselves…” So yeah.

How are you spending Mothers’ Day?
