My idea of a perfect Mother's Day present is to be left alone with some take-away and my laptop. ABM is a better parent than I am because he chose to spend Father's Day with his kids. He took them to church and then out to the Chinese buffet, which is their favorite Sunday dinner. He used his day to show the kids a good time. That's why I, a woman who could have stayed happily single and childless the rest of her life, decided to marry and procreate with this man. I knew he had the makings of a good dad.
(If you are reading this, LS, be advised that this is as mushy as I get.)
