Someone on facebook named Mary Carpenter posted this touching Mother's Day request to her children and I have seen it popping up all over the place. You should go read it. I will wait.
Mary's request is nice but I decided to write my own version. Here it is:
So I've decided to be proactive and tell my kids what I want for mother's day. Here it is:
Mother’s Day is coming up, and I thought I should tell you what I want. This way there’s no guilty panic or last minute purchasing of flowers at the closest gas station. So, this is what I want, this year and every year after; it’s pretty simple really.
I want your father to take you away for the entire day so I can spend it reading in bed.
