From The Absence of Alternatives, a very well-written blog by a woman who happens to be a mommy:
"Mom, when do you want your Mother's Day party to be?"
"Hmmm. I was hoping that I could just relax. I don't really feel like a party since I don't want to clean up afterwards."
"Hmm, you should be like Obama's wife."
"Remember how she went to ten [inaugural] parties and she didn't even complain? You should be more like her."
The least I can do is keep the computer off today. I hope all you other moms have a wonderful Mother's Day.
