Mom's Day Week

I can't believe Sunday is Mother's Day. I miss my mom, everyday, but especially on Mother's Day. A couple of years ago before she got sick, I did a Mother's Day Week tribute all about the reasons I love being a mom, and wrapped it up with a special tribute to my own mom, and the funny things we remembered about her. I treasure those posts now.

Lately around here "mom" has become a pretty loosely used term. Sean is off school until June 2nd, and I'm the one going to work now. Not daily, but most days. I think the kids have made a shift in their thinking because suddenly they have started asking Sean to do things that they would normally bug me about.

He's their new mom, I guess.

He's a good mom, too. He does laundry, dishes, cleans, and fixes the various needs around the house.

Even though I don't have my own mom around, I'm glad he's taken over part of my job so I can have more time to do the things I need to do.

I have a friend whose mom died last month - and I was thinking that this will be a tough weekend for her. Thanks for the reminder - so I can at least acknowledge her sorrow once more.
