Somebody told me last week that they think Mother's Day should be for the moms who are in the trenches. I'm sure that's debateable, but this mom in the trench really enjoyed such a thoughtfully-planned yet flexible day. Alone time, enthusiastic kids, good food, and plenty of family time. Isn't that how motherhood should always be?
