I will go see my Mom Friday at her new assistant living home and take her a gift.

What every Queen for a Day does -- invite the kids and other family over, plan the meal, cook the meal, and clean up after everyone. Oh, and don't forget the other daily chores. Maybe I can throw in some yard work or washing the car while I'm at it! It brings it all home being a MOM!

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

Any effort is better than no effort!

I always bring flowers to my mom's grave and sit there talking to her for a while. It will be 11 years this year, but I never miss a Mother's day.

I am volunteering with the race company I run my races with and going to run the Transition Zone with two other volunteers (I was supposed to race but still injured) . We have a nice long bike ride planned (50 KM) for the day as well.

My mom will come to our house for dinner (she lives 3 blocks away from us)

Oh, man. That is this month, isn't it? I would like to go out to lunch, just me and my mother, while L & K's daddy takes over the parenting responsibilities, then when at home, I would like to watch some movies with my kids, while their daddy goes to check on/spend time with his mother.
I don't want to wash a dish, a load of laundry, blah, blah, etc.

My kids and I are volunteering for the Forzani's Mothers' Day Run and Walk as course marshals. The run raises money for the neonatal intensive care units. There were 14,000 runners last year.

My oldest daughter asked if I can celebrate Mother's Day one day early since her husband's brother and fiance is visiting from out of town and they all wanted to go to Monterrey on that Sunday with his parents. I told her of course I could move it, so we will celebrate it the Saturday before. It shall be fun. I will make a nice early dinner. I want to include some of my new good foods such as stuffed avocados and homemade hummus. I will keep menu healthy and light so my daughter will feel great in her dress since it is also prom night for my youngest daughter. My oldest daughter will help her get ready. I will be taking photos of my daughter and her friend that are going together and another friend wants to come in and curl her hair ,so it sounds like a busy fun day! HappY Mother's day!
