I still remember my first Mother’s Day. I was pregnant with my daughter, enough that it was very obvious I was pregnant. Everywhere we went that day people said Happy Mother’s Day to me. It was the first day it finally hit me that I was going to be a mom.
My first Mother’s Day after she was born was the weekend she said ‘mama’ for the first time. She said ‘dada’ for a long time before, but it felt like my Mother’s Day present to have her say ‘mama’ for me. Of course, she still says daddy is her favorite!
I’ll be celebrating with the kids today, but I need your help… I’m out of questions! If you have a question you want me to answer right here on my blog, send me an email (mary (at) maryethompson (dot) com) or leave a comment here.
Thanks! And Happy Mother’s Day to you moms out there!
I’m taking today off answering questions so I can spend the day with my family. We all get together for brunch. An Easter egg hunt for the kids, food, and time to visit family. It’s a pretty great day.
I wish you and your family a Happy Easter today.
PS Like the cupcakes? I figured this is something Charlie would have out for Easter at Bite Me!

Christmas is always a day of reflection for me. A chance to think back over the year and be thankful for all the things I’ve done. It’s also a good chance to think about the things that didn’t go the way I’d hoped and decide if I still want the same things, and if so, what I’ll do differently to get it.
But mostly, Christmas is a day for me to be happy. A day to enjoy time with my family. A day to see the joy on my kids’ faces when they find presents under the tree and get to open them all. A day to remember what life is like when we were kids. A day for fun.
Please go enjoy your Christmas. Be a kid again. Celebrate all the good things in life.
