Mother's Day and Other Fairy Stories.


Love Love Love days where we step back into childhood and suspend our disbelief and play make believe games where everyone is in on the pretence ... well except maybe for Hallmark. I think those people have to be in some denial to be able to do what they do ....with a straight face ....


Mother's Day is one of those days for me.

That is where everyone in the family contributes to making sure their mother smells and looks like a mom for at least the duration of the church service. They take her out from where they keep her hidden all the other days of the year and perfume her up, maybe even spa her out a bit, put a suitably motherly type dress on her, and present her to the world. Someone hands her some flowers, she eats burnt toast and drinks her luke warm tea in her bed and pronounces it all wonderful.

And then in a really cruel twist of fate we tend to give her bath soaps and sets and lotions and foams .... taunting her, reminding her that she has not bathed in privacy without someone trying to climb into the tub with her or throwing little metal cars and action heroes at her for years ... and that she is not going to have the opportunity to bathe alone again until she is probably so old that she will either have to have a nurse in there with her or she will be wheeled into a shower.


And on that magical day she gathers the macaroni depictions of her, and the handprint pics which thankfully blend right into the print of the dress because they are never coming out, and she sighs .... it will probably take her most of the week to clean up the mess everyone made giving her a "day off."
