Mother’s Day Confession: I’m in the mommy stage at which I don’t want to be celebrated. I just want to be left alone. I would like it to be a day off. No obligations. No plans. I can stay in bed all day if I want or I can decide to do something fun with the family. Either way, I just want to be free of expectations for one day.

I know in a few years I will be begging for my kids to spend the day with me. So, I will appreciate whatever happens tomorrow.
