I don't have a Mother to celebrate with. My kids are grown and have other people in their lives that need them also. My MIL doesn't do any holidays. So I'm kinda set free from all the commercialism on this given Sunday every 365 days.
I was a Mother for the first time the Sunday before Mother's Day in 1980. My early Mother's Day Gift.
Now we do a Birthday and Mother's Day combined to honor the B-day guy Brandon and those who are the moms on a day that is convenient for all. We actually did the calendar Mother's Day on that weekend.
Happy Birthday Brandon.
