This may have been my favorite mothers day to date. Our son and a bunch of his friends called me from Sandy Eggo and yelled Happy Mothers Day, then he made me tell them my hipster joke. *
We drove the four and a half hours to our daughter’s college to pick up a carload of her stuff and hug her a lot ( her last final is tomorrow). We had Spenser with us, so we went to McDonalds and got McNuggets and ate them in the McPark. We hung out for a while and then got Starbucks. (love)
*How many Hipsters does it take to change a lightbulb?
(It’s an obscure number, you’ve probably never heard of it)
Also, Spenser’s adoption story was featured on the Furever Dachshund Rescue website.
Everyone has probably seen this Time mag cover by now. The mom looks so angry, the kid is probably getting powdered milk. And look at his face. He’s thinking, “I’m missing Tball for THIS?”
Mika Brzezinsky made the excellent point on Morning Joe, that they put the titillating photo of the hot young mom on the cover when the story inside was about Dr. William Sears. I’m actually surprised that she is not carrying a briefcase and a spatula.
My biggest problem the cover is that it makes breastfeeding moms look edgy and weird when they have been fighting for a sliver of acceptance for decades.
Happy Mother’s Day!
