It Takes A Village – VNV Tuesday: Defining Mother’s Day 5/9/17

My mom, the PE major, about 1948

Sunday is Mother’s Day, and for the first time in almost a decade, I’m going to be spending the actual day with my daughter. In our family, we’re pretty relaxed about observing holidays on the designated day, so when The Kiddo invited me down for the weekend, I was surprised, but jumped at the opportunity. Following our personal tradition, the visit will consist of “doing what Mom wants to do with no complaining.” It will also be a far cry from earlier celebrations of Mother’s Day in the country’s history.
