It was nonetheless a wonderful day. Actually, I think I'm not remembering it as clearly as I should. There was one point Mike and I sat on the couch in the front room and looked at each other with that occasional look we do. No words are ever exchanged but it has come to mean, "What in the world have we gotten ourselves into?" It usually includes deep huffs of breath from one or the other of us, and lots of eye rolls.
Some days are like that. Mother's Day or not.
