Here are my Mother's Day thoughts:
1. If you pass on your bizarre and dark sense of humour to your son, you have only yourself to blame when your Mother's Day card is the birthday card you sent him earlier that month, recycled, and with all the irrelevant bits crossed out.
2. For the same reason, your older daughter's version of 'buying you a drink for Mother's Day' may involve her sellotaping a teabag inside your card.
3. Sending your youngest daughter a text saying, 'Happy Mother's Day. Oops. No. That's YOUR line.' is likely to be taken offence at, however funny you thought it was at the time.
4. When your kids have left home, taking yourself and your husband out for a Mother's Day lunch is always going to feel a little strange as you sit there, surrounded by families of 33, on your table for two. On the other hand, it is more peaceful than it was when they were young, not having to a) stop them singing and doing beat box/playing drums on the casserole dishes; b) stop them playing table football with vegetables.
