Love to my mom in North Carolina, who I’ve actually seen in the last six months.
Love to Lydia’s mom, Carol. Funny thing, that phrase. Although lots of people refer to her as Lydia’s mom, she doesn’t like it it when I say it, maybe because it falsely implies that 1) Carol and I aren’t married (we are) and/or 2) Lydia isn’t my daughter (she is).
Hello to all you mothers, old and new; some have said these things never quite as efficiently.
Happy Mother’s Day.
