Mom for a Day

Yesterday was Mother's Day.  I gave my wife the usual gift -- I do everything that needs to be done around the house, and she gets to lounge around and do exactly whatever she pleases.  My work started with planning a menu and doing the grocery shopping on Saturday.  On Mother's Day, I made a fancy brunch and dinner.  Luckily the kids helped out.  It was a ton of work.  I like to cook, but I rarely have the time to do it right.

There is something to be said for trading places with someone.  Now, my wife is a great cook, but even she doesn't make elaborate meals every day.  But, I am sure there are many days where she is as tired as I was at the end of the day.  Really appreciating what she does every day is a great gift that we all share.
