I don’t even know how we will be spending Mother’s Day this year. I have someone coming to clean my house for me for the first time ever. Best Mother’s Day I can imagine even although it’s totally unconventional and probably a bit weird. I think we might celebrate Mother’s Day on Monday too because we like to stretch holidays and birthdays out for as long as possible. It’s kind of our mode of operation around here. We try to have cake as often as possible. That’s pretty much a family rule.

Enjoy your day!

  1. I’d try to stretch it for the month. And start shooting for monthly visits from that cleaning lady – it will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Thank you also for the shout-out – you are one awesome bloggy friend! Hope you had a great day and no dishes whatsoever. xoxo Mar

  2. Stretching red-letter days is a rule here, too. For example, I always celebrate pre-birthday and post-birthday…my Englishman says: “it helps you with getting back to the real-life mode after everything is done” 🙂
