I still refer to my mom as "mommy" on occasion, mostly when I'm being cute, or grateful for something and feeling shy about expressing it.
In any case, happy self-identified as female parenting role model day! Mom, Mommy, Mama, Mummy, Momsies, Mother, Ina, whatever you call yourself, have a lovely day and may you be blessed every day!!
I asked my mom once why there wasn't a "kids day".
She said every day was Kids Day.
Really, you can't argue with that.
Hopefully next year we'll be celebrating Mothers Day with either a newborn or a fetus friend!
In the meantime, here's a picture of my beautiful mother and I on my wedding day!
