Mother's Day has not always gone swimmingly for me.  So a few years ago, I mixed things up.  Full story in today's Chicago Parent (click HERE).

  6. Mother's Day as a break from being mom sounds a bit like bliss. Such a great idea!

  7. Loved your article, Marianne! I have been asking for the gift of time alone for years, and I can attest that it is the gift that keeps on giving. Happy Mother's Day!

  8. You look adorable in this photo...I would have NEVER guessed you were carrying an 11 lb., 24" baby in there. Amazing!

    I would have loved to have seen the jello slinging fight. haha...or at least know the reason behind it. :)

  9. I totally agree! Each year I try to spend as little time with my children on Mother's Day as possible. It makes me love them more :)
