I have decided that there needs to be more than one mother's day a year. And not for the presents. (Although, I wouldn't say no to those either.) Mother's need sick days. And vacation days. And personal days. I think we should start a movement. We should march on Washington. We should campaign for not one, but four Mother's Days every year. And one of those days should be the designated sick day for all the moms around the world.
Schools would be cancelled -- if all the moms are sick who would take the kids to school? Who would be the teachers?
Offices would shut down--the dad's would have to be around to take care of the kids.
Stores would close--if all the moms were sick, who would need to go shopping? (Okay, maybe not all stores. But at least half of them.)
And scientists around the world would have discovered a way to funnel all sick days into that one. On no other days, would mother's be able to get sick. Only that one day a year. . .
And they would also come up with a discovery to keep any children from getting sick on Mother's Sick day. (Because there is nothing worse than cleaning up vomit, when you are already nauseous.)
The other 3 Mother's days would be spent doing whatever you wanted.
A girl can dream, can't she?
