I guess there is hope at recouping some semblance of love for their dad when we have a family carpet picnic and watch Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy tonite.
(NOTE: I, unlike many women, am not big on "Days" . After my mom died almost 8 years ago, Mother's Day lost it's meaning. I'm not big on birthdays, anniversaries, Valentines. I see them as important but it's that I just hate the big deal that is made over them. Robert, on the other hand, loves making a big deal out of things. Oy Vay! (I LOVE CHRISTMAS though!) I just can't handle events. I just want to hang out and enjoy the day. I pretty much loathe planning parties etc...so I don't. My poor daughter; what is she going to do when she gets married? Maybe she will be my polar opposite and love planning stuff. See, I am totally spontaneous. I will call people in the afternoon and say, "Why don't you come over, bring the kids, and we will grill out and watch a movie." I think being an event planner might be the most frightening job I could ever think of doing.)
From the wife who is more like a husband when it comes to stuff like this....
