Get Ready For Mother's Day

Dear Kargas Boys,

Last year, we did not have a successful Mother's Day. No, even after I prepared a neat little list of what was required of the holiday, you failed me. FAILED ME. In case you forgot, I was nine months pregnant and planned a lovely weekend to Monterrey. We went to the aquarium, stayed at a hotel with a pool and took you to Chili's. It was a disaster. There was fighting, so much fighting. Instead of "I love you" I was told that I was hated. We ate crappy food and got up early. It was bad.

History will not repeat itself. Understand? This year you will abide by the following rules:

  • No fighting
  • No telling mommy you hate her, or that you wish she were dead.
  • No terrible hotel continental breakfast
  • No card with a single word: Pirate. I want a card with a whole paragraph about how much you love me.
  • You will give me flowers
  • We will have seafood for dinner. 
  • I will sleep in past 7am
  • Bonus for a massage                
How easy is that? JUST DO IT.


P.S. I love you!!


  1. Can't wait to hear how this year goes-

  2. Personally, I thought "pirate" was the perfect word for the occasion.

  3. I was just asked where I wanted to go eat for Mother's Day. I said, "I don't. I don't want to go anywhere in public with any of these kids." Is that so much to ask?
