The "Most Powerful Moms" list is out, and I don't see your mom's name or your wife's name on the list.  But they deserve it!  Nobody runs a tighter ship, and everyone under your roof listens to the Mom of the house and follows her direction.  I know how this works.  Mom is boss.

The list includes celebrity names like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and the writer of The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins.  These gals are inspiration for the rest of us moms. They work long hours, win awards and have success, and keep the kids fed and happy. I wonder if they have help from a nanny or two?!  If so, good for them.  I can't think of a better way to spend that celebrity money.

Popular gifts for mom on Mother's Day include a Manicure/Pedicure, jewelry, flowers, brunch, lunch, dinner, (anything so Mom doesn't have to cook!), a donation in her name, and even landscaping for the front yard.  Who knew.

How about some alone time on the couch when no one wants a thing from Mom? Solitary confinement for a half day would be great.  Happy Mother's Day!
