It’s Mothers Day here on Sunday. However as Alison chose to observe UK Mothers Day back in March, I’m abstaining. There will be no breaksfast in bed from me this Sunday. She’s already like the Queen (for example, she never carries any money), but just doesn’t need to celebrate the same event twice.
However, and by way of an olive-branch (probably to be snapped painfully over my head) I do offer this quite extraordinary video from TED.com, which I recommend to all parents (and come to that, non-parents) to watch and weep. The presenter (Sarah Kay) is a spoken word poet, and I challenge any parents to have dry eyes after the first few minutes, and not be thinking “that’s the parent I want to be”
