First off, a very Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers out there! Having now experienced what mothers go through before, during and after birth, I’d argue that there’s no good reason why we shouldn’t be celebrating mothers 365 days a year (and 366 every four). That said, I’d probably go broke buying flowers, and breakfast in bed would no doubt lose its novelty.
This week’s strip takes us back to the first few weeks of Finley’s life, which pretty much looked like this day in and day out. What impressed me most was Laura’s resilience in the face of exhaustion and recovery from labour. I don’t recall ever hearing her complain and she always made Finley feel as if he was the most important person in her life, regardless of the time of day (or night). I guess that’s what being a mom is all about!
