Happy Mother's Day to all of you awesome mothers, grandmothers, aunts, God mothers, step moms, foster moms, and all of you other ladies out there who take an active role in helping to shape the future of our kids. Moms have a super tough job to do (you don't realize this until your own kids are making you crazy and then it hits you...yes this is what my mom had to go through with me. eekkk) so setting aside just one day to spoil mom doesn't seem like enough but, at least for today, here's hoping you indulge your mom like crazy today.
Financial lesson: this is one area where I don't mind splurging. My mom died young so I never got to fully appreciate everything she did for her kids and I didn't get to spoil her on her special day like I wish I could do now.
