Celebrating Mother's Day and eating out

First, I want to tell you Happy Mother’s Day to all Mom’s, though I’m way late to wish. Actually, yesterday when I tried to transfer the photos from my phone, for some unknown reason I couldn’t transfer them. So, I couldn’t upload yesterday. 

We all know that Mother’s Day was first started by Anna Jarvis 1908, and made an official US holiday in 1914. I grew up in India,so, I was not familiar with Mother’s Day when I was little. Later , after I grew up and started my job, at that time communications became much more easier. On the top of that , globalization, and Internet made many things more easier than ever before. Then we all came to know about Mother’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and other US holidays. Currently, in the era of marketing all kind of celebrations , and festivals become an extravaganza. Anyway, some people argue that there is no need of Mother’s Day, everyday is mother’s day. 

However, that is not real. Moreover, what is the problem in making one day special for her?




It takes nine months to become a mother, but, motherhood is a lifelong journey. I’m now 40 years, still my mother thinks about me. So, all the mothers deserve a special day for her.
Today, father and son decided a little treat for me. In the morning my little one handed my one card. It was the best gift. Then ,later in the morning he sold a “newspaper”, called Mom’s Chronicle to his father by 1 cent.  He wrote many good words about me. He wrote that, I’m very good at mathematics. *smile* Then ,we went to a Chinese restaurant for lunch. Though the restaurant is very near to our house, we have never been there before. The food was really good, we enjoyed the lunch a lot. I ordered for wan ton soup, and garlic chicken. Mr. Man ate lunch combo, and kiddo went for noodles. 

I chose to eat garlic chicken


Kiddo's favorite noodles



HE chose lunch combo


Then we decided to go to Barns and Nobles, as kiddo wanted a word search book for a long timer. The Old Navy was just beside Barns and Nobles, So, I decided to take peek there. While I was going through the summer dresses kiddo made a sweet rose from origami paper, kept inside the store. That was a nice gift from him. They really made the day special for me.

What a wonderful post, Krishna. It is always so much fun to see how others celebrate each holiday. Those little handmade things from kids are the best presents of all, aren't they?
I love that book store and your food looks very, very good.
I am going to try to get your blog on my sidebar again. For some reason it wouldn't post through before. I read from my sidebar so if I am not here it is because I didn't know you had a post up. Hope you have a wonderful week-xo Diana
