Thanks for tackling this - I am interested in how people answer these questions. They were harder for me than I thought they would be.

A good friend with a one year old was surprised how much the marking of mother's day meant to her. I think that especially that first year it is nice to have a "hey, I did this hard thing and survived" celebration, and since her kid was born 3 weeks before mother's day last year, this year really is a landmark. It has me thinking about the fact that parenting does not come with the usual rewards/awards we are used to as women with fulfilling jobs. There is no master's degree, no raise, no accolade for the daily work of parenting.
