The Perfect Mother’s Day


A perfect Mother’s Day would be a balmy 70-degrees with a light breeze and partial clouds. My husband, Dean, would get up with our boys at 6:00 a.m. so that I could sleep late. When I finally made it to the kitchen for breakfast, I would find a nice breakfast of Eggs Benedict and scones.

How do you get your get kids to get along? Please share with us in the comments below.
