My Perfect Mother's Day

Well since i'm using this post to describe my favorite Mother's Day I guess I have to include children, right? Well, my perfect Mother's Day would be one in which I could rest; just sort of have the day off. No cooking, no cleaning, yet everyone's content. Maybe take out. I'd go with Italian or Chinese. A nice family movie in the dark with popcorn and perhaps a nice cold soft drink. If it would be just perfect, well the temperature would be just right and the bed would be right in our living room, for this one night only because our bedrooms are all upstairs and it would be nice to not have to walk up all of the stairs after enjoying a movie with the family. Well I guess then that we would also need a bathroom located on our first floor as well, because that too is upstairs (sigh). Oh well, I guess no perfect Mother's Day for me. But as long as I have my family and know that they're all well, that's about as perfect as it gets.

I've written this blog post in response to a contest going on where bloggers have a chance to win an iPad. Check out their recommended iPhone apps for kids. This nifty site has suggestions based on age brackets from 0-12 and types ranging from creative to educational to just plain fun. You can also find more details on how you can win an iPad.

Get Your Free Episode of BBC Earth from iTunes. Offer Expires 4/26.

I really admire nature. From the way the sky is blue and grass is green to the way the whole chain of life works. It simply amazes me.

Watching nature shows is something that my family and I enjoy doing together. From my two year old up to my husband. It's just one of those things that we agree on when it comes watching something together as a family. I also like the fact that these types of shows are educational as well as entertaining.

I was glad to get the heads up and am pleased to let you know that from today, April 12 through April 26th in honor of Earth Day's 40th anniversary, you can download a free episode of BBC Earth from iTunes. Available in standard and high def, you can sync it with your iphone or ipod touch as well as watch it right from your computer. There are several other episodes available for purchase. If you don't already have iTunes, it's also free to download, so what are you waiting for?? Get your free episode of BBC Earth before it's too late!
