mother's day (+?) 

I love my mom. We have a great relationship. I kinda hate mother's day though. I don't like the trappings of it, but that's not really why I hate it.

Mother's day is the 2nd Sunday in May. My mom's birthday is May 12th. This year is a rare year where they're pretty separate, but in a normal year, the existence of mom's day makes it hard to celebrate how wonderful and unique and special my mom is, because it just gets lost in the 'celebration' of 'mothers'.
