No, I am not confused about the date. March 21st, in addition to being the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere, is also Mother’s Day in most of the Arab world. So, what does that mean for me? You guessed correctly, I let my family celebrate twice!
We were back at school today after our two ‘Sand Days’. (See here and here for more.) Now it is the weekend and I am looking forward to a Wednesday night with my little one. Our ritual is to play a bit, have dinner, get ready for bed early, and watch a ‘movie’ (either an act of Swan Lake, Blue’s Clues, or Elmo’s World) while eating popcorn, snuggled on the couch.
Gotta go snuggle! It’s Mother’s Day, after all.
