Happy Mother’s Day 2013 and Links

Today we tip our hats to Moms everywhere.

As Jim Gaffigan says in one of his hilarious standup routines: “Women are amazing. A woman can grow a baby inside their body. Then somehow a woman can deliver the baby through their body. And then by some miracle a woman can feed a baby with their body.”

Your mother did that for you.  And then she kissed your boo boos, got you to school on time, and supported you in every wacky endeavor you took on.

Even better if Mom showed you how to budget for a family, get the best value at the grocery store, and the value of time spent with family.

So thanks, Mom, and all Moms who are involved with their children’s lives.
