Mothers Day!

On behalf of the whole staff at Tribeca Pediatrics, I would like to wish all our mothers a happy Mother’s Day.

Just for fun, I was imagining what I would think of Mother’s Day, if I actually was one. Here is what I came up with, from the perspective of my “inner-mom…”

Breakfast in bed is messy, and who’s cleaning up?

Hey, can we have sex like that every time?

What’s next, Father’s Day?
