R egular readers of this blog may remember meeting my mom, Elaine (aka Nana-Banana). She's the kind of mom who genuinely does not want her kids to buy her anything for Mother's Day.
She always says, "I have everything I need, save your money" and she means it. It's a request we don't oblige.
Since she's a big book lover (like me, or rather I'm like her) I generally get her a Barnes and Noble gift card for Mom's Day so she can pick up favorite reads throughout the year on me.
