Had enough, yet, of the Mother’s Day marketing? Just a few more days, ladies, and then we can look forward to the distractions caused the barrage of email marketing associated with May 18 — International Museum Day (I kid you not!).
So we have a winner in a very close contest for the Mother’s Day/Infertiles spoof (belated because my guy was out of town).
Annacyclopedia hooked Alex with waffles — influenced, no doubt, by his morning coffee.
At the best brunch joints in town: “Free brunch for all infertiles, past and present. Because nothing says I love you like all-you-can-eat waffles.”
(Thanks to all of our participants and congrats, Annacyclopedia! Please email the address where I can send you the More magazine subscription.)
So I’ve been accumulating quite a few interesting responses to a query I submitted last week to HARO (Help a Reporter Out). I’ll have a longer post for this Sunday. In the meantime, I welcome your answers to this same query:
As marketers rev up their Mother’s Day campaigns, a contingent of women get the cold shoulder or are made to feel like second class citizens (e.g. women who wanted children but couldn’t have them or single women/aunts, etc.). Would like to hear from non-moms. How do you cope/manage through the mom-palooza and mother deification? Do you indulge yourself? Head for hills? Grit your teeth?
(Finally, a happy anniversary to my parents! 48 years of wedded bliss. Seriously these two are like teenagers with their first puppy love, still!)
