Pete and I would like to wish all of our mommy readers a lovely, wonderful, relaxing Mother's Day! We'd like to specifically thank our amazing mothers for raising us to be independent, hardworking and without a doubt, wacky.
Let's take a look at these awesome ladies, shall we? And embarrass some people while we're at it.
