Mother’s Day, Newly Sprung Lilacs and Dog Vomit

purple lilacs, green background, mother's day

What, you might ask, does dog vomit have to do with Mother’s Day? Newly sprung lilacs–OK, that fits, flowers being a hallmark of the Mother’s Day holiday. But dog puke?

Just a memorable moment from my Mother’s Day in 2008, when my girls were quite young and one of the dogs apparently had an upset stomach.

I wrote about it in this article, which was published by Bay State Parent magazine back in the day. (Humorous side note: As I was adding the link to Bay State Parent, I saw that their home page today features a photos of lilacs!)

To all the mothers out there, I hope you appreciate the sentiment of the article, and that you have a great day!
