New on "Mothers with Attitude"

April Cain shares a sweet little springtime story of letting go of your gardening plans and just enjoying the flowers in the latest installment of her "Thinking It Over" column. Like April's boys, my son likes to pick flowers and present them to me, although in his case it's usually dandelions plucked from our overgrown lawn that wilt almost immediately upon presentation. Doesn't matter, though, 'cause he insists that I wear the poor things and carry them around and put them in water and cherish them until they completely biodegrade. As we all know, it's the wonderful loving childish thought that counts, and as long as there's enough of that there will always be plenty of dandelions. This is why I never plant a garden.
