This upcoming Sunday is Mother's Day in the United States, and I'm reminded of a little story from several years ago.
One day, we asked a colleague how he and his new child were planning to celebrate Mother's Day.
"Yup, I'm all over that. I mailed a gift to my mother earlier this week, and I'll call her on Sunday."
— Um, aren't you forgetting somebody?
"I'm not sure what you're talking about."
— What about your wife Betty?
"I should do something for Betty's mother?"
Let this be a cautionary tale for new fathers.
