Every Day is Kid's Day

Bocce
Photo by myself in Bryant Park, at 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue.

There are a couple areas for bocce games at this park. This gentleman was among a few sharing a serious game the other day.

TGIF, everyone. By the way, it's Mother's Day this weekend.

We'll be in Lawn Guyland to see Mark's mom. Plans are vague. Hopefully we'll have nice enough weather to drive near the water and have a nice lunch.

And I'll call my Mom in California. It'll be nice to chat with her.

When I was little I asked my Dad why there wasn't a 'Kid's Day', since there was a Mother's and Father's Day. Of course he told me that 'Every day is Kid's Day'.

I was disappointed by his response, but I now share his thinking. Oh to be a kid. They can run around, have fun and generally not worry too much.

I hope everyone is either spending time with his or her mom or is wishing her well. And if you can't be together, well, I hope you're thinking of her.

I liked you father's answer, "Every day is kid's day."

I also liked the black and white photo of this man and his ball game.

For us, Mother's Day is a nice excuse to go out, have a nice lunch and catch up. Like many Moms, she never treats herself, so it's one time that she lets my sister and me spoil her!

Thanks Mr Lincoln
Happy Mom's day to Mrs. Lincoln!

Hi Spandrel
Have a wonderful day with your mum

Thanks Gudl
It's a great park, yes. I love how each park has its own personality. That one feels European for some reason.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Thanks Mab!

As a parent I can confirm that everyday is kids day! I bought cards yesterday for all the moms in my life and I mailed 'em out today. I know they'll be late, but hey, better late than never.

le célèbre clan de la boule new-yorkaise ;o). En France c'est le 25 mai la fête des mères, c'est bizarre qu'il y est des dates différentes, comme ci Noël n'était pas a la même date dans le monde entier

the famous clan "the boule of New York" ;o). In France on May 25 is the feast of mothers, it is bizarre that there is different dates, like this Christmas was not the same date in the world

Aurora asked me that before and I told her the same thing. Have a great weekend!

Kitty said...

Hi Adam
I agree, it's the thought that counts. I haven't sent a card in eons!

Thanks Kitty!

Hi Olivier
I'm glad France has a Mother's Day. There should be an international day, I agree.

Hi Tammy
I'd love to know how Aurora responded.

We used to celebrate Children's Day as I was growing up in Hungary, if I remember correctly, it was the last Sunday of May. The first Sunday of May was Mother's Day. We had no Father's Day though.

I think Children's Day was international, I'm not sure if there is an official day for it in the US though.

I think as a child I would have really appreciated your father's opinion on the matter :-)
