Mother's Day is always a special day for a mom, but the first Mother's Day is extra special.
Mother's Day is a big deal for new moms. Here's some sage advice. If your wife is pregnant with her first child, don't tell her she isn't technically a mom so this Mother's Day doesn't count. Seriously; you risk being in the dog house for years if you tell her that.

She asks me questions about my father's girlfriend and then if I say anything nice about the girlfriend, my mother gets all bummed out looking. I just can't win.
Well, my father is even worse. He calls my mom a blood-sucker and says that she's making him broke. Now, what am I supposed to do about that? I am not their lawyer. I am their kid, not their buddy.
