As a new mom, I am starting to really understand the importance of Mother's Day. You'll never really understand until you become a parent yourself. From the very first few weeks of pregnancy and even through adulthood, you worry about your child, give up for your child and even feel physical pain for your child. It's simply a time to give back and say "thank you" for those 18 hours of labor, 18 years of no sleep, 18 diaper changes a day and $18,000 a year you spent on various things to make me happy. You rock, mom!

I found a couple of fun things to do here in Evansville with your mom. And, yes... spend the extra dough - she's worth it!
