If my mom wasn’t my mom, I’d be convinced she spent her childhood as a character from an iconic, subtly bizarre kid’s book—like Meg from A Wrinkle in Time, though instead of zipping through space via tesseract, my mother was inventing complicated melodrama about the personal lives of the trees that lined her block.

We love our moms because we love America, the president reminded us today in a very special message:

The Best Advice My Mom Has Given Me: 'If I Die, I Die' The Best Advice My Mom Has Given Me: 'If I Die, I Die'

When faced with a task that is either unpleasant, tiresome, strenuous, or mentally taxing in any way, I repeat to myself a mantra of sorts. It’s a phrase that floats in the back of my head that has informed my general outlook, and one that, at first blush, is rather bleak: “If I die, I die.”

Happy Mother's Day to Mother  Happy Mother's Day to Mother 

Deep in our nation’s capital, Mike Pence and his mother/wife/partner in God’s warm light, Karen, are standing in front of a giant cross, hands reaching towards each other, a respectable 4 to 5 inches of space between their flesh. “Happy Mother’s Day, Mother,” Pence whispers.

On Mother’s Day, there’s nothing better than a heartfelt card to celebrate all the hard work our moms have done for us. And boy, there are a lot to choose from!

I Grieved For My Mother On the Set of Nancy Grace I Grieved For My Mother On the Set of Nancy Grace

I went to New York to interview for a job on HLN’s Nancy Grace in September of 2008, fewer than 48 hours after my mother’s funeral. When I tell people that, they always widen their eyes. I can tell what they want to ask me: “So your mom’s funeral wasn’t even the worst day of that week?”

Most moms are content to spend Mother’s Day being doted on by their well-meaning families: The sloppily-served eggs in bed, the unintelligible drawings, the poems with rhymes so tortured you can hear them scream.

This Mother's Day, I'm Learning To Get Free Of My Mom This Mother's Day, I'm Learning To Get Free Of My Mom

The last time my mother and I had an actual conversation was on Mother’s Day 2014, when she told me that I shouldn’t have bothered calling her. Switching between Russian and heavily accented English, she said it was insulting for me to wish her well on this holiday when I hadn’t done anything to make her a happy…

50 Things to Do With Your Mom That Are More Enjoyable Than Taking Her to See Mother's Day 50 Things to Do With Your Mom That Are More Enjoyable Than Taking Her to See Mother's Day

Mother’s Day, the unfathomably bad new ensemble comedy by Garry Marshall, ends with a blooper reel. It’s not a particularly good blooper reel, but there is one great moment—perhaps the only good moment of the entire film. In it, Julia Roberts is seen in character (complete with that hideous wig) staring out the window…

Area Wig Old Area Wig Old

Julia Roberts wears a wig in Mother’s Day, the latest in a string of avant-garde films from famed director Garry Marshall. But the unholy bob atop her head is not a new wig plucked from a discount hair emporium shortly before filming. It is an old wig. In fact, it is a wig Roberts herself has worn before.
