Whenever I'm having a bad couple of days, my mom sends me a grab-life-by-the-you-know-what card. Apparently, a mother's job doesn't end after an ungrateful son graduates, moves halfway across the country and doesn't call enough.
Suffice it to say, we owe our moms a lot. So Celebrate Mama today starting at 11 a.m. in Boulders 29th Street Retail District. The free, open-air, expo-style event puts mothers in touch with a variety of "mama-friendly" services providing things like on-site child care and supports moms who own their own small businesses. Activities include a clown, a musician and healthy snacks for the kids, along with free massages provided by Massage Envy, $3,000 worth of raffle prizes, Mother's Day shopping and a charity bin that benefits the Safe House Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence.
