The role of a mom is never boring. In fact, I'm always putting on a different hat to suit the occasion. I'm a pharmacist for my daughter, nutritionist for my cross-country running son, research librarian for my youngest, and it all happens at once!

When you stop and take a look at the many hats we wear, they are quite a gift. Instead of complaining about all the expectations and all the hats people expect moms to wear, maybe we just need to build a bigger hatrack and be thankful for all the hats that do fit on our heads.Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, grandmothers, aunts, neighbors and friends who gracefully and skillfully switch hats at a moment's notice.
