Happy Mother’s Day

My wife, Abby, does the cooking in our family, so on Mother’s Day, as a special treat, I usually make her breakfast in bed.  We also feature this tradition regularly in Hi and Lois.

Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are important holidays and it would be an oversight not to celebrate these occasions in a family strip like Hi and Lois.  But it does present a challenge to come up with fresh ideas ever year.  There are only so many variations on the breakfast-in-bed scenario.
