Personal Finance Week in Review for May 12, 2013 – Happy Mother’s Day

by Sean Bryant on May 12, 2013

Cubs FanHappy Mother’s Day to all of the Moms.  Today is truly a special day, because we get to celebrate the ones who have made life possible.  I am so grateful for everything that my Mom has done for me.  She is a remarkable person and has helped me become the man I am today.  This year is also very special for me because it is the first year that I get to celebrate my wife being a Mom.  She has done such an amazing job with our six month old daughter Colette.  From trying to get her to bed at night to late night feedings, she has really been a rock star.  Parenthood is by no means easy, but it is the greatest thing in the world.

Now let’s talk about a few of my favorite personal finance articles from the past week.

    • Thanks. My wife actually found a picture of her wearing a hat the same way as a kid. She used some app to paste them side by side in an image. It turn out being a really good mother/daughter photo.

  • Thanks for the shout out and I couldn’t agree more with what you say regarding mothers. I am constantly in awe of how well my wife copes with all the challenges having a new born baby brings.
