An Ode To Mr. Mom: Why Single Fathers Deserve Praise On Mother’s Day [Original] Mother’s Day may just be one of if not the most celebrated holidays known to American culture. (As it should!) I mean, really this day of thanks shouldn’t be restricted to just 24 hours, but how else would we show our appreciation with expensive restaurant food, cheesy Hallmark cards, rides on the Philadelphia Spirit or endless bouquets of flowers. We use this time to thank our Queens for being there for our first step, dance recital, championship basketball game, first heartbreak, and so on. We also owe our success for being both the mother and father in a generation where single-parent households are more common.
