Here's what Momma wants for Mother's Day: comic books, cakes, and frappuccinos. All the rest is just icing on the aforementioned cake. Sure, there are other things that will be greatly appreciated. Ice show with world champions? Don't mind if I do! A few hours in the dark with classic black-and-white comedians? Count me in, Ollie! And yes, I would be delighted to accompany you to brunch. Is there bacon at said brunch? More's the better.
Of course, every mom is different. One size does not fit all, which is why frappuccinos come in grande, venti, and that other size. Did I mention I'm a mom? I totally deserve this.
There are some other things going on ths weekend: the makeover reveal of Los Cerritos Center (with makeovers for moms), a breakfast with gibbons (see how well they treat their mamas), celebrations of books and literacy at CAAM and in Grand Park (make your mama proud; read a book!), and a bunch of clever craft activities that can double as gifts for Mom (aw, isn't that thoughtful!). There are even freebies for Mom, because, really, where would you be without her?
Call your mom; send her some flowers, and keep reading for some of our most maternal picks for this weekend.
