Mother’s Day is rolling around again and has me thinking about all the different types of mother-child relationships. I’m a daughter, an only child. I’m a Mom to one daughter, a female cat and female dog. My husband is surrounded by women, just the way he likes it. Ha, that is probably why he is looking forward to his men’s only golf trip! What got me thinking about all my “mom” relationships?

Seeing an article about how animals do not have emotion or memories. What? There were a few choice words other than “what?” that escaped my lips. Are they crazy is probably the least “unkind” of all the ones I was thinking. If pets have no emotion, why does our dog cry whenever my husband leaves for work? She then comes to find me wherever I am. She sits in my office along with my cat most of the day. If I go to a different room, they follow me.

Even though Lucy, our dog, loves me, she adores my husband. I am definitely second fiddle. However, when it comes to Stella, our cat, I am her person. She sleeps on me, she sits on my lap. She loves to stand on my desk right in front of my computer; so that I can do nothing but pet her. Throw my daughter into the mix and all three get totally jealous of each other. What another emotion from my animals?

So none of this really has anything to do with Peach Muffins other than they are fabulous for Mother’s Day and I love them. These peach muffins are a recreation of a local coffee shop muffin which is probably 400 calories for one peach muffin. I just love the flavor the granola gives to it. It doesn’t give it crunch, but “wow” flavor. I thought these were gone forever from my life. It has taken me many, many, many attempts to lighten the peach muffins to one I love as much as the original. Sometimes this stuff is hard to do!

What are you planning for Mother’s Day? Who will you celebrate it with? Just wondering, how many of you read the post or just come for the recipe? Either way is fine. I would love to get to know what you all like and dislike better. Any feedback? I don’t mind positive criticism either.

    Oh yes!! Peach anything is good. Well, almost anything. I am one of few that doesn't like ream cheese, sour cream, or sweetened condensed milk. Ha!! I just made a Peach Apricot Oat Bar this week from a bloggers new cookbook. It is called The Sweet Side of Ancient Grains. Her blog is Texaserin. I have tried several of her recipes and they have been great. I love reading about family life and funny stories.
