And for Mothers' Day, maybe Ants' Aunts...

The children presented me with a bouquet of purple flowers for my birthday. I asked the oldest if he knew the name of the flower, and he gleefully informed me they were "Spiders' Mommies!"

(A quick Google informed me they are Spider Mums.)

Much like the children, they are

1. Full of unrestrained enthusiasm or joy.
2. Lavish; extravagant.
3. Extreme in degree, size, or extent.
4. Growing, producing, or produced abundantly; plentiful.
