Barely any time has passed since Mona had to keep up with her dad’s bizarre hobbies, and now she feels like something’s wrong with her mom. One totally ordinary Tuesday, Mom decides that every upcoming holiday should be celebrated properly from that point forward, no matter whether it’s a birthday, summer solstice, first day of school, Valentine’s Day, or Independence Day. Then, there’s Do-Nothing Day, Bird-Drawing Day, Laughing Day, Ice-Cream Day, and Music Day. It turns out there’s a reason to celebrate each and every day. Still, Mona’s mom decides that Mother’s Day should be marked first of all, and waits excitedly for the occasion. It seems, however, like all the planning will fall on Dad and Mona’s shoulders.
