Momma Songs

Every year for Mother's Day I put together a CD for the mother of my treasures (aka the kids) called Momma Songs. These usually contain songs related to being a mom (serious and silly, rockin' and meaningful) and usually some love songs that reflect my love, ongoing attraction and gratitude for my wife and friend. This year I put together two: One just with mother-related songs and one with love-related songs. I thought I'd share the playlists with you in case you'd like to share a song or two with the woman in your life who makes it all alright. Give mom's due props!
