Hello folks! It is May, and this weekend is Mother’s Day, so time for maternal gratitude and a heavy burden for the U.S. Postal Service.  Today’s quiz honors some rock-and-rolling Moms.
While musician may have been their first job, these ladies are now Moms as well (in one case, very recently so and in another, the artist is sporting her first baby bump). Have fun with this week’s quiz and call your Mom on Sunday for those still fortunate to have her with you.
