Everyone knows that every day is Mother's Day, but as we celebrate May 9 which would have also been my oldest and late brother's birthday I made special plans involving both my MoM, Margarita, and Big Brother Tony.

Just in time for Mothers Day, a 25-year-old West African mom from Mali has given birth to nine babies. A NONUPLET BUNDLE.

Halima Cisse delivered the five girls and four boys on Tuesday at a hospital in Morocco, according to Malian health officials.

The Malian government decided to fly the woman to the north African state so that she could receive better healthcare there. 

We wish her much patience but peace and quiet may not be in store for the new mother of nine babies that roar and more.
