Happy Mother's Day. Molly Jones was quite the mother, and I remember singing this song with my mom in the '60s. Last night I sang it with my son. Ob La Di, Ob La Da, life goes on!

And for Mother's Day none of us have to watch Meet the Press. Don't say the universe never gave you anything.

Here's what's up on the Sunday Shows....

ABC's "This Week" — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel; Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.; roundtable with Donna Brazile, Bill Kristol, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Michael Smerconish.

NBC's "Meet the Press" — Pre-empted by coverage of Premier League soccer.

CBS' "Face the Nation" — Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich.; Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.; former Defense Secretary Robert Gates. Roundtable with David Ignatius (WaPo), Margaret Brennan (CBS News), and Michael Crowley (Time).

CNN's "State of the Union" — Reps. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.; former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa. (Rarely do I feel sorry for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, but this week that there's some really crazy sandwich bread for which she is asked to play the sane filling.)

"Fox News Sunday" — Reps. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Xavier Becerra, D-Calif. Former Nigerian Ambassador John Campbell; and roundtable with Brit Hume, George Will, Amy Walter and Juan Williams.

Let us know in comments what's catching your eyes and ears this morning....
