Why does the Torah relate that Ya'akov returned home to his father, and not his mother (who was at least as instrumental as his father in sending him to Charan, and even moreso in saving him from Eisav?


Perhaps it is because Kivud Av comes before Kivud Em, for also his mother must honor her husband. (PF)


The Torah wrote "to his father" for this was fulfilled (but Rivka died before he returned home - PF).
