Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!  I hope your day is filled with love and joy.

Real Mothers

Real Mothers don't eat quiche.  They don't have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens - and happy kids.

Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of carpets.

Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.

Real Mothers sometime ask 'Why me?'  They get their answer when a little voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade...

It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother.

The Images of Mother

4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!

8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!

12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.

14 YEARS OF AGE - Mom doesn't know anything.

16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's so old-fashioned.

18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!

25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, Mom might know a little bit about it!

35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.....

45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

I believe my oven qualifies me as a "real mother"! Happy Mother's Day to you!
I'm having a give-away if you'd like to stop by.

Still on Cloud 9...exhausted, emotional, but oh so happy!. I'm sure you know the feeling...
