How my kids feel about me:

  1. Good morning, dear Janie!

    I appreciated these snarky twists on Mother's Day. In that first set of four at the top, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reminded me of my parents who were teenagers during The Great Depression. Money was tight and families needed to stretch every dollar to the limit. Children had the choice of eating the meals their mothers served or go hungry.

    I wish you a very happy Mother's Day, dear friend Janie!

  2. What a lovely collection. Please add one from my mother: Don't taste it, just eat it. And, a happy mother's day to you.

  9. Happy mother's day! I hope you're enjoying it with your children. My kids are of the 4 legged variety. We're celebrating with meat. Lots of meat. It's not a bad way to celebrate regardless of species.

  10. Youngest and I went to breakfast this morning, which was nice since most the time he wants nothing to do with me, and shortly after we were seated two cops sat behind us. I leaned over and said "They've come for you." and he said, "I always knew you were the one who'd be finally getting rid of me."

    Ten minutes later his school safety officer (the cop at the front door of his school) came in with his family and sat to our left.

    Realizing he was now surrounded, he finished his gluten free chocolate chip piggy pancake without another word. :)

  15. Ah crap, I missed the opportunity to wish you a Happy Mother's Day. I feel like a real mother f'er. Here's hoping retroactively that you had a great Mother's Day.
