Mother's Day - With a Twist
I’d post this tomorrow but I’ll be busy being worshipped while sitting on the throne. (Not the one in the bathroom.) Truthfully? One son is away, the other finally has a day off work and will probably sleep for most of it and the third one? Well, he did promise… We’ll see what they come up with.
And while tomorrow is the day to show mothers how much they’re appreciated and loved (or not…) I’m viewing it a little differently this year.
I’m going to pause and appreciate the fact I am a mother.
Sure, my kids have caused me a lot of grief over the years and I hold each of them personally responsible for my foul vocabulary (I didn’t swear before I had children), the grey hair (successfully hidden with a dye job) and the (few!) wrinkles – aka laugh/frown lines.
But all is forgiven. We’ve reached a mutually satisfying arrangement as to the above. The boys put a quarter in the jar each time I swear, pay for the dye jobs with their gambling profits and are saving for my future Botox treatments from their (somewhat) lucrative drug dealing.
I’ve got me some fine sons!
All kidding aside (and I am kidding about the gambling and drugs although the quarter in the jar thing might be worth starting), I take great delight in their company and love them dearly.
So, Curly, Larry and Moe – my thanks for making this Mother Happy!
And I wish all Mothers a Day of Happy.
P.S. My sisters and I are taking our mother out for lunch tomorrow – we still owe her…
(Perhaps I’ll be accused of poking fun at a sacred cow with this post but since I’m one of the cows, I figured it would be okay.)
