For the Mom's....
I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up
something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth.
I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that. "Why?"
my daughter asked. "Because it's been on the ground, you don't know where it's been,
it's dirty and probably has germs" I replied. At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Mommy, how do you know all this stuff? You are so
I was thinking quickly. "All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy
Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy."
We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently
pondering this new information.
"OH...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test you have
to be the daddy."
"Exactly" I replied back with a big smile on my face.
When you're finished laughing, send this to a Mom.
Here's to all of you SR members who don't get days off. Who don't get lunch breaks or coffee breaks or smoke breaks (whatever suits you). Who don't get to go in late or get out early. Who don't get sick days and paid vacations. To those of you on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Much love to you!
Love The Panda Mama
Happy Mother's Day to All You Moms. I thought I'd share the poem my older son wrote for me with all of you (the younger wrote one, too, but it has mostly personal and family references, while this one is more general)
This paradox does Mother's Day yet hold:
One day a year could never honor you,
O, mother dear and worthy model role,
For all the simple caring things you do.
Who else insists that Dave and Jon wash their hands?
How could the Spurs win without your cheers?
Who else could meet all Mrs. Stein's* demands? *(my boss)
Or stick by us through laughter, joy, and tears?
What woman, gift from God, could do so much
To fill her family's every basic need?
Who else could care like you for all of us:
To wash, to sew, to drive, to clean, to feed?
Yes, never was a family greater blessed
Than us, who have you with us, mother best.
aww that's so sweet shelden... :)
