"The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there
was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good
one." - Jill Churchill
Hi there. It's Friday and I haven't posted "Wordplay" yet. I had a full week of Chelsea being here and a full week of appointments. I am just recovering. It was fantastic having Chels here. We had a ball. We went shopping for her little one. I found out yesterday she is positive she is having a boy!! CONGRATULATIONS, Chels!! She wants a boy. She won't have to take back all the blue clothes she received as gifts this past week, either. She went back with alot of stuff. She is really a beautiful pregnant lady. Much more confident and radiant than I was.
It is Mother's Day this Sunday. I wanted to wish every mom out there a Happy Mother's Day!!! I also wanted to use the subject of "mom" for "Wordplay" today. I wanted to ask everyone what advice or just general statements about life they had gotten from their mom's over the years. I wanted to see what 'mom-isms' we could come up with. Some of the things I remember my mom saying over the years are: "All my geese are swans!"; "It will get better before you're married." (although my Dad said this much more than my mom.); "I'm not a taxi service."; "Life's not fair."; "Don't sit too close to the TV/read in the dark. It will hurt your eyes."; and finally, "Go play outside. It is too beautiful to be inside." I'm sure my list could be alot longer, but this is a list to start us out. What about you? What was your mom famous for saying? What advice did she give you or what was she often saying? I will post the list I have gathered either on Mother's Day or early next week. Please put your contribution in the comments section or do an entry in your journal and come back and leave the URL to your entry so I can include you in my list! Thanks for your participation!! This will be fun!! And again, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there and to my Mama, too!! Love you, Mom!!!!
