When Your Kids Act Bratty

I saw this card the other day in the window of a store and could not stop laughing. Why is it that people would like you better if your kids act bratty? Because it makes them feel better that you are not a superior parent? Or do people like being around bratty kids (not likely)

I am sure there is some clever little quipy response inside this card but I honestly don’t think anything that it would say anything funnier.

So the next time you see someone with a really bratty kid, consider this: Do you like them better?

Looking bad if you are 70

40 isn’t fatal.

50 isn’t fatal.

60 isn’t fatal.

70? Hmmm… This may be concerning.

Sons are from Mars, Daughters are from Venus: A Mother’s Day Story

mothers-day

Today I received the most beautiful early Mother’s Day card from Jana. The second year of college has brought with it an ease in remembering the little things that make a big difference. She has made sure birthday gifts and cards arrive in time without being reminded. She handles her own ‘stuff’ with ease and little complaint. And this mother’s day the gift of her sending cards to not only me, but both her grandmothers, is the best one I could receive.

I texted her to thank her and tell her that she made me cry. She said she knew she would and then told me she had a funny story. Here it is:

Her friend went to buy a Mother’s day card and a girl who was in the store told her all the good ones were gone. The two of them decided to work as a team, going through every card in the store to try and find one that did not suck. While they were diligently reading every last card on the rack, a boy walked in, picked up the first card he saw, didn’t read it and walked out.

And that is the difference between boys and girls.

Hey, you have to give him credit for actually buying the card.

On this Mother’s Day I would like to wish all the moms in my life a wonderful day filled with family, love, and nothing that you do not want to do. 

To my mom and my mother in law, I wish you the happiest day of all. I hope you both know how grateful we are to have reached this age and still have all four of our childrens’ grandparents. We are truly blessed.
