Happy Mother’s Day

I think that most of my readers are probably moms. And to you I’d like to say thank you. We’re all busy. I know that. And the fact that you take a minute or two (or or seven because my posts are so damn long) out of your day to read the randomness that comes out of my head means more to me than you could ever know.

(And to you non-moms – I know you’re busy too. Thank you as well!)

As a token of my appreciation I’d like to give you a Mother’s Day gift. (Yes, even you non-moms. Jeez, for not being mothers you sure are naggy!)

What is this gift you ask? Flowers? An iPad? A spa day? A gift card to Trader Joe’s? Nope, sorry. As much as I’d love to give you all those things it’s not quite what my pocketbook will allow. So instead I’ve been trolling the internet (or okay, mostly Pinterest) to find things that will make you mothers (and non-mothers) laugh.

As my Mother’s Day gift to you, I’d like to present you with the gift of laughter…


So heartwarming


To moms of toddlers (I hope)…

I might or might not have done this before


Why it’s important to like your kids’ friends’ parents…

Uh, you mean playdates were supposed to be for the kids? Oops!


You know something is broken when this happens…

so true… so true..


For moms who feel like they’re talking to walls (who are probably better listeners)…

What did you say?


And finally, as the mother of a teenage daughter who just spent her spring break trying to break the Guinness Book of World Records for continuous watching of YouTube videos on her iPod, I find this one especially funny…

Go play outside!


And I have saved the very best for last. Please do yourself a favor and watch this hilarious video from MommyTonk. I promise it will make you laugh out loud. (It’s so funny you might be the one thanking me!)

To all of you mothers, from the bottom of my heart, I would love to wish you love, laughter, a brunch with bottomless Bloody Marys, and a very Happy Mother’s Day!

  1. HMD Char! Hope your novel finds a home as you continue to write your fun, informational (I bought a Spanx bra because of you) and poignant musings.

  2. You, bottomless bloody marys, and MommyTonk = perfection.

    Happy Mother’s Day to you, my wonderful friend.
