10 Things to say to Mom…

Posted in When it RAINs with tags , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2011 by Mj Rains

Thanks for all the orthodontia.

The card is in the mail. Sorry it’s late, and yes, I’m still a procrastinator in spite of everything you did to help with that.

The clothes you wore in the eighties – where are they? And don’t be hurt when I call them vintage.

Sure, I cried every morning at day care, but I’m so proud of your career.

The crazy rules I fought at age 16? Thanks for sticking by them.

…Oh, and a general apology for that whole year. OK, decade.

My sex life is satisfying and safe, you don’t need details.

I’m moving back in!  Ha- ha, just kidding.

It’s all your fault that I just spent $100 on organizing bins at The Container Store.

And hey, Mom, how’s your crazy week going?

I would also like to add my own ten:

Mom, how do you sew that perfectly straight line in my chair covers?

Why is Dad going to the casino again?

No, I’m not cutting my hair short and perming it, okay?

Thanks for being there every day when the baby was born. I don’t think I would have survived.

Is that wallet an endless supply of  money for the kids each week?

What kind of gum do you have with you? (At first I typed by accident “gun”….now that’s a thought…)

We’re getting a puppy and you’ll have to baby sit it…what do you mean “no way” ?

When we have the Memorial Day picnic at your house I promise I won’t get too drunk to help you clean up.

Mom, I always love you…even if I don’t say it a lot.

I hope you have a great, care-free day…And hope you win at the casino!

Happy Mother’s Day to all!
