Happy Mother's Day

to all the moms and moms-to-be out there!

I talked to my mom on Thursday when my gift arrived. She had requested either a Swiss Army knife (because her old one was confiscated by TSA the last time she flew) or motorcycle boots. Next, she'll be requesting a Hell's Angels' membership and I'll have to watch my mouth around her or she'll likely cut me. Anyway, I got her the Swiss Army knife, on the condition that she not try to board a plane with it (I don't need to spend the next 10 years of my life trying to spring her from Gitmo), and she seemed very pleased with her gift.

It would seem way more normal if my mom requested things like flowers and chocolates, or better yet, did the classic mom "oh, you don't need to get me anything" non-request. However, I may not have turned out to have so much coolishness if my mother had been normal, so thank god for that!

Just remember, we are all like our mothers in one way or another. I can see some similarities popping up in you. That's right, it definitely adds to your coolishness. Happy Mother's Day! Scooter better have made you a cup of coffee this morning.

Your Mom sounds so much like mine. Of course she would never need anything particularly "momish."


***me and my unused uterus are still waiting for our Garmin for Mothers Day :-)**

LMAO from the picture I've seen of you Mom, she totally doesn't look like a lady who would want a Swiss Army knife.

Wow! That's an odd request. I am glad that your mom liked her gift.

I thought my mom was the only one that would ask for a Swiss Army knife. My mom fell victim to the same situation about two years ago and for the following Christmas she was asking for a little Swiss Army knife for her purse.

I guess it's a need you develop once you have children.
