“A mother is a person who seeing there only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie!” ~ Tennava Jordon
Does anyone remember watching “Leave it Beaver” – Or am I dating myself? I posted this picture of June Cleaver on my face book page today – being that it is Mother’s Day 2013. June Cleaver is the ICONIC Mother – god bless her! My daughter is sitting on the couch next to me and I kinda mumble to her “hey don’t get that playdough on the couch!” – (ok maybe I kinda of barked it). I don’t think June would have Toy Story 2 on the TV playing with her laptop on her knee feeling like she should “blog” about Mother’s Day??? No not my June Clever she wouldn’t have the TV on – nor would she allow the kiddlets to have playdough on the couch – she would probably be baking a cake with the kids or prepare a loving lunch for the kiddlets. MMM… it is almost noon I am thinking chicken nuggets after the movie is over…. OK I guess I will not win the “Mother of the Year Award!” –
Well since my Title of the Blog is “Labels for Motherhood”…. What crazy weather we have had this past week – My daughter has been wearing some of her new summer clothes this week with the temperature at 27 some we have had for most of the week. I quickly stuck a label on my daughters new hat as she was rushing out to catch the morning bus. (It makes me think she will remember to bring it home with her). Well Maybe I shouldn’t have put those winter coats away just yet – (It was just hailing and it is a chilly 6 out today) – but the sun is shining.
So I just glanced over and guess what play dough all over the floor – so what does a mother do – start sweeping – my daughter said “Hey Mom – give me that broom it is Mother’s Day – Kids are supposed to help their Mom on Mother’s Day!”
So I better go – get that play dough cleaned up and get those chicken nuggets going – mmmmm… maybe it is a grilled cheese kinda day! We have decided to bake some “Betty Crocker Muffins with a “Duncan Hines Frosting” ( I think June would approve. Thank you Meg & Noah for letting Mom sleep in today and for the lovely home made gifts you made me – they are my treasures. Mumma loves the flowers too. (thanks Dad).
Happy Mother’s Day everyone – Enjoy your day!
