* To be able to eat a whole candy bar (alone) and drink a soda without any "floaties" (ie, backwash).
* To have her 14 year-old daughter answer a question without rolling her eyes in that "Why is this person my mother?" way.
* Five pounds of chocolate that won't add twenty pounds to her figure.
* A shower without a child peeking through the curtain with a "Hi Ya Mom!" just as she puts a razor to her ankle.
* A full time cleaning person who looks like Brad Pitt.
* For her teenager to announce, "Hey, Mom! I got a full scholarship and a job all in the same day!"
* A grocery store that doesn't have candy/gum/cheap toys displayed at the checkout line.
* To have a family meal without a discussion about bodily secretions.
* To be able to step on a plane with their toddlers and NOT have someone moan, "Oh no! Why me?!?"
* To occasionally get to sleep late on the weekend. I mean is this too much to ask?
* To actually carry on a normal phone conversation with her toddler in the SAME room.
* To actually be able to finish a HOT cup of coffee while her kids are present. An impossible feat!
* To take a hot bath without her toddler suddenly screaming, "Mommy, I have to go potty!" as soon as she hits the water.
I'm hoping my Mom has a great Mother's Day. I hope Dad remembers to give her a break and take her for a walk to enjoy the spring weather before she does dishes Sunday. heh
Wishing all you Mom's a wonderful Mother's Day!
