What Moms Really Want for Mother's Day

* 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!

Nah, not Brad Pitt. Maybe Wentworth Miller? :)

* To have a day without worry over whether the kids are REALLY at the mall or the movies like they said they were.

* To have her husband come home from work, lay down his briefcase, and pick up a mop.

* To have her BFF greet her and say, "I have never seen you looking more slender and beautiful than you look today."

Ah DAZD, you have it mostly right but The Sarcasticynic nailed it! :O)

As an aside... thank you so much for your help on my blog of late, it is truly appreciated!

Oh yes please...

And to have all the domestic duties attended to, as if by magic, while I sleep...

I love these. My fav was the 14 year old daughter rolling her eyes only she's 16 at my house.

Have a great weekend.

Amen to this list! And my mother's day was no different than any other day. No card or present. No breakfast in bed. No nuthin'!
Bah humbug! I'm buying myself a nice gift this Friday. I don't know what it will be, but my husband knows it's coming!
