Your Mom

Your mom goes to college. Hee-hee. (Name that movie.)

Your mom eats yogurt.

Your mom takes the trash out.

Your mom cleans dog vomit.

Your mom washes dishes.

Your mom buys clothes.

Your mom sweeps.

Your mom goes to conferences.

Your mom shaves.

Your mom’s funny.

Your mom cleans the toilet.

Your mom’s ticked.

Your mom eats waffles.

Your mom does yoga.

I figured out a way to make a list of everything I do for my children so they will appreciate me! See, the key is to not do it in a nagging format. Or whining. You think it’s bad when they whine? I know it’s not fair but kids usually have a zero tolerance program for parental whining. Yeah, so here’s what you do: Anytime you ask them to do something and they complain, do a “Your mom” joke with what they said (after you tell them to do what you said and I mean it, mister).

A) It’s funny. B) You get to brag on your own work. Get it? Because it’s you that you’re talking about! Hahaha!

The only problem is when they figure it out. Durn kids are too smart these days. They catch on quick, and then they sometimes roll their eyes and say…”You know you’re joking about yourself, right Mom?” If this happens, just smile and nod and say, “Your mom’s a joker.”

You won’t survive parenting if you can”t laugh sometimes. Believe me.

OH, and your mom laughs.

  1. Hi Katie, I’m back online after losing my dad. It’s been 7 months since his passing and I think I’m ready to start posting again. There’s a lot to write about. Wondering how your mom is doing. Hope all is well.

    • Hi Christy! I’m so glad to hear from you. I’ve wondered how you were doing. Mom’s still hanging in there…getting weekly transfusions. She’s meeting with the hospice doctor tomorrow to go over what will happen when she stops getting transfusions. We are praying for her to be able to make the right decision for her. Thanks for asking. I look forward to your writing. Blessings.
