Bonne fête des mères!

Taking a break from typical cooking posts to announce something very important….

It’s MOTHER’S day!!!!!

Mother Dear really should get special tribute on this blog anyway; she keeps me going in the kitchen through support, help, company, suggestions, ideas, inspiration, shopping.  And cleaning.  Lots of cleaning, bless her heart.  I don’t think I would be attempting this diet without her help.  I definitely wouldn’t be enjoying it NEARLY as much.

I love mothers.  And specifically I really love MY mother.  I think we should celebrate mothers more often.

Go here and you’ll find the various dates when “Mother’s Day” is celebrated around the world.  How about we just have a special “We really appreciate our mom” celebration every time another country is celebrating.  Why not?  We’ve got several more “Mother’s Day’s” this month!  How fun!

Since I’ll be gone most of tomorrow, we decided to “celebrate” today instead… walking, shopping, sporcling, jotto-ing, partying, bonding over a glass of bedtime sewer water…  I really like being with my mommy.  If only she came travel size for going overseas.  This is a problem.

Sadly we didn’t get to go to our favorite park today like we wanted to.  Oh well.  There’s always next Mother’s Day!  It’s coming up on the 10th in just a couple days!!  😉  See, isn’t it so much better this way?  No having to wait a whole other year for it to come around again!

Dinner this evening was fun, spent at a Cinco de Mayo party with my church.  Over pickles and chicken, I was asking the pastor’s daughter what she was going to do for her mother for Mother’s Day.  I suggested she make a card.  And realized I hadn’t made one.  Eh…  and then I suggested she write her mom a poem.  And thought “I should do that!”  It’s been a while.  It may be nigh impossible to get them creative juices flowing again.  Hm.  Let’s see…


Progression of Mommy’s Intelligence 

From baby to adolescence grew her intelligence
Learning and studying brought adulthood’s good level sense
Then kiddos did come, of 3 was their sum
Back to “Jane sees spot run” returned the vocab of our mum

Upward they grew, those kiddos to grads of hers
The brain again free to prosper ‘mid philosophers
and math equations, hist’ry books, biology (sans snakes!)
She thrived ‘mongst such studies, as Dad ‘mongst iced cakes

From kids came other kids (for those first kids are grown)
Dickens, Tolkien, Lewis need dusted; nay, don’t moan!
She’ll reach for them ‘gain, I’m really quite sure of this
But now it’s Seuss, wiping poo-poos – Grammy’s full of bliss!


That’s all for now, folks!  Now thank God for your momma and go enjoy getting to be HER kid!

I have a fun mommy… who really likes Resee’s, apparently.  🙂  I think I should have gotten her one.  Sorry, mom!  I’ll have to do that next Mother’s Day.  🙂
