So how was everyone's Mother's Day?
Ours was kind of non-existent. I mean, Myself, Twin and Brother helped her and our dad paint the main floor of their house on Saturday. But Twin works on Sundays so not much happened on the actual holiday.
Of course our mom forgot it was Mother's Day until like 3 days before. And we had only realized this fact a few days before that.
We did send her flowers, which arrived while we were painting so that was fun.
The card read:
You created me Mom, so I guess you're to blame
For the love that I feel just from hearing your name
You're as tender and corned beef and as warm as pastrami
I wuv my mommy
Which is the best Mother's Day poem ever, and comes from Futurama.
When we were little our mom used to work nights in a nursing home. There is supposedly a "haunted floor" in the nursing home, but she didn't work on that one.
To seemingly make up for this fact she used to read to us before she went to work and before we went to bed.
I'm sure most mom's read fun things to their kids but not our mom. Nope.
She read us Stephen King short stories.
I distinctly remember The Mangler giving me nightmares.
Still though, it's not like we asked her to read us happy fun stuff.
So happy late Mother's Day Mom, and thanks for the nightmares.
How about you? Did you do anything fun for Mother's Day?
