And you deserve no less

I’m in a financial mess.

And cheap, but oh so witty!

Happy Mother’s Day. I can’t even begin to think how proud you are of me for remembering to send you a Mother’s Day card!
Mom, I know you do the dishes
And I know you cook the food.
I know you scrub down all the floors
Even when you’re in a bad mood.
And every night you walk the dog
While I’m watching all my shows.
On Thursday’s you take out the trash
And every spring you wash the windows.
Mom, I know you’re sad I’ll go someday
And leave you all alone,
But right now I’m only 35
So what other place could I call home?
Happy Mother’s Day, thanks for always thinking about me to the detriment of your mental health!

I’m glad that you’re my mother,
Kind and caring and strong.
Because surely no-one else,
Could have put up with me this long!
Mothers are like glue. Even when you can’t see them, they’re still holding the family together. ~ Susan Gale
Thanks for being a great Mom through my 30-year awkward phase…
Happy Mother’s Day to the woman who helped me become the person I am today. You did an awesome job!
Happy Mother’s Day. I would have made you breakfast in bed… if you’d taught me how to cook.
For all the diapers that you changed,
For all the play dates you arranged.
For all the trips back and forth to school,
For cleaning all the spit up and the drool.
Why is there only one Mother’s Day?
You could have at least gotten the entire month of May!
Dear Mom, thank you for keeping all the bad stuff I did from Dad.
Mum you know the worst of me, my weaknesses and follies,
I know you’ve seen me poop my pants and cut the heads off dollies,
You know all my most embarrassing moments, you know that I’m a nut,
So what can I do to repay your love… and make sure you keep your mouth shut!?
Unlike King Lear I am well aware
That extravagant expressions of affection
Do not necessarily mean that our children adore us,
Or that their failure to write or phone or do lots of lovely things for us
Means that they don’t.
I am, in addition, well aware
That most of the wise, mature, sensible women I know
Have nothing but disdain for Mother’s Day,
Which they rightfully declare to be a crass, commercial way
Of getting guilty children to spend money.
Furthermore, I am hoping that I
Will turn into one of those wise, mature, sensible women
Long before this current decade is through.
But meanwhile, if you know what’s good for you,
Send flowers. ~ Judith Viorst
