Mothers Day Craft and Humor

I know that some of you count on this blog for great Mothers’ Day Craft ideas so I didn’t want to let you you down but after the link for the craft I included a little “Mothers Day Humor”

Nanny Gael Ann hasn’t been around much this year because she has a new charge but she did send me this cute Mothers’ Day project I wanted to share with today.

My friend Katie sent me this list. Katie and I grew up in the 50′s and 60′s when parents actually said these things to their children (and we all grew up in spite of it)
In honor of Mother’s Day I wanted to share a little “Mom Humor”
