“Happy Funny Mother’s Day”

Today is Mother’s Day and at many homes there are flowers, cards, gifts and memorials given to our mothers.  We get sentimental and mushy and talk about how special our Mother is to us and we place her on a pedestal and look up to her and proclaim her to be the Queen of the Day. Our Mothers are all that but we also want to acknowledge the funny side of motherhood and how funny our Moms can be at times.  Here are some funny quotes I’d like to share with you on this special Mother Day because sometimes parenting and being a Mother can be a funny thing.  Happy Mother’s Day to all our funny mothers.  (AP)



“The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers.  The original meal has never been found.”   (Calvin Trillin)



“I want my children to have all the things I couldn’t afford.  Then I want to move in with them.”   (Phyllis Diller)



“The best way to keep children at home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant, and let the air of the tires.”   (Dorothy Parker)
