Mother's Humor...

May is here and Mother's Day is rapidly approaching.... How exciting!...our very own day!!!
A day with no laundry, no cooking, no cleaning, just pure pampering, right?...One can only dream....Anyway, if you are a Mom, a Step mom or a Grandma raising the third generation of the family you have probably felt like this before...

About school work:
"I'm not upset that your lamb followed you to school, Mary, but I would like to know how he got a better grade than you!"
Mary's Mom

About their sense of style:
"But, Albert, it's your senior picture. Can't you do something about your hair? Styling gel, mousse, something....?"
Albert Einstein's Mom

"Again with the stovepipe hat, Abe? Can't you just wear a baseball cap like the other kids?"
Abraham Lincoln's Mom

About curfews:
"That's a nice story, but now tell me where you've really been for the past 3 days!"
Jonah's Mom

About how much they cost a month:
"It's a nice car, Bruce, but do you realize how much the insurance will be!"
Batman's Mom

About their social life:
"Clark, your father and I have discussed it, and we've decided you can have your own telephone line. Now will you quit spending so much time in all those phone booths!"
Superman's Mom

And how about those nights when you just want some peace and quiet...you did everything you were supposed to do during the day and now you just want an hour for yourself... just you and your glitter...

"Of course I'm proud that you invented the electric light bulb, dear. Now turn off that light and get to bed!"
Thomas Edison's Mom

Happy Monday!
