Mother, May I? Yes, You May


Hello Lovelies--what are you doing this weekend?


We are going to a Mother's Day Brunch at The Chocolate Bar restaurant. YUM!


HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of the moms out there!



There is no one who comes here that does not know this is a true map of the world, with you there in the center, making home for us all. The Story People

The phrase "working mother" is redundant. Jane Sellman

Sweater, n.: garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly. Ambrose Bierce

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. Tenneva Jordan

My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.

Yeah, I always wondered about that working mother part. So us stay-at-home mothers just watch soaps all day and eat chocolate?

Btw, I'm so coming with you to the chocolate restaurant. We don't have one of those here. Maybe Steena and I will have to open one. Hmmm. Maybe not.

Have a great weekend, Christine!

Happy Mother's Day! The Chocolate Bar sounds so good...I've walked by, but I haven't been in it yet. We're having a moms' cookout at our condo. It looks a little cool, but no rain, so that's good.

Happy Mother's Day. Loved the quotes. I'm convinced it was none other than a man that came up with the phrase - 'working mother'. (Hugs)Indigo

Love that working mother quote! The second you give birth you automatically have a job! The BEST and hardest job you'll ever have right?
