I hope all the Mom's out there have a wonderful Mother's Day!

This random conversation took place yesterday I had to share:

Princess Nagger: "Every day should be Mother's Day!"

Me: "Why do you say that?"

PN: "Well, every day is Mother's Day for me, because you're my mother and I love you!"

Me: "Awwwww! That's so sweet!"

PN: "So Happy Mother's Day and I love you!"

Anne Morrow's Comment about no time off is very true. Love pets... but when Oprah compares her dogs to children... She can leave those pets for weeks. Or, she can put her dogs in a cage...I think this is called child abuse?

Anyway.... great comments! Happy Mothers Day!

You have a very sweet, and intelligent, princess. If she should ever run for office, she has my vote. Especially if she can implement the whole mother's day should be every day program.

Hope your having a great mother's day!!

Great quotes! Tara FORGOT it was Mother's Day. I reminded her of the free carnation and manicure kit I got at the pool store on Friday... and the comment that I was considering making a "seafood feast" for dinner tonight for Mother's Day.... She replied... I just didn't realize it was today! Then she asks, can I have $35. I said no, she said, just say yes. So I said yes, then she said... here's $35 to spend on whatever you want! LOL. Guess what? I spent it on her!

Happy Mother's Day!

Thank you for the Mother's Day Greetings! Hope your day with the Princess is delightful.
Sophia Loren's quote is terrific: I always go around here asking why I have to think for three (yet I have only one child ;-)
