Happy Mother’s Night!

We may have made reference to this guiding principle of parenting in the past.

All it takes is a little advance planning.

The thin man

Rely on the Daily Martini to come across with three different, all tasty, recipes for a Mothers Day Martini! The Blushing Lady, the White Lady, and the Pink Lady (although my own Pink Lady recipe differs somewhat, but is tasty as well). The most important thing is that someone else mix it, very strong, and they bring it to you in bed.

Ed Asner

My mother’s menu consisted of two choices: Take it or leave it.
 Buddy Hackett

If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?
Milton Berle

Most children threaten at times to run away from home. This is the only thing that keeps some parents going.
Phyllis Diller

Mothers are all slightly insane.
J.D. Salinger

And I couldn’t resist these, either…

Dictionary of a Mother

One who asks if the kids would care to order dessert.

The inevitable result when the baby doesn’t appreciate the strained carrots.

Full Name
What you call your child when you’re mad at him.

The people who think your children are wonderful even though they’re sure you’re not raising them right.

How we want our children to be for as long as they do everything we say.

Show Off
A child who is more talented than yours.

None of the kids that live in your house.
