How was YOUR Mothers Day?

Mother's Day will never be the same after reading this experience from a friend on another dog list...I hope you enjoy it..I truly believe it happened. With children, all things are possible! Enjoy!

Chap Stick - love this!

We had this great 10 year old cat named Jack who just recently died. Jack was a great cat and the kids
would carry him around and sit on him and nothing ever bothered him. He used to hang out and nap all day
long on the mat in our bathroom. We have 3 kids and at the time of this story they were 4 years
old, 3 years old and 1 year old.

The middle one is Eli. Eli really loved chap stick. LOVED it. He kept
asking to use my chap stick and then losing it.

Finally one day I showed him where in the bathroom that I kept my chap
stick and explained he could use it whenever he wanted to but he needed to put it right back in the drawer after he
finished because I used it sometimes several times a day.

That year, on Mother's Day, we were having the typical rush around to try to get ready for church with everyone
crying and carrying on. My two boys are fighting over the toy in the cereal box. I'm trying to nurse my little one at the
same time I'm putting on my make-up. Everything is a mess and everyone has long forgotten that this is a wonderful day
to honor me and the amazing job that is motherhood.

We finally have the older one and the baby loaded in the car, and I am looking for Eli.. I have searched everywhere
and I finally go into the bathroom. There was Eli. He was applying my chap stick very carefully to Jack's rear
end. Eli looked right into my eyes and said "chapped..."

Now if you have a cat, you know that he is right - their little bottoms do look pretty chapped and, frankly, Jack
didn't seem to mind. And the only question to ask at that point was whether it was the FIRST time Eli had done that
to the cat's behind or the hundredth!?!

And THAT is my favorite Mother's Day moment ever, because it reminds us that no matter how hard we try to civilize
these glorious little creatures, there will always be that day when you realize... they've been using your chap stick
on the cat's butt.

Too cute...

To answer your question, my Mother's day was unspectacular, woke up did the dishes, did the laundry, got irritated because my son failed to take out the trash the night prior, so my whole house smelled like onions when I woke up! I pretty much ended up saying to heck with it and crawling back in bed around noon to snuggle and nap with Gucci and watch House MD.

My DH did get me an iPhone and that was the highlight, I've been wanting a smart phone forEver.
