I posted this once before, but I love it so, and thought it would be appropriate to share it again.

How to Be a Mean Mother

A mean mother never allows candy or sweets
to take the place of a well balanced meal.

A mean mother insists on knowing where her
children are at all times, who their friends are
and what they do.

A mean mother breaks the child labor law
by making her children work - washing dishes,
making beds, learning to cook and doing other
cruel and unpleasant chores.

A mean mother makes life miserable for
offspring by insisting that they always tell the truth.
A mean mother has teenagers who are
wiser and more sensible.

A mean mother can smile with secret delight
and pride when she hears her grandchildren
call their parents "mean".

What the world needs now are more Mean Mothers!

Love it! I've been told that I've been in the mean mother's club for some time now... and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Have a wonderful Mother's day!

My kids have enough friends. I'm the parent. We can be friends when they're grown up and good, solid individuals.
Happy Mother's Day.
