Funny emails From Mothers

Hi Hon,
Don’t cross B. off the list.  If I rejected Dad because he was “too eager” I might be single today and never have had three great kids!!!  As I’ve told you, Dad used to chase me down the hall of the classroom building!  Tell me that is not “too eager”?  Remember your new criteria?  No prison record, not a lawyer, and I forgot the other criteria — no drug addiction or whatever.
Love, Mom

Subject: Just a thought
Don’t think I’m being nosy, but after meeting Dan the other night I wondered how you’re going to deal with explaining your “false advertisement” when the time comes? (You know — your padded bra!) I know you roll your eyes when I say this, but you have a BEAUTIFUL body and you should accept it and love you for YOU. Then you wouldn’t find yourself in such an awkward position with your boyfriend! Call me tomorrow, Mom.
Subject: Need your help
Please describe me. I am trying to write my Internet dating profile.

Short and to the point:
"std's are on the rise. love, mom."  

I bought some baby clothes for you today. I know you aren't pregnant, but I thought that maybe if I bought the clothes it would work in I could will you to get knocked up. Are you knocked up? Tell that husband of yours to get busy. I want you two sexing it up like rabbits. Hear me...RABBITS.

Mothering Sunday Poem

Mothering Sunday

In the times before Bank Holidays
Farmer's boys and servant girls
Left the farm or big house early,
Going home for the day
On Mothering Sunday
Though home was miles away,
With flowers for their mother's present
Gathered as they went.

It's different these days:
All you have to do is stop
At the flower shop
With the pocket money you've saved
And the daffodils there
Came by train or even by plane;
But the present still means the same
For the language of flowers doesn't change

~by Stanley Cook.

Mother's Day - For Girls Only!

She can deal with stress and carry heavy burdens.

She smiles when she
feels like screaming, and she sings when

she feels like crying. She
cries when she’s happy and laughs when

she’s afraid. Her love is
unconditional. There’s only one thing wrong

with her. She forgets what
she’s worth! Pass this to every beautiful

woman you know. Remind her
that she’s unique. I love you girl

Valentine Poem for Mothers

The Rose Family by Robert Frost


The rose is a rose,

And was always a rose.

But the theory now goes

That the apple’s a rose,

And the pear is, 

and so’s The plum, 

I suppose.

The dear only know

What will next prove a rose.

You, of course, are a rose–

But were always a rose.
