H is for the "regular boys" Haircut you forced me to always get. A is for the Annoying way you nagged at me. P is for the Parties I threw when you weren't at home, but you found out anyways. P is for the Pinches on the arm, when i wasn't on my best behavior. Y is for the way you Yelled at me when all my friends were around M is for Making me do things I didn't want to do. O is for Opening my bedroom door without knocking. T is for Telling me that Santa isn't real. H is for Hating all the girls I ever brought home. E is for that "Either my way or the highway" little diddy you used to use. R is for the Room, you always made me clean. S is for the Snooping through my things. D is for Doing my homework, before I could go out and play. A is for those Awful polyester fashion choices, you MADE me wear to church. Y is for the endless Yard work I thought would never end. put it together and what does it spell???HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!! Love you Mom.

R is for red, 'cos that's gonna be the colour of sconi's butt when his Ma reads this. U is for how Unbelievably tolerant sconi's Ma is gonna need to be when she reads this. N is for Numb, 'cos that's how sconi's butt's gonna feel after his Ma reads this and spanks him silly. S is for Sorry, 'cos this is how sconi's gonna feel after his Ma reads this and whips his butt. C is for Cream, 'cos sconi's gonna need it to soothe his whipped butt. O is for Oh my God! 'Cos this is what sconi's Ma is gonna scream when she reads this. N is for Night tremors, 'cos this is what sconi's probably gonna have for at least a month after his Ma reads this and kicks his butt. I is for Innuit, 'cos sconi's probably gonna have to leave the USA and join an Eskimo Tribe just to escape the wrath of his Ma after she reads this and kicks his butt.

I don't know..sconi had to get that sense of humor from somewhere..lets hope it was from him mom and that they will find it cute and funny and instead of kicking his butt she will give him hugs instead.

I dunno, but this ode seems strangely appropriate for many people I know. I think that a mom who has raised such a creative soul may be tolerant of this. Somewhat... we can hope...

"it touched me in places only I've touched before!" It's very unusual for a discussion to touch your elbows and baby toe Stormy! Hallmark could benefit greastly from a niche such as this I'm sure. lol.

That's a very nice poem that I'm sure my son can relate to (well, most of it atleast). I'm going to give this to him and he might reproduce it for next Mother's Day:P

Those words are completely similar to my mom. But i guess that's what all moms about in every generation. and almost every Mom in the world describes i your discussion. that makes me miss my mom a lot.sadly i just texted her and didn't call guess i should consider calling her anytime next week. I miss my MOm a lot.

Now that is cute..and very true for most of also. My mom is special to me and I wish I had the money to show her just how much. I wish I could send her to a spa for the day then shopping to get new clothes and on to a Hair salon to get her anything she wanted.. a Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio for a makeover and then a night out on the town to show it all off.. Sadly I can't,but one of these days I will.

So what did she find when she Opened your door anyway and Snooped through your things? Come on now, you're amongst friends here! Since I haven't really gotten to celebrate Mother's Day in eight years (love and miss you mom!) because my ex thinks HIS mother (and for a while, grandmother) took precedence over our daughter's VERY ALIVE OWN MOTHER! (me). But this year, she's going to spend the day with me--I'll treasure it even more because she'll be sixteen in 6 1/2 weeks (and I'll be that much closer to being a grandma!). I appreciate the smile...even if I'm sniffling (yah yah, I just SAY it's allergies!).

Hey sconi! What a beautiful tribute to your Mom! I hope that she is going to see this? That was actually one of the nicest things that I have seen you say here on mylot! I am so proud of you! Now don't forget to get something for missybear, who seems to feel that she is now your "mom" too! That was another discussion from yesterday, I think?

The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men - from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes.
