    Hey guys, with Mother's Day arriving next weekend, let's take a minute to think about how cool our moms are and share some of that appreciation here.

    My mom is the greatest! After a shockingly rough, poverty-striken childhood, she managed to grow up sane and safe, get married, and raise four kids (3 boys and a girl) during rough economic times to become (mostly) responsible and compassionate adults. Then, way late in life, she got pregnant again and kept on working two jobs to provide the best environment in which to raise little ol' me.

    I'm proud to say I've inherited something of her big heart, her open mind, and her penchhant for quiet reflection. I only wish I possessed more of her good qualities!

    So how about it: who else has a mom worthy of high praise?

    Boy, this topic is sinking like a stone, isn't it?

    I suppose this sort of thing comes off as pretty strange when posted by a creature of pure evil, huh?

    Come on, guys. I've read mentions here or there about how great this or that particular mom has been. 'Fess up!

    I'd post something about my mom, but she isn't exactly a "model citizen". I don't know how I turned out so normal.

    My mother and I are very close...we talk on the phone everyday (at least once a day) since I can't see her, being that we live on opposite coasts. Being an only child of a woman widowed at the age of 28, she did a good job of raising me single handedly, sending me to the best schools, encouraging me, instilling my strong religious faith, and praying for me constantly. She has stood behind me in all that I do, often shaking her head wondering why I do some of the things I do, but always supporting them. We are very similar in lost of ways, which often causes us to butt heads, but it's because we are both passionate about how what we want and how we feel. (hey we're both part Italian, what can you expect???)

    I'm going to get to spend Mother's Day with her since she's coming for the weekend, as well as my grandparents (her parents) to celebrate my grandfather's 90th birthday. So it will be a family weekend...I'm sure it will be trying at times, but we'll all have fun. Especially because my mother and her mother are just alike, and my mother and I are just alike...so three generations of similarities always make for an argument or three! :D

    When me prayers were poorly said
    Who tucked me in me widdle bed
    And spanked me ass 'til it was red,
    Me Muddah.

    Who took me from me cozy abode
    And put me on the cold commode
    And made me pee when I could not,
    Me Muddah.

    And when the morning light would come
    And I in my crib me dribbled some
    Who wiped me tiny little bum,
    Me Muddah.

    Who would me hair so neatly part
    And hug me gently to her heart
    And sometimes squeze me 'til I fart,
    Me Muddah.

    Who looked at me with eyebrows knit
    And nearly have a queen-size fit
    When in me Sunday pants me shit,
    Me Muddah.

    When at night her bed did squeak
    And me raised me head to have a peek
    Who yelled at me to go to sleep,
    Me Faddah.

    I do! My mom is raising us 4 boys. She has to put up with a fuckin stalker. She even told my dad o move back in when he reached the 5th (final) stage of MS. And her and I are WAY close. I'm basically the male version of her.

    I lost my Mom in 1986 to cancer. I received this in an e-mail and I thought it was cute.


    Why GOD Made MOMS


    1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.

    2. Mostly to clean the house.

    3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.


    How did God make mothers?

    1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.

    2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.

    3. God made my mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts.


    What ingredients are mothers made of?

    1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.

    2. They had to get their start from men's bones. Then they mostly use string, I think.


    Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?

    1. We're related.

    2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's moms like me.


    What kind of little girl was your mom?

    1. My mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.

    2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.

    3. They say she used to be nice.


    What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?

    1. His last name.

    2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?

    3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores?


    Why did your mom marry your dad?

    1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my mom eats a lot.

    2. She got too old to do anything else with him.

    3. My grandma says that mom didn't have her thinking cap on.


    Who's the boss at your house?

    1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.

    2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.

    3. I guess Mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.


    What's the difference between moms and dads?

    1. Moms work at work & work at home, & dads just go to work at work.

    2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.

    3. Dads are taller & stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.

    4. Moms have magic; they make you feel better without medicine...


    What does your mom do in her spare time?

    1. Mothers don't do spare time.

    2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.


    What would it take to make your mom perfect?

    1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.

    2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.


    If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?

    1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.

    2. I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it and not me.

    3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.
