So Sorry - Happy Mother's Day!

It's that time of year again.  The birds are chirping, the sun is out and the minions need hats, coats, t-shirts and sunblock each morning at daycare because the weather can't quite decide what to do.  It's also just over a week until Mother's Day.  So in annual tradition, today I look back on the year that has passed and apologize to my own mom for "crimes" that I most likely violated when I was three years old based on my own motherhood experiences.  Here it goes....

Dearest Mom,

I am so incredibly sorry for....

  • Being a drama queen and then crying because you suggested that I was being, well, dramatic.
  • Handing you my banana peels, granola bar wrappers and dirty Kleenexes instead of throwing them into the garbage and acting like you were my own personal custodian.
  • Throwing the above-mentioned garbage onto the floor (or down the sides of the couch cushions) instead of in the garbage "myself" as you suggested.
  • So much car sickness.  A hose is not enough to get out the smell.
  • Drawing on the walls with crayons or pens.
  • Eating sand and dirt out of potted plants and getting worms. When confronted about eating sand this week Jack responded with, "It's okay mom, this time I pretended it was chicken."  It's only a matter of time.
  • Using your antique wooden furniture as my own personal sticker book.
  • Pooping on the floor beside the toilet.
  • Making you act like referee only to sneak back to playing with the sibling I was fighting with moments later.
  • Tattling over stupid stuff and "forgetting" to tell you stuff that mattered.
  • Not keeping track of my toys/personal belonging and then throwing a tantrum when you couldn't produce them on demand.
  • Stretching out any of your favourite shirts by yelling, "I'm going back inside your belly!" and literally climbing inside your shirt.
  • Demanding that we watch the same show (Dora, Peppa the Pig) for the bazillionth time and then sweetly asking if you could sit with me and cuddle, because I know you will, even if you don't want to.
  • Forcing you to spend more time in disgusting public washrooms than you ever thought possible (even though we left the house ten minutes ago).
  • Any time I was a liar: told bold faced lies, was shocked and devastated when you busted me and then requested an apology for making me "feel sad".
  • The mass destruction of your property, most recently ripping $30 worth of wrapping paper because you were "practising opening presents".
  • This only being the tip of the ice berg....

P.S. Still not sorry for the black lipstick I wore as a teenager.

P.P.S. I wouldn't trade any of it for anything in the world!

  1. I can relate this post to my children. Both of my kiddos do all this at home. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed mother’s day. One of my cousins is party planner and she organized a huge mother’s day party at one of most popular party city locations NY. We all had been invited there and had loads of fun!!

  2. Hello dear guys,

    The area and neighborhood is the most important thing to consider when building a laundromat business. When you build a laundromat service or obtaining a coin-operated laundry service, ask the owner why they have decided to sell. Be persistent with your inquiries.Read more at-:24 hour Toronto coin laundromat

    Thanks and welcome
