To All Mothers...

For Mother's Day, I wanted to do something special to thank ALL mothers for being who they are. (and especially mine...) So I "stole" a poem that you all have probably heard and transposed it for mothers instead of nanny's.


 Wanted... A Mother for Ten Adorable Children

If you want this choice position
Have a cheery disposition
Rosy cheeks, no warts!
Play games, all sorts

You must be kind, you must be witty
Very sweet and fairly pretty
Take us on outings, give us treats
Sing songs, bring sweets

Never be cross or cruel
Never give us castor oil or gruel
Love us as sons and daughters
And never smell of barley waters

If you won't scold and dominate us
We will never give you cause to hate us
We won't hide your spectacles
So you can't see
Put toads in your bed
Or pepper in your tea
Hurry, Mother!
Many thanks
Sincerely,

All us Eddy kids.


And yes, that poem does describe my mother...although, upon second thought, she does try to feed us oatmeal sometimes...which kid of counts as gruel, wouldn't you say? :P

Wishing a Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there! (But of course, especially mine...)

Love you Mom!!! :)

By the way, before I forget again...my favorite Star Wars character is Obi-wan Kenobi, or, as he was affectionately called by Luke Skywalker, "Old Ben"... and yes, I like both the young, and the old. :) In my opinion he is the most mature character in all the episodes excepting perhaps the first one...besides Yoda.

The young...
...and the old

    1. Early next week is when I'm hoping too. It kind of depends on how my schedule is looking, and right now, it's looking pretty busy. I'm going on a REALLY long hike tomorrow, and as a pastor's kid Sunday is always busy...but anyways, I'm hoping to post the next contest by at least Wednesday of next week. :)

I LOVE COMMENTS. But be warned, if your comment is impolite, contains swear words, or is disrespectful of God, I will kill it. Just kidding. ;)
(Seriously though...it WILL DIE.)
