Ahh, Motherhood

"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie." -- Tenneva Jordan

and with that quote, I must say there are few things better than the joy on my sons' face after he realizes we're having fish sticks and macaroni salad for dinner.

  5. You must be a very good Catholic!  My spouse is one of those freaks and won't eat meat on Fridays -- except when he forgets and eats the grilled ham & cheese sandwiches I made last night.  I'm so evil.

  8. Funny, but the truth for sure!  All mother's I know are this way.  We ordered Domino's Pizza last night, which made my kids happy.  And here I am trying to lose weight.  ::sigh::

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!~

  9. Awww this reminds me of my grandmother in PA.  For YEARS she would take us kids out once a week to eat.  We NEVER went out to eat because we were pretty poor growing up with 4 kids in the household.  So, even if she took us to McDonalds we were THRILLED.  But, everytime we would go, she would say "No, I will just have tea, I'm not hungry" and that's all she would  order.  I came to find out in my 30's that it wasn't that she wasn't hungry, it was that she didn't have enough money, so she would be sure all 4 of us would eat and she would just have the tea because it was only .25.  Isn't that wonderful?!  So, yes, that quote is very, very true!  :)  Thanks for bringing back a nice memory.
    Hugs and love,
    Lisa

  10. My mother fit that description entirely. I remember growing up that there would be nights that she wouldn't eat just to make sure I and my sister's kids had food. Or she'd eat something totally different than us (like soup and grilled cheese) when we were eating the meat and potatoes. I miss her. Thanks for the memories hun. Your son will appreciate them too. :-)
