HaPPy BeLaTeD MoTHeR'S DaY

Happy Monday Chickens and a Happy Belated Mother's Day to you all!

Every Mother's Day, I like to RENEW MY VOWS. Kinda like Heidi Klum and Seal do, only without the wedding dress and the groom.

This year, I am going to try to be more like Carolyn Ingalls.


She was always kind, always patient, and she took that mean old Mrs. Olsen with a grain of salt. She was a master of multi-tasking: capable of milking the cow, gathering the eggs, and sewing a fetching calico hat all while putting home cooked cornbread on the table and seeing to Pa's needs. Plus, later on I remember she opened her own hotel in town--Carolyn's I think it was called, and she made a bazillion dollars and didn't even care when Charles went off and had that affair with that Marla Maples woman because she was totally resilient and could work a french twist. Then, of course, she died and left all her money to her dog. But anyway, this year I am totally going to try to be more like her as a mother, because my role model for last year just didn't work out.




Which famous mom are YOU going to strive to be more like this year?

Miss Thystle said...

Peg Bundy, complete with the spandex. Of course, with more sex...and um, not all. Maybe I should be Rosann Connor instead, I've always liked Dan Connor as a TV dad. Of course, she had three kids and thats like 2 1/2 kids more than I can handle, but they can't all be winners can they?

Miss Thystle said...

by "not all" I meant Not Al, obviously.

Marge Simpson

Courtney Love

Jane! said...

With or without meds?
I'm going to try being less like Rosanne Connor and more like Jane Jetson. I really want that self cleaning kitchen. Not to mention Rosie the robot.

I always liked Hazel. She was generally sweet and kind and stayed to the task, but she didn't take any gruff.

Something Happened Somewhere Turning said...

I'm not sure whether Hazel was really anybody's mom though?

Mother Theresa.

Although I'm sure Esmerelda will keep popping up every now and then!

Is it the more money you have the more stupid and lame things you come up with? I mean come on…find something better to do with your time and money, how about get an education you dumb asses!

Lorrie Veasey said...

Jordan needs a spanking.

Debbie said...

I knew I stopped watching Little House too soon. I missed all that good stuff.
I'm just going to continue to be myself. That scares the kids already and keeps them guessing enough as to which personality they'll come home to every day. My life is complete.

Nonnee said...

Well - I thank you anyway B J!

Zakary said...

Joan Crawford because my kids get away with murder.

And Lo is my new favorite.

I hope you had a great Mutha's Day, Mrs. V.
