Hello, Chaos Crew…
This year for Mother’s Day, I am going with theme gifts for my mother, my mother-in-law, my sistermothers, my sisteraunts and other mother-like figures in my kids life: Good card and those beautifully printed paper hand towels for guest bathrooms. Nothing says you matter like paper products. My sister Julie, who devotes many more hours to gift shopping than I do, called those guest towels the Gift of 2010, thanks to the H1N1 virus. Who doesn’t appreciate a fresh towel in a guest bathroom? And, she insisted I buy dozens for the company holiday party I hosted in December. They were a hit. As usual, my big sister Julie was right. I have now adopted the guest towel as my go- to gift. So get ready, Moms of All Kinds, ’cause that’s what’s in the bag on Sunday!
In the meantime, I have so, so enjoyed the funny responses to the question I posted on Facebook: What’s the Worst Mother’s Day Gift You’ve Ever Received. So far, my unofficial winner is the pregnant woman coffee mug for the mom-to-be Deanna. Because it’s just gross to drink out of a mug featuring low-slung breasts. A close second, the chastity pajamas given by an ex-husband! But please, check out the Facebook post ( and friend me if you haven’t) . Then add you own unfortunate gift below– wither given or received. I’ll be reviewing on the podcast tomorrow.
