He's The Sweetest!

My hubby is just the sweetest! Last night he came home from being out of town overnight. With him he brought me a card.

On the front it has a smiling sun on the top half and rain clouds on the bottom half and says:

Remember, whether It's a good day or a bad day...

And on the inside it says:

It's always a LOVE-you day!

Then he signed it:

I Love You

Love Me

Awwwwwww......... :-)

Chap Stick

Got this in an e-mail and it made me giggle. Thought it might do the same for you! Enjoy reading it!

We used to have a cat named Jack. He was a great cat and the kids would carry him around and sit on him and nothing ever bothered him. He used to hang out and nap all day long on the bathroom mat.

We have 3 kids, at the time of this story, they were 4 years old, 3 years old and 1 year old. The middle one is Eli. Eli really loved chap stick, LOVED it. He kept asking to use my chap stick and then losing it. Finally one day, I showed him where in the bathroom that I kept my chap stick. I explained he could use it whenever he wanted but he needed to put it right back in the drawer after he finished because I used it sometimes several times a day.

That year, on Mother's Day, we were having the typical rush around to try to get ready for church with everyone crying and carrying on. My two boys were fighting over the toy in the cereal box. I am trying to nurse my little one at the same time I am putting on my make-up. Everything is a mess and everyone has long forgotten that this is a wonderful day to honor me and the amazing job that is motherhood.

We finally have the older one and the baby loaded in the car, and I am looking for Eli. I have searched everywhere and I finally go into the bathroom. There was Eli. He was applying my chap stick very carefully to Jack's rear end. Eli looked right into my eyes and said "chapped..." Now if you have a cat, you know that he is right - their little bottoms do look pretty chapped. And, frankly, Jack didn't seem to mind. And, the only question to ask at that point was whether it was the FIRST time Eli had done that to the cat's behind or the hundredth!?!

And THAT is my favorite Mother's Day moment ever, because it reminds us that no matter how hard we try to civilize these glorious little creatures, there will always be that day when you realize.... They've been using your chap stick on the cat's butt.
