Happy Mother's Day!

Great news!  I'm not in Mommy Jail this Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there who have made it this far without throttling your children!  For myself, being Vladimir's mom is the best!  He has enriched my life immensely and I would have little to write about if it weren't for him.  

Happy Mother's Day as well to my own dear mother, who has yet to throttle me... although I'm sure she was tempted many times!  I'm sure I was the most irritating, confusing, annoying daughter in the world.  I started out sweet and kind and loving when I was little and then it was all downhill once I got to be about 12 years old.  Funny how that happens.  I've heard it has something to do with hormones.   (Thank GOD for having a boy child instead of one of the female persuasion!)

So... to all mothers everywhere... may your days be blessed with sloppy kisses, colorful little crayon drawings, bouquets of flowers picked from your own garden, handmade cards that may come a few days late,  and last minute phone calls from recalcitrant children like me who mean well, but forgot where they put the card that they bought weeks ago!

Happy Mother's Day to anyone who has ever loved a child who has come into their life!   In honor of the occasion, I'm giving you this coupon....

Get Out Of Mommy Jail Free Card

Compliments of


This card to be used when you allow your child to do something so incredibly stupid that someone feels the need to contact the authorities.

No Questions Asked... Honest!

(We’ve all been there at one time or another.)

Can I have three of those cards - one for each kid...please?

Dear Phillipia,

We're actually running a special this month. Each recipient gets one extra card (beyond the number they receive for current progeny) to retain for future use. Occasionally the little rascals actually do something so cute that it causes us to lose sight of the bigger picture and begin longing for another child. Damn them! I hate when they do that!
