Thursday Thirteen #24 "Things Mothers Really Want for Mother's Day"


Header by samulli


Here are thirteen things mothers really want for Mother's Day, but probably won't get. I think mothers would like these, at least for one day - on Mother's Day!

1. Sleep. Any kind of sleep. Sleep in, naps, go to bed early.

11. To have someone else drive the kids to dance class, troop meetings, etc.

  25. It's as if you're reading my mind SUe!

  26. Great List!! I told my girls it is Mother's Month!! They didn't buy it.

  27. Interesting list. I would love to take all these off my mother for a day, but I find that it would be mid life crisis if I ever did. My mother has grown too fond of her tasks over the years, but she does like it when I do alleviate some of the tasks. There are others that I feel she doesn't want me to go anywhere near, as its those things that are very dear to her.

  28. Actually, even those of us without kids wish for half these things -- here's hoping you at least get to sleep in, or get a nice meal. Happy Mother's Day!
