Happy Happy Mom's Day

Even though Mother's Day is one of those greeting card created holidays, I think it's a very important day to celebrate.

Cuz let's face it, we all take our mommas for granted. And even though it sometimes seems we live in a sitcom world, the reality is, our lives are tied up in a neat little bow after 30 minutes (including commercial breaks).

However, we can learn lots about parenting from sitcoms...because I'm quite certain most of these fictional moms were based on someone real.

Here are a couple of quotes from two of my favorite TV Moms (and let's face it, these quotes have shaped me into the awesome mom I am today):

That 70s Show: Kitty Forman: All families are embarrassing. If they aren't embarrassing they're dead.

Married with Children: Peg Bundy: [to Kelly and Bud] Kids, you know the speech, you did a bad thing, blah, blah, don't do it again.

Did you have a great mother's day? Did you get something special or give something special?

The boys and I went to see Iron Man 2 (fantastic, btw) and then had a low key day at home. It was pretty much perfect.


  1. I love Kitty.

    My day was awesome. We hung out on our new deck and then played croquet with the new Wiley Rule. The last time we played croquet, we didn't have Wiley the Dog Obsessed with Balls. Life was easier then. So, to make it interesting, you had to play your ball no matter where the dog ran off with it. And you could try to get him to bring it closer to your wicket--but that was futile.

    It was a fun day. Wiley loves Mother's Day now.

  2. I had a great day! Got jewelry, saw my daughter's concert, etc. :D
