(This is not my work. I don’t know who the author is because it was sent to me a long time ago by a friend with no credit listed). I have spent two days in our home office sorting, sorting and organizing. I was very tired this afternoon when I came across this random writing and I laughed out loud. In the old days, I was this Mother. I hope it gives some other Mothers a bit of a chuckle too! Since we are only two weeks into January, Christmas may still be fresh on our minds and this may serve as a reminder of where the magic of Christmas really comes from).

Look, look! Where is Mother? Mother is slumped in a chair. Mother doesn’t look so good. Mother has dark circles under her bloodshot eyes. See Mother stare into space. Why can’t Mother be like happy, happy Father?
