Happy Mothers Day



I have the meanest mother in the world.

I had to eat breakfast everyday and

take homemade sandwitches to school.

I had to eat dinner at the table and

eat all my vegetables.

I had to finish my homework before dinner,

stay at the table until everyone had finished,

say "please" and "thank you" and

use the names of the people I was addressing.

I had to wash and dry dishes,

make my own bed and even keep my room tidy.

On Sunday, I had to go to Sunday school,

read books and play board games with my siblings.

And who do I thank for this?

My mean mother.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mean mothers who

set a standard of behaviour and a

pattern for living.
