Let’s take a moment for me to make fun of myself. OK? Let’s go!

Mommy Blogger pats herself on the back for her beautiful row of hydrangea bushes, heavy with electric blue blossoms (though the credit for the bushes most certainly belongs to the phenomenon of climate change).


Real Mommy spent so much time fussing with garden paths and repotting a gardenia, she allowed the monument to laundry to be built on her bed.

Mommy Blogger gets her kids to cheerfully help clean off the outdoor table for a fun picnic outside on the nice, clean deck!

Real Mommy cannot get her children to take responsibility for their own space, so they destroy their playroom in mere hours. (Yes, they even tore the curtains off the walls.)


Mommy Blogger would like to end things on a nice, pretty note: Mother’s Day flowers (and Spider Man!).

  1. I think some dramatics are in order– garbage bags. Throw everything in and they either break and beg to put stuff away or it goes away (your trunk, to Mom’s house for a while, a crazy taped up box in the basement, whatever).

    Well, hooray for both Mommies anyway! 🙂 They’re both working hard and doing a good job!

    • Yeah, I’m usually heavy on the afters. But if this is going to be a family scrapbook, I have to have some evidence for when my grandchildren are destroying my girls’ houses. 🙂
