Suggested Mother's Day Gifts

As a mama, I look forward to a Mother's Day breakfast in bed with children crowded in around me, watching my face intently to see how much I enjoy the peanut butter eggs.

As a second grade teacher, I have a vested interest in making sure all mothers everywhere get recognized with homemade cards, paper flowers, plaster of Paris hand prints, and heartfelt poems.

And I believe that it is essential for dads to further aid the kids in showing appreciation to mom by taking them shopping for all the extras: Chocolate, wine, diamonds, chocolate, and a good book.

For chocolate, may I recommend Ghirardelli or Godiva? For wine, I suggest something pink. For diamonds, the bigger the better. And for a good book, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that she'll never forget this Mother's Day when, with one click of your mouse, you give her, If Mama Don't Laugh, It Ain't Funny:

I did buy your book -- a gift from me to me, one my girls (all three are mommies) may enjoy when they visit. Which is at least weekly, on Sundays for brunch after church.

If Mama Don't Laugh arrived late last week. I keep it at my desk to read a paragraph or two every so often, and you never fail me -- you are gifted with the way you say things! (Never mind the woman in your previous blog who knows she can write but doesn't.) So far all your stories -- stretched or not -- ring true. I will come see your blog regularly.
