Happy Mothers Day: Sun. May 10

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Good morning folks.

For some strange reason I am up at 7am. I'll disappoint my daughter because she wanted to make me my coffee, but she will still get her wish of making me breakfast. My other daughter is at her dads

Happy Mothers day to all the Moms, Mom-to-be, step moms, foster moms, mom-in-laws, this means Mom to anyone....human, feline... you're still a Mom/Mum/Mam/Mummy/Mommy.

A Mothers Love

To some love is just a word
To me it's a feeling
A feeling I get every time I look into your eyes
A feeling I get when I realize your my mom
A mom who loves, shares, A mom who inspires
Unconditionally
What's that?
That's love
A mothers love, but only you would know
And me
You returned that love time and time again
Possibly to much, nevertheless you did
Thank-you
Thank-you for being there when I needed you most
For being my rock when I should have been yours
Thank-you for believing in me, even when I doubted myself
For being the one person I could trust
No matter what, no matter where
But most of all thank-you for being you-my mom
A mom I am so proud to claim
I love you
Now and forever

For everyone: this one is so true....bottom line, teenage kids are cats.

Kids are Dogs, Teens are Cats
Author Unknown


I just realized that while children are dogs ... loyal and affectionate ...
teenagers are cats.

It's so easy to be a dog owner. You feed it, train it, boss it around. It
puts its head on your knee and gazes at you as if you were a Rembrandt
painting. It bounds indoors with enthusiasm when you call it.


Then around age 13, your adoring little puppy turns into a big old cat.
When you tell it to come inside, it looks amazed, as if wondering who
died and made you emperor. Instead of dogging your doorstep, it
disappears. You won't see it again until it gets hungry ... then it pauses
on its sprint through the kitchen long enough to turn its nose up at
whatever you're serving. When you reach out to ruffle its head, in that
old affectionate gesture, it twists away from you then gives you a blank
stare, as if trying to remember where it has seen you before.


You, not realizing that the dog is now a cat, think something must be
desperately wrong with it. It seems so antisocial, so distant, sort of
depressed. It won't go on family outings. Since you're the one who
raised it, taught it to fetch and stay and sit on command, you assume
that you did something wrong. Flooded with guilt and fear, you redouble
your efforts to make your pet behave.



Only now you're dealing with a cat, so everything that worked before
now produces the opposite of the desired result. Call it and it runs
away. Tell it to sit and it jumps on the counter. The more you go toward
it, wringing your hands, the more it moves away.

Instead of continuing to act like a dog owner, you can learn to behave
like a cat owner. Put a dish of food near the door and let it come to
you. But remember that a cat needs your help and your affection too.
Sit still and it will come, seeking that warm, comforting lap it has not
entirely forgotten. Be there to open the door for it.

One day your grown-up child will walk into the kitchen, give you a big
kiss and say, "You've been on your feet all day. Let me get those dishes
for you."
Then you'll realize your cat is a dog again

How true! Although I have to say that some orphaned bottle fed cats are actually human toddlers. I got a mother's day card from Muddy this morning that apologized for throwing temper tantrums. If he doesn't get the attention he wants, he turns into a "terrible two".

Happy Mother's Day all!

You know you're a meowmy when... a kitten leaves you a little brown "present!"

I made banana-nut spice pancakes for everyone this morning. With really yummy Michigan maple syrup I got at the farmers market. I'm not a mom, so I don't get a "day" until my birthday.

Happy Mother's Day!

I am not a mom. I was feeling kind of sad about this, even though now is not the right time to have kids for me. We were at brunch and my SO's niece (age 5) asked why I didn't get a plant and her mom had to explain "because she's not a mom yet" and then there were the indirect questions about when we would be having a baby...

so, I came home feeling a little blah and what did I find?

My 2 kitties (Mattie and Chloe) both asleep together in a laundry basket, sharing the basket. They have NEVER slept so close together. We've had the two of them for 1 1/2 years and not once have I seen them closer than at least a foot apart. I've always hoped that one day, Mattie would become more tolerant of Chloe and it looks like we're there. I used to get so jealous of people who have cats that snuggle and groom each other, because none of ours are like that. This just really made my day

Being a meowmy is worth celebrating I think.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, MOMS

I am not a mom myself, I guess the closest I have come is my nieces and nephews. I have learned over the years however that Moms have one of the most stressful jobs in the world as well as one of the most rewarding. They certainly deserve this special day to reflect on that.
