That is pretty funny. I recognized way more of those saying that I would have like to!

Happy Mother's Day!

So funny :) Especially the last one. I called my mom a couple months ago and was venting about some of Erin's recent behaviors.... She was not sympathetic at all--just laughed. Happy Mother's Day to you Lea Anne!

Hope you had a Happy Mother's Day! Are these actual quotes from your mother? She always seemed so sweet, I just can't see her saying some of these things! :) But, people probably wouldn't think my mom would threaten her kids either.
