Happy (down under) Mothers Day, Mum!!!
Love you and miss you lots



I was out walking with my 4-year-old daughter. She picked up something off of the ground and started to put it in her mouth.
I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that.
'Why?' my daughter asked.
'Because it's been on the ground; you don't know where it's been, it's dirty,
And probably has germs,' I replied.
At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked,
'Mum, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart...'
I was thinking quickly and replied, 'All mums know this stuff. It's on the Mum Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mum.'
We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information.
'Oh.....I get it!' she beamed, 'So if you don't pass the test you have to be the dad.'
'Exactly,' I replied with a big smile on my face.

(with apologies to all the brilliant Dads out there!) 


  1. HaHaHa!! Very funny!!
    Your mum is beautiful, you look just like her.

  2. That was so good and funny and will tell it to everyone :0)
    You look so much like your Mum.

  3. Laura, you're very lucky to have your mum. It's the 30th anniversary of my mums death today.

    I wish you both a blessed mothers day.

  4. I laughed myself silly when I read the poem


I love it when you leave me comments, it lets me know there are folk out there reading my ramblings! Thank you, I appreciate them loads and loads
