Funny, Funny Mother . . . A Little Christmas Humor

For some reason, this little “story” that my Mom used to read at Christmastime came to mind today. Maybe it’s the fact that the holiday rush is officially ON and amongst my “Mom friends” (including yours truly!) I can already sense the frantic hysteria starting to build.

So this post is a chance to sit back and relax for a minute and enjoy a chuckle…or two. And hopefully it will also serve as a reminder to ENJOY the holidays instead of being a “Funny, Funny Mother”.

See Mother, Funny, Funny Mother

See Mother. See Mother laugh.
Mother is happy.
Mother is happy about Christmas.
Mother has many plans.
Mother has many plans for Christmas.
Mother is organized. Mother smiles all the time.
Funny, funny Mother.

Watch, children, watch.

  • Thanks for this! I vaguely remember my own mother reading this to friends (back in the day before email and such). She would just laugh and laugh. She passed away when I was a teen, and this brought back some happy memories for me. And now that I'm a mom myself, I can appreciate it too!!!!
