Oh Mother


I could right endless blogs about my dear mother (and I think I might have to start). While we have always had our differences (and still do) I have reached a point where I accept her as she is. But that still gives me the right to laugh, point and make fun of her as I see fit.


The Mom-ism of the day:

Me: Ok mom, well I gotta go. I want to get a run in before it gets too dark.

Mom: Oh, you run in the dark? Be careful. Do you have a light on your helmet?

Uhm... helmet? Mom, I don't run in a helmet. But maybe I should. Maybe I should.

That post LITERALLY made me laugh out loud, and then send your post to my own mom, because that is totally something she would say (in case she reads the comments, hi Mom!).

Laura said...

Okay, now I have to double-comment in order to add my mom's response when I told her it reminded me of her: "Well, safety first!"
