Swept under the mat like the Cheerio crumbs that didn’t make it into the dust-pan.
So this mothers day, don’t say something stupid (I always say something stupid) like “Thanks for being a great mom” or “You’re the best” or as vague as “Thanks for always being there.” (Hint: the mooshy fake poetry in the cards at CVS don’t count as your words)
Because stupid things like that?
Won’t score you enough brownie points to get extra extra-free babysitting nights from her.
