Behind Every Good Kid Is A Great MOM! ( Happy Mother’s Day )

Happy Mother’s Day to all mom’s out there!

F/3.5, 1/150, ISO 325.

Son: “Mom can I get twenty bucks”
Mom: Does it look like I am made of money
Son: “Well isn’t that what M.O.M stands for?”

Interesting Fact: In the United States, celebration of Mother’s Day began in the early 20th century. It is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a commemoration of Mother Church, not motherhood).[1][2][3][4] However, in some countries, Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.

  1. You make me laugh out loud with the M.O.M. joke. No joke, when I was in 8th grade I lived with my aunt (no kids of her own) – my cousin Johnny (also 8th grade) and I hit her up for all sorts of goodies and called Aunt Money Bags. Her name? Aunt Mary Beth. Thank you for triggering this memory on Mother’s Day … she was a 2nd mother to me, far more important than those goodies she forked over.

    • That is really awesome that my post was able to trigger those amazing memories. Glad to put a smile on your face. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your awesome story. Thank you again and Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

  2. A clever child indeed said this. I’d better hide this comment from our sons who might use this smart remark next time they need some money.
