Did Your Mom Make You Laugh?


















My head spins at the rate time is flying by. Spring is teasing the yard with a taste of warmth followed by a bite of frost. But despite the fluctuations, our trees are filled with blossoms. Before you know it, Mother's Day will be here in what seems like the blink of an eye.

Stories about Moms have always appealed to me, although I'm glad my mom didn't document all the things that happened in our family as we grew up. My sister and I would be forced into permanent hiding.

There are sentimental Mom stories and poignant Mom stories, but my favorites are stories that make me laugh. And that's why I find Not Your Mother's Book on Being a Mom so much fun.

For example, have you ever thought of yourself as an open minded Mom? While that might sound like a good idea in theory, in real life it could be, well, a little creepy crawly. Find out what I mean when you read my story, "Open Minded Mom" in Not Your Mother's Book On Being a Mom, now available on Amazon. Click here to order or read more about this new release from Publishing Syndicate. It would make a gift guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of any mom, or any person who has a mom.

Of course there are no worries about my family having concerns when I write stories about them. They simply love having the world read about the most intimate aspects of their life. (See Paragraph 2).

I'll bet everyone has a few hysterical Mom stories to tell. What's your favorite?

Congratulations on your latest publishing credit, Pat! I loved your story, and I can't wait to hear what everyone else thinks of it, too. Hilarious!

Pat--I'm glad you and your sister don't have to go into the witness protection program.

I am looking forward to reading the stories. I'm sure the collection will bring me lots of laughs...

That is food for thought. I will have to ponder a funny mum story. Sorry Mother Nature is still being naughty. Hope the weather warms up in the mornings. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Jesus Christ. I spent most of my childhood scared of my mom and just trying to stay out of her way. I still hate talking to her. Funny is not something she's ever been.
