Parent Bloggers' Network and Johnson's are sponsoring a blog blast for this one hundredth anniversary of Mothers' Day.

I'm not a big pay attention to me on Mother's Day type person. My potted plant from last year's mandatory church event died about three minutes after I got it home - and I even remembered to plant it this year. I don't really have an idea of how I'd like to be recognized for Mothers' Day so my submission for this is probably going to be a little sparse. Here goes:

The other day I got an email from my mother that said simply this:

I want a card for Mothers Day.

I answered this way:

I want eight hours of uninterrupted sleep.

She responded:

Laugh clown, laugh.

She's not getting a card, by the way. But only because I am contrary and don't respond well to being told what to do. It's genetic. Ha! This'll have to do.
