A Mother's Day Funny

My oldest son just called me on his way home from work to wish me a Happy Mother's Day. Heath is a Houston Fireman so he works 24-hour shifts. He said yesterday his wife sent him a text message around Noon that she had just got out of bed! Jennifer is a 3rd grade teacher and also manages three kiddos who seem to be involved in EVERYTHING. I don't know how she does it!

When I asked how she managed to get to sleep till Noon with those three kiddos, he laughed and said that she told the two oldest (ages 9 & 11) she wanted to sleep late and for them to be quiet. They were to fix cereal for themselves and their little brother and stay in the house and watch TV. I told him I knew they could do it, but what about that wild little 5 year old.

My son laughed and said, well, she didn't have any quality sleep, because the 5-year old kept coming in the bedroom saying "I'm hungry". Finally, the mom told him if he came in 'one more time', she was going to bust his little butt. Now, you gotta know this kid -- he is some kind of funny -- you never know what he will say! He stuck out his bottom lip and said "but Mommy, I just want you to get up and cook me some pork chops!" LOL! Sounds just like him. Mom may not have got a lot of sleep, but she did get to just lounge and relax in the bed!

Here is that little 'pork chop hungry little boy'. Don't let that little "posed" smile fool you but how can you resist that little "Eddie Haskell" looking face!

He is a clone to his Daddy, Grandpa, and Great-Grandpa!!!! It's really kinda scary because he acts just like them too!!! LOL! A pure Joy in my life.

Funny comment...and if he was going in that room around noon, it nearly WAS a suitable time for pork chops to be cooked!!!

He is a cutie pie for sure, but behind that sweet face lies a brain concocting all kinds of mischief no doubt.
