over-the-counter-top humor to bring hope and encouragement to moms
trying to cope with the everydayness of life.
For example, after 26 years of motherhood I wonder out loud why
there aren’t more programs for gifted moms, who actually does buy those
whole canned chickens, and why aren’t more people using Diaper Genie
leftovers to weave large area rugs? I attempt to crank up the spin cycle on my
dryer and life to help moms cope with too much laundry, raising preschoolers
(on 12 hours of sleep per year), surviving teenagers, pleasing relatives,
understanding spouses, and the thousand other challenges.
I also wonder why the Institutions of Higher Learning of this fine land
never award their "Alumni of the Year" award to a mom? When is the
last time the University of Michigan announced, "Our Alumni of the Year
award" goes to Nancy Barbat for being a loving mom?"
Today all that changes.
This week Momlaughs is going to mail "Alumni of the Year Awards"
(8 1/2 " x 11" paper certificates) to the first 10 moms who leave a comment
at the end of this posting. Each of the ten also need to email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org to give me their address and the name of the
high school, college, or university that they graduated from. And may
I add my own person congratulations to you as you receive this fine
This offer is good until February 27 or until the first 10 posts occur.
