my kids lie

by Kay~Kacey on 5/7/2005

I love being a mom. :lips: My kids, right this minute are out buying me a mother’s day present. They lied and said they were going to their dad’s…but they are lousy liars They always get me a birthday present, a mother’s day present, and a Christmas present. Without fail. And they are usually awesome well thought out presents too. Not some token thing. You can tell they really think about it.

For the record…they don’t do that for their dad. He gets whatever. But then, he doesn’t get them anything appropriate, or anything at all a lot of the times for their birthdays or graduations. He thinks it’s not a male thing to remember these things or pick out gifts. I hate that “it’s just a male thing” excuse some males use. :mad2:

One things I’ve taught my kids is it’s important to give thoughtful gifts. Even tiny little ones. Just something that shows you thought it out. For the record, my boys do well with their girlfriends…they are always doing thoughtful little stuff and getting them thoughtful little gifts. I did well. They over came their father’s male stupidity gene.

You know what my dad got my mom for mother’s day?? :secret: (no, of course you don’t, you’re waiting for me to tell you). He got her flowers with a note that said “Happy Mother’s Day on your 50th Mother’s Day. I think that is so cool and romantic that he’d even figure out this was her 50th mother’s day! And she adores flowers. My dad is cool. :cool2:

How fun! Okay, be sure and tell us what they got you on their super secret shopping trip!

Yep, I’m dying to know what you get too! And what a sweet dad you have. 🙂

My 3yo told me tonight (after they got home from a shopping trip), “We didn’t bring you ANYTHING, and we have to keep it a secret.” :love:

Awww, what a lucky mommy you are – and so smart to have trained them so well! You will have happy daughters in law one day.
