Dear Husbands and Children of the World,
If you would like Mommy to have a nice Mother's Day, here is a list of things NOT to do.
Do Not let Mommy sleep in only to be awoke by the sounds of a child being "popped" for not listening (Especially if Mom is 100% against hitting) at 7:30am.
Do Not cook breakfast (including bacon) and then leave the dishes for Mom to clean up.
Do Not go lay down (because your back hurts) and leave rowdy kids with Mom.
Do Not "pop" the other kid because he is frustrated he can't tie his shoes that he only got 5 minutes ago at Grandma's house (it's especially annoying for this to transpire at the In-laws who agree the kids should be spanked).
Do Not come home from Grandma's house and let Mommy get lunch for the kids and then decide to "watch a movie" with son who is still upset for getting slapped only to have him come back downstairs 5 minutes later while you "rest" for another hour.
Do Not buy Mommy a gift you can't afford when you fail to respect her wishes and disregard her as a person of importance, it means nothing.
Do Not allow your wife to cook dinner and do all the dishes while you lay on the couch.
Do Not listen to older child yell that younger child just pee'd on the floor and do nothing.
Do Not allow Mommy to clean up pee and get new PJ's for the child.
I think that Mother's should at least be cherished and respected and while I love my family, I would like to spend next Mother's day with other Mother's AWAY from our families.
