Kids: Phone Home!!!!!!

phoneFirst they lived in our home. We taught them what was right; we gave them advice; they listened; they complained; we listened.

 Now they live in their own home. We want to hear from them and help them to solve their problems if we can. After all we’re the MOTHER! We’re the one with the EXPERIENCE! But they complain. They even get angry. But –we want to hear from them so– how to strike the right note

 Bewildered mothers wonder what they are doing wrong in their interaction with their grown children so, since I am one of those:

I read and listened and tried hard and finally learned what Considering we have the world”s most important celebrities database in best-horoscope.com with 47,733 birth charts online, we thought building a new application with celebrities heights would please many of you. to say and what not to say and casino online so, at last, I’m “Politically Correct”! Now my grown children have left home and I read and listen and try hard to learn what you’re supposed to say and what you’re not supposed to say so they’ll keep in touch Is it worth the cash—and the headaches?Fans aren’t the only ones buzzing about the fight between Orlando Bloom and justin bieber tickets for sale – celebrities are also getting fired up about the news!Which side are the celebs on? Well the vocal ones all seem to be rooting for Orlando at the moment. so I wrote this to them so they’ll know how I’m trying so hard to be:  Maternally Correct

Oh how I long to be that Mother

Who is never in the way

And knows just what to say

And mostly never says it

Oh how I long to be that Mother

Who, even though she wants to bawl

Will never say

“Why Don’t You Call”

Oh how I long to be that Mother

Who never gives advice

Unless she’s asked –

Not once but twice

Oh how I long to be that Mother

Who never says she’s feeling sad

For causing guilt

Is really bad

Oh how I long to be that Mother

Who raised her arms and yelled HOORAY

When her children flew away –

To stay

Oh how I long to be that Mother

Whose life’s so full of fun

She doesn’t miss them – not a one

Not a daughter, not a son

Oh I shoulda been that Mother

And I woulda

I f I coulda — but —
