Mother's Day Coupons Get Real

On Wednesday mornings I volunteer at Joe's school and today I was hanging out in the office putting packets together. A kindergarten teacher was making Mother's Day coupons for her students to fill out and give for presents. They were to get five coupons and needed to come up with a different offer for each.

"What do you think?" she asked. "Hugs? Kisses? Drawings?"

Well, those things are great, but I get them every day. Naturally I started to think about what I'd want if those coupons were somehow to come to me.... here's my five:
1. Clothes in hamper (as opposed to floor) for a whole week

2. Ten toys picked up and put away before bed for two nights in a row

3. One made bed three mornings in a row

4. A whole day without ANY whining (good for one time only) *I'm a realist*

5. An attention span longer than two minutes (for two minutes) *again, I'm a realist*

What do you want?


  1. When my children were small, they're Mom had passed on, and the teachers would make HAPPY MOTHER's DAY DAD cards for me, it was sweet, and all I would ever want coupons for would be hugs and kisses!

  2. Well Rey, Hugs and kisses ARE awesome, but IMAGINE a day without whining.... Just. Imagine. :-)

  3. At first I started to laugh but as I continue to read, I find my self not only laughing but saying out loud Omg, Yes !!
    I feel you, I get it ... lol
