A little Funny for your day……..

Subject: A Day in the Life of a Preschooler Mom

> So, we had this great 10 year old cat named Jack who just recently

died. Jack was a great cat and the kids would carry him around and sit


him and nothing ever bothered him. He used to hang out and nap all day

long on this mat in our bathroom.


> Well, we have 3 kids and at the time of this story they were 4 years

> old, 3 years old and 1 year old. The middle one is Eli. Eli really

> loves chapstick. LOVES IT. He kept asking to use my chapstick and

> then losing it. So finally one day I showed him where in the bathroom

> I keep my chapstick and how he could use it whenever he wanted to but

he needed to put it right back in the drawer when he was done.


> Last year on Mother’s Day, we were having the typical rush around and

> try to get ready for Church with everyone crying and carrying on. My

> two boys are fighting over the toy in the cereal box. I am trying to

> help my little one at the same time I am putting on my make-up.

Everything is a mess and everyone has long forgotten that this is a

> We finally have the older one and the youngest loaded in the car and I


> looking for Eli. I have searched everywhere and I finally round the

> corner to go into the bathroom. And there was Eli. He was applying

> my chapstick very carefully to Jack’s . . . rear end. Eli looked

> right into my eyes and said “chapped.” Now if you have a cat, you

> know that he is right–their little rears do look pretty chapped.

> And, frankly, Jack didn’t seem to mind.


> And the only question to really ask at that point was whether it was

> the FIRST time Eli had done that to the cat’s behind or the hundredth.


> And THAT is my favorite Mother’s Day moment ever because it reminds us

> that no matter how hard we try to civilize these glorious little

> creatures, there will always be that day when you realize they’ve been

using your chapstick on the cat’s behind.
