Funny Foto Friday: Mother's Day

With mother’s day around the corner, dads everywhere are scrambling to figure out exactly what the kids will ‘get’ mom for the big day.  I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve (pine tree scented candle anyone?? Dipping my kid's hands in paint and putting them on.....ANYTHING??).  Fortunately for both myself and my son, my wife just wants a day to herself.  That, I can accommodate for sure.

So, in the spirit of mother’s day, here are a few funny pictures to help get dad’s creative juices flowing. Happy Friday!

The look of pride on this guy's face is AWESOME

Can't DAD drink too?? (Actually, I do indeed prefer gifts in liquid form)

So, while mom is out on her "day of mom" my son and I will be hanging around doing things that guys do.....

Living dangerously with my son while mom is out doing stuff
No clue what we were watching, I'm sure Mickey Mouse....

Finally, I'm not sure if this video will work, but here is a quick one that I took of my son "playing" on a lawn mower at my dad's house while we were back in Iowa. That is my voice that you hear and my dad making lawn mower sounds.

Obviously it wasn't ON, so no need for child protective services yet.  Well, maybe after you watch the video (with sound) you'll disagree.  Happy Friday!

That pregnancy announcement is pretty hilarious.

I would LOVE a day to myself for mother's day. My problem is the other mothers (mine and my husband's) whose fondest wish is to have all of their kids around them. Regardless, a large segment of my day is going to be spent running with friends or on a bike. Happy Mother's Day to me.

I'm hosting for Mother's Day. Since I'm constantly having to fight for a holiday (so far I've wrestled Halloween and Christmas Eve) I'll take what I can get, and none of the Moms want to do the work anyway. LOL Yea! Finally an excuse to buy spring decor!

I say letting little kids pick a present themselves makes for decades of laughs. I bought my mom fabric covered matchbooks one year. We still wonder what I was thinking.

I already got booze for Mother's day so I got that going for me!

I want a running hydration type backpack and for the kids and dad to do all the cooking for me, no not Ramen or something lame like that! Also booze is good too!

Love that pic - I swear it looks like my nephew, his kid and wife (sorry Age). On Mother's Day, I just love spending time with my family.
