Here’s To Mother’s Everywhere!

One afternoon a man came home from work to find total mayhem in his house.  His three children were outside, still in their pyjamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.  The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house


  Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess.  A lamp had been knocked over, and the floor rug was thrown against one wall. 

   In the lounge room, the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel…

and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing…    

 In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly ran up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife.  He was worried she may be ill, or that something serious had happened.  He found her lounging in the bedroom, still curled up in the bed in her pyjamas, reading a novel.

She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.  He looked at her bewildered and asked, “What happened here today?”
She again smiled and answered, “You know when you come home from work and you ask what in the world did I do today?”  “Yes” was his incredulous reply.  “Well”, she answered, “Today, I didn’t do it.”
“Yep I handed in my Mothers button just for today, but do you know I had all day to think and I started to wonder about what you do and what would happen if you didn’t do it, so I guess we are both V.N.P.  “What’s that”, he asked?  ” Very Needed People.” Hey that’s for sure and do you know what, I’m going to make sure you have more time to think!
