Advice on Mother's Day

Clothing Advice Overheard on Mother’s Day

(from Mothers Probably)

I know that this is something you’d like to avoid, kid,

but let’s not skirt around the issue.

Be sure you take care of your money, honey,

and certainly don’t lose your shirt.

When you prepare for a job interview, dear,

You should go dressed to the nines.

If you want friends around to support you, sweetie,

don’t ever be a turncoat in your group.

When asked, be sure to grab your coat,

and get your hat, dear, leaving the worries on the doorstep

It’s really great that you think for yourself, lovey,

I don’t want you tied to my apron strings.

And be sure that if you get upset with anyone,

That you won’t get shirty with me!

But in all, when I think about you as my child,

I know that I’ll always take off my hat to you.

  2. ...hmmm...no "or I'll belt you?"...I guess you could only say that when we were kids, huh?
    Cute piece!
