I got this in an email today, and really :chair:

Happy Mother's Day/We have all had moments like this!

We had this great 10 year old cat named Jack. Jack was a great cat and the kids would carry him around and sit on 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 nurse 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 wonderful day to honor me and the amazing job that is motherhood.

We finally have the older one and and the baby loaded in the car and I am 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 butts 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. :shock:

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 butt.

OMG,I got this in an email too! I marvel at how I can have the same story show up in the same day in two completely unrelated areas of friends.
Hillarious story and something my mom fears. Reminded her of the time I had a lemonade stand with a neighbor girl and we didn't have enough cups so we washed the glasses out. Unfortunately we used a bucket and cloth from the garage that mom used to mop the floors and clean the toilet with. :teehee: Luckily she caught us before we sold any with those glasses.

So what have we learned from that? Don't lend the kids your chapstick :ick:

Love the story. Willl have to share it with my family.

When my kids were younger they make me pancakes for MD. They missed up the first batch so had to start over, then they didn't have enough milk so they used the chocolate milk. Best Pancakes ever. Now we have chocolate pancakes for Mothers day.
