Look what popped up in my inbox today:



The last time I was dangling like that I was wearing plaid shorts and scuffed tennies, my hair in braided pigtails, looking for a lost tooth on the playground.  I’m sure my toes weren’t pointed.  They didn’t call me “klutzy Kathy” in school for nothing.

So, is this is a suggestion for what to get my mom, or is Amazon thinking I’ll be dropping hints to my own kids?  (Option 2 is definitely NOT happening, LOL).  And it’s prefaced by “Make Mom Feel Special.”  What happened to macaroni necklaces, handmade cards, and breakfast in bed?

But hey, maybe I need to be more “flexible” in my thinking, so here’s a message for my mom:

Dear Mom,

Feel free to let me know in the comment section if you’ve had a secret hankering for pole-dancing lessons.  I’m still looking for gift ideas.  I’m sure Dad wouldn’t mind (he might even want to watch, in order to mock you keep you safe).  Maybe it would be even MORE fun if you can get some of your pals to join you, like the lady with the hip replacement…and maybe that other lady with the oxygen tank….

Love, Kath xoxo


So, what’s the craziest gift you’ve ever given or gotten on Mother’s Day?  Have you ever wanted to take pole-dancing lessons? I’d love to hear from you.

Wishing all of the mothers out there a well-deserved day of appreciation!

Until next time,
