I Don't Care How Famous You Are...

I've been reading, Humor for a Moms Heart. This is one of those books you can just leave on the coffee table (or in the potty parlor) and read from it when you have a few minutes here and there. I have a paperback copy of this book, but the Google book version of it can be found here. I thought you might enjoy one of my favorite little sections from the book (pages 78-79).

I Don't Care How Famous You Are: I'm STILL Your Mother!
by Becky Freeman

Paul Revere's Mother: "I don't care where you think you have to go, young man, midnight is past your curfew."

Mona Lisa's Mother - "After all that money your father and I spent on braces, that's the biggest smile you can give us?"

Columbus' Mother - "I don't care what you've discovered, you still could have written!"

Michelangelo's Mother - "Can't you paint on walls like other children? Do you have any idea how hard it is to get that stuff off the ceiling?"

Napoleon's Mother - "All right, if you aren't hiding your report card inside your jacket, take your hand out of there and show me!"

Abraham Lincoln's Mother - "Again with the stovepipe hat? Can't you just wear a baseball cap like the other kids?"

Mary's Mother - "I'm not upset your lamb followed you to school, but I would like to know how he got a better grade than you."

Albert Einstein's Mother - "But it's your senior picture. Can't you do something about your hair? Styling gel, mousse, something...?"

George Washington's Mother - "The next time I catch you throwing money across the Potomac, you can kiss your allowance goodbye!"

Jonah's Mother - "That's a nice story. Now tell me where you've really been for the last three days."

Thomas Edison's Mother - "Of course I'm proud that you invented the electric light bulb. Now, turn it off and get to bed."

I've also come across Humor for a Teacher's Heart. I think I would enjoy it, too
