    Insulting and they can’t even keep the meter.

    As a side note, Tide has been used as dishwasher soap but P&G doesn’t make Tide dishwasher detergent either.

    It means Mother’s Day means having breakfast in bed … and cleaning the kitchen afterwards.
    (Ya know… some of us guys do know how to run a dishwasher and clean a kitchen!)

    You sure about that? I got a neighbor lady who says she has three kids—-two girls and a husband.

    I never will understand why the stereotype lives on. When I was in college we guys knew how to cook, do laundry, etc. It was a source of endless amusement that the girls who had been taught domestic things were beneath women had to learn them from us.

    I don’t think the poem is about college-aged adults making breakfast for Mom on Mother’s Day, Nab. It’s about little kids making breakfast for Mom on Mother’s Day. I made breakfast for the family every Sunday morning from the time I was eleven years old, and Mom always cleaned up after; but that was our routine.
    BTW Some day you HAVE to tell me where you got your screen name.

    In our house, I AM the dishwasher. I haven’t had access to an electric dishwasher in 27 years. (Unfortunately, I have to get up before my daughters, so I don’t get breakfast in bed.)

    knowing how and doing are 2 different things. But I agree with others a burnt toast breakfast in bed and a messy kitchen afterward is usually a kid thing.

    His screen name is known in the book of Daniel ( Old Testament) as Nebuchadnezzar.

    It’s more about little kids. I watched it happen this morning as our 6 and 9 year old left the mess for me (dad) to clean up after they made the breakfast for mom.

    What do you mean, they can’t even keep the meter? The poem scans perfectly. My only problem is that it takes a couple of reads before one realizes that Wiley actually has completed his thought — at first blush, it appears that he’s forgotten to make the point he was supposed to make, which was to thank mothers for being so patient and accepting of Mother’s Day offerings that are, shall we say, somewhat less than perfect. He doesn’t come right out and say it, but it’s clearly implied!

    Just think about it for a second. If your family expects you to be the perfect household-multi-appliance all year long and only does something special on this one day of the year for you – would you accept it? I wouldn’t.

    But ‘Dawn’ doesn’t rhyme with ‘pride.’
