Going anon on this one to protect the identity of my mother (81)

true story

just a little peek at a typical moment of a typical day for me

the conversation goes like this...

 

 

 

mom = tomorrow is trash day and recycle day

me=, ok, i will get all that cardboard out for recycle (huge pieces from the vanity i got delivered)

mom =   we should make a sign

me=  a sign for what?

mom=  a sign that says cardboard

me= i think the trash men can figure out that it is cardboard without a sign

mom= ok, if you think so

me = i think so

  • I think it's cute, although trying at times; laugh as much as possible:) Dealing with older parents as their minds start to go can be tough, hugs

  • Welcome to my world! My Mother called me while the baby was napping, she can't remember even after I have told her 1000 times what time the nap is. She asked me what day it is then argued with me because she thought I was wrong. I said fine then put on your TV since you have Cable & look at the guide. She said it says 12/34! It's not December! I said that's the time, what is the DATE! OYE VEY! She laughed & hung up!
