This is a book I got for Wade and Noelle. Wade loves to read this book and tell me what I can't do. He gets a good laugh at it to. This is a really cute book, though.
What Moms Can't Do
by Douglas Wood
There are lots of things that regular people can do but moms can't.
Moms can't wait...to wake up kids in the morning.
They can't make the bed without lots of help.
Moms can never pick out just the right clothes.
And they have trouble keeping things cleaned up.
Moms can't have Yummos with purple marshmallows for breakfast. Only coffee, or tea, or yogurt, or bran flakes. Yuck.
They need a little advice when they're packing lunches.
Moms can't run very fast. (Wade likes to put that in my face.)
Sometimes moms can't hear themselves think (whatever that means).
Moms are not good at saying good-bye. Even to the teacher.
Moms can't push grocery carts fast enough.
And sometimes they need help opening doors.
Moms don't know how to keep salamanders in their shirts. Or toads in their pockets.
Moms aren't very good tacklers. And they can't make a basket on their own.
Moms are easy to squirt, but they have a hard time squirting you. Usually.
Moms really don't like to watch movies by themselves. And sometimes they need protection during the scary parts.
They feel much better with someone on their lap.
Moms can't let go of a hug without a kiss. Or two. Or nine.
There are lots of things moms can't do. More than you can count. But there's one thing they do better than almost anyone...and that's love you.
