    With Mother’s Day coming up this Sunday I thought you might enjoy this funny story that was sent to me…

    So, we had this great 10 year old cat named Jack who just recently
    died. Jack was a great cat and the kids would carry him around and sit
    on him and nothing ever bothered him. He used to hang out and nap all
    day long on this mat in our bathroom.

    Well we have 3 kids and at the time of this story they were 4 years old,
    3 years old and 1 year old. The middle one is Eli. Eli really loves
    chapstick. LOVES it. He kept asking to use my chapstick and then
    losing it. So finally one day I showed him where in the bathroom I keep
    my chapstick and how he could use it whenever he wanted to but he needed
    to put it right back in the drawer when he was done.

    Last year on Mother's Day, we were having the typical rush around and
    try to get ready for Church with everyone crying and carrying on. My
    two boys are fighting over the toy in the cereal box. I am trying to
    nurse my little one at the same time I am putting on my make-up.
    Everything is a mess and everyone has long forgotten that this is a
    wonderful day to honor me and the amazing job that is motherhood.

    We finally have the older one and the baby loaded in the car and I am
    looking for Eli. I have searched everywhere and I finally round the
    corner to go into the bathroom. And there was Eli. He was applying my
    chapstick very carefully to Jack's . . . rear end. Eli looked right
    into my eyes and said "chapped." Now if you have a cat, you know that
    he is right--their little butts do look pretty chapped. And, frankly,
    Jack didn't seem to mind.

    And the only question to really ask at that point was whether it was
    the FIRST time Eli had done that to the cat's behind or the hundredth.

    And THAT is my favorite Mother's Day moment ever because it reminds us
    that no matter how hard we try to civilize these glorious little
    creatures, there will always be that day when you realize they've been
    using your chapstick on the cat's butt.

    Have a happy and relaxing Mother’s Day! :wink:
