Since it's Mothers Day I thought I'd share a little something I received in an e-mail. The author of this piece is unknown....probably because they didn't want their mom finding out they wrote it! :-)
How many of these do we "teach" our kids these days? There's quite a few in here that I know I teach on a daily basis, and after reading them I've decided that I am becoming my mother!
