Random Funny Things My Mom says - Part 9

Conversation with my Mom

Mom - Happy Birthday! Ok, where's my Mother's Day present?

Me - Mother's day? That's not til next month, isn't it?

Mom - Waaa? How can you forget? Your birthday is also My Mother's Day! I carried you for 9 difficult months, went through 24 hours of the worst labor pains that I can still remember clearly 40 years later, all with no pain relief. This is more my day than yours!

Me - You're right. Happy Mother's Day.

Mom - Good, now give me my Mother's day present.

I give her a big hug and kiss.

Mom - Happy Birthday my biggest baby.

Me - Hey, that means I get to have Mother's Day an extra 3 times a year.

Mom - You had an epidural all 3 times. Not the same.

Me - Darn!

It's nice having my folks around on my birthday!

Herro, Ellen

I'm not sure if you got this already, and if you have please accept another; but I presented you with the Stylish Blogger Award because I think you're incredible!

If you have time, stop on by and celebrate!

LoL, your mom is so cute! (and hey, she has a point about how hard she labored (oh! and my horrible puns rear their ugly heads!) to bring you into the world) But in any case, Happy Birthday! I surfed in on Marie Lu's #FF tweet and wanted to congratulate you on getting published!

Incidentally, I'm also an AA gal writing YA fantasy (though just starting out--haven't even finished the book yet ^^;; ). It's so cool to see more YA Fantasy hitting the shelves. Is yours a more traditional/European type of fantasy, or one that draw from Eastern mythology like Cindy Pon's work? Are you allowed to say?
