What Every Mother Really Wants for Mother’s Day http://onefunnymotha.com/2018/05/11/what-every-mother-really-wants-for-mothers-day/ http://onefunnymotha.com/2018/05/11/what-every-mother-really-wants-for-mothers-day/#respond Fri, 11 May 2018 13:02:58 +0000 http://onefunnymotha.com/?p=8251 To be childless. It’s that simple really. If she’s been with the kids 24/7 for the past 2,190 days, give her a day off. Allow her one day of peace and quiet. She deserves it, and really it’s not all that much to ask. Don’t bother with the flowers or the perfume or the heart-shaped […]

The Biblical Story of Jesus and the Christmas Narwhal http://onefunnymotha.com/2017/12/21/biblical-story-jesus-christmas-narwhal/ http://onefunnymotha.com/2017/12/21/biblical-story-jesus-christmas-narwhal/#respond Thu, 21 Dec 2017 10:00:00 +0000 http://onefunnymotha.com/?p=8152 Okay, so maybe there is no biblical story of Jesus and the Christmas Narwhal, but there should be because the undertaking to procure a Christmas Narwhal is of biblical proportions. It all started out one night in Bethlehem. Actually, it all started out one night in Target. That’s not true either. It all started out, […]

And Christmastime brings out the craziest of their tendencies. They think sky’s the limit when it comes to their Christmas list. They’re sure Santa has deep pockets.  Well, I had to put a stop to that. Pronto. I mean I don’t mind them asking for some fantasy items, but when their […]

I was at the beach with my family, and after a day of sun and sand, I returned to the hotel to take a shower. I collected all my toiletries to bring into the bathroom, and it was then that I opened the soap case I’d previously packed […]
