Hello Kitty A Mother's Day Story

Comment: 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.

I think the real thing to wonder about is if the kid used the chap stick on his face after using it on the cat's butt. You know kids'll do that sort of thing.

I think it's a really cute and funny story.

I used to ask my 3 year old daughter for a cup of water pretty frequently (she enjoyed fetching things while I watched the baby.) One day she came back so fast that I knew she hadn't had time to fill the cup from the spring water, and suddenly I got suspicious. "Um, where did you get this water honey?" Her face started to break out into a mischievous grin and I just knew. I said, "Did...did you get that from the toilet?" She started to giggle and said, "Well, yeah." Took a few more questions to find out that wasn't the first time I'd partaken of l'eau de toilet. She just thought it was funny. :o

Completely off topic, and I apologise for this, but your name is just TOO appropriate for what your little one did to you. My first ever YOMANK! (The name and the story, that is)

Are you sure he just died recently?
