Mother's Day isn't complete without this Mr. T classic. You've probably seen it, but this time, pay close attention to the lyrics and peel back the layers of meaning so that you can think about what the song means to you.
Thanks for the link, Whitney.

Something nice from Rhonda. Now, if you will excuse me, I need to go change my tampon.
The Images of Mother
4 YEARS OF AGE - My mommy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE - My mom knows everything!
12 YEARS OF AGE - My mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE - My mother doesn't know anything.
16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.
18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's clueless!
25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it.
35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?
65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.
Real mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.
Real mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.
Real mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of carpets.
Real mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.
Real mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' and get their answer when a little voice says, 'Because I love you best.'
Real mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade, but by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother...
Get ready for a beautiful collection of mothers. Some are from last year, some are new, all are terrific. (I'm not sure if all the moms from last year even read the blog anymore, but if not, hey, free advertising for them.)
If I left you out or your photo is mislabeled, let me know.
Happy Mother's Day. Thanks to all who participated.
