Once again I'm pleased to join Her Southern Charm for Smallest Blessings Thursday.
Today my blessing is books. I love, love, love to read and I'm especially happy when I have something funny and/or encouraging to read.
This is the stack of my latest reads and I love them all. I bought them with my birthday money and they were all well worth it. :)
I want to share a little excerpt from Some Day You'll Thank Me For This: The Official Southern Ladies' Guide to Being a "Perfect" Mother.
You Might Be A Southern Mother If: (There is a whole list, but I just chose some of my favorites)
You know the route and schedule of every soccer/ballet/karate mom in the PTA.
You have an enormous library of small-format videotapes documenting your child's every move since your first sonogram. (If you are a Southern grandmother, you worry that Precious will see the sonogram picture and figure out that it wasn't the stork that brought the baby).
You know the proper technique for hanging and dressing venison.
You actually shot the deer yourself.
You straighten up the house prior to your housekeeper's arrival for fear she will quit if she sees how things really get some days.
You run into a friend and the first words out of your mouth are "How's yo mo-thuh?"
I love this list! I actually had a cleaning lady (many years ago) and I always tried to straighten things up before she came over. :)
