This is the kind of note that every parent dreams of writing. It’s been who knows how many years since they’ve been able to sleep in, and their kids are finally old enough to (hopefully) follow these instructions. The terms are clear, and this mom has covered all of her bases.
What’s for breakfast? Boom. Cereal. Can I have a snack? Boom. One (1) orange only. Can I go over to Tommy’s house? Boom. No, you may not. If all goes well with this pilot, we can see a lot more late mornings for these parents in the near future.
The Rules Are Very Simple
We're pretty sure that almost every mom can relate to this note. You spend hours cleaning every inch and making things shine. She even washed the floor! So the last thing she needs is for those leeches — we mean, delightful children — to go and mess it all up. There's no doubt that Kevin and Molly were on their best behavior for a few days following this note.
We don't know if two teenagers can last more than a week on their best behavior, but they likely gave it their best shot. This isn't the only instance on this list of a mom threatening to punch their kid/s in the throat — was that taught in parenting classes of the 90s?
This kid told her mom that she was "too old" for lunchbox notes. Listen, kid, if you're too old for notes in your lunchbox, then maybe you're old enough to pack your own lunch and let Mom sleep in a bit. If not, suck it up. This mom took things in her stride, and let her child know two things.
One, she does not care how old her child is, they are getting notes in their lunchbox. Two, she loves them dearly. We're honestly pretty impressed with this mom's resilience and her show of humor to this insult! Hopefully, this kid has learned their lesson.
There's No Better Joke
This right here is about as classic a mom joke as you can get. It's not as lame as a dad joke, nor is it as funny. It won't offend anyone (okay, maybe the odd literate chicken), and your mom will tell it over to all of her friends at her book club.
We don't know how old the child was who received the note, but we're sure they enjoyed it enough to appease their mom. Based on this note alone, we would guess that this is an all-round sweet mom with a penchant for mild puns and cute notes.
Need Cannolis, Will Pay
This mom's note is actually for the dad, probably because he's the only one with a car. The task is pretty simple; take the money, move your butt, and don't come home without some cannolis. No need for please and thank yous, this is just business.
It's in the dad's best interest to comply and keep his wife (and life) happy. When all it takes to keep the peace is a few measly cannolis, it seems like something to grin and bear and not complain about. We're sure that most moms could be kept pretty content if they received a few sweet treats every now and then.
