This mom note comes straight from 2004. While a lot has changed in the world, some things will always stay the same. There will always be kids who don’t tidy their room and throw their clothes all over the place. In a way, it’s comforting. But probably not to this mom.
Thankfully, she’s gone ahead and written out an easy-to-follow guide on what to do with clothing in varying degrees of cleanliness, and where they should be put. Did these kids learn? No idea, but this note is framed somewhere in their house, so it clearly had some kind of impact.
It's Simple Math
Every family has had at least one argument because someone took more than their fair share of dessert. This mom is trying to avoid this happening again and is a little disappointed that this now requires a written warning. Given that there are three kids in the family, there's a good chance that all of them have been guilty of this at least once.
They better be careful, though, these treats are going to stop if people won't play nicely. We can't discredit the theory, however, that Dad is also guilty and this note is equally aimed at him, not just the kids.
An Odd Display of Affection
Okay, before you start asking questions, we'll provide the answers. "Freddie Foo Foo" is the name of the family dog, and this mom has embodied him to bring her daughter this note, based on what she would assume he would say. So, to be clear, the mom has no plans or intentions to lick her daughter's face at Thanksgiving, or presumably ever.
This is a cute idea from this mom, even if the delivery is a little weird. Plus, the daughter enjoyed her card and her gifts, so who cares whether it comes from the mom or the dog itself?
A classic joke in a lunchbox note. These simple pleasures in life are the ones worth remembering. It makes the most sense that the child receiving this note is not yet a teenager, but we think even older kids would appreciate this note and cute joke.
It's also got an impressive illustration, and many moms on this list are clearly very talented. The joke itself won't win any breakthrough comedy awards, but it's a tried and true knock-knock joke, so you can't really go wrong with that. At the rate of these lunchbox notes, we hope the lunches themselves can live up to the standards set by these notes.
You Know What Day It Is
It's Wacky Facts Wednesday, people, and Mom is coming in strong with this week's fact. Apparently, yawns are contagious for dogs, too. Who would've thought? It's pretty much a medical mystery why yawns are so contagious among people, so it kind of makes sense that other animals also experience the phenomenon and we have no idea why.
Our question, though, is did this mom figure this out by yawning in front of the dog, or did she learn this information first and then test it out on poor old Fido? Either way, we imagine that there is a very tired dog in that house all of a sudden.
