Happy Mother's Day From Unalaska and the Port of Dutch Harbor.

It's a Beautiful Mother's Day Up Dutch Harbor Way........
.........I've reserved a Table for just you and me Mum's!!

Today is Really just all about our Mother's So I am just going to keep it short and sweet today.
To my Mum above and my Grandmum bellow (Miss you Grandma!) I just want to Wish you The best Mother's Day Possible!

Ok. and Now to stop Crying I am going to share a fun little poem before showing you a lot of my friends, just a small sampling of the Mum's of Unalaska/Dutch Harbor!
I Want To Be Locked Up

(Thoughts from a harried mom, who is beginning to think some time in a minimum-security, white collar crime prison is looking pretty good.)

I want to be locked up
Away from everything,
Free from all the craziness
A mother's day can bring.

No planning, shopping, cooking
Three healthy meals a day,
Served up with love to finicky kids
Who throw most of it away.

No constant interruptions,
Dirty laundry on the floor,
Driving everyone every place,
Sibling rivalry (It’s war!)

No one asking me to do things,
Getting mad if I forget,
Me giving up my very self—
I’m the family marionette.

Prison sometimes looks appealing
(Or maybe the looney bin),
I get free time and three square meals;
With nothing to do, I win!

I want to be locked up
For freedom, time and such,
There’s just one obstacle for me:
I love my kids too much!

Yes. Doggie Mommies Count too!

Happy Mother's Day to you all!

thanks, I am the mom of two, but my own mom passed to heaven one week ago. It was not an unexpected death, but making calls to her friends was hard. Each older lady remembered me as a five year old and had a unique story to share with me about myself and my mom. I am writing these tales in a family journal to pass on to my own children on their Mother's Day.
Thanks for all the wonderful mom pictures

CB what a great poem thank you for it. Being a mom of a drama queen there are days I feel like that. Those were awesome pictures of great moms today. Brunch was yummy looking as always. I would gain 20 pounds just enjoying all the yummy looking desserts. Have a great week.
