A Mother’s Calendar for December

A Mother's Calendar for December

Sure, Talk Like a Pirate Day might be fun for all of thirty seconds, but we surveyed one hundred mothers in the greater Toronto area and asked them the kind of ‘day calendar’ they would like to see. Here is the December they would all like to have*.

And, by surveyed one hundred mothers I mean I surveyed me. By ‘they would all like to have,’ I also mean me. If you agree, that is a bonus.

December, Mom Style

  1. Make your bed day.
  2. Eat what your mother gives you day.
  3. Put those socks in the laundry already day.
  4. Don’t leave that dirty milk glass in your room for another day day.

  1. I don’t have any children, but I loved this anyway! On the plus side, some of them work for a husband!

  2. Nov 27, 2017 = Laugh my ass off at this post day! My birthday is Dec 20th. Can I get a pass on cleaning my bedroom floor? It’s mostly dog toys anyway.

    • Keep the dog toys in their toy corner, everything else goes in the rubbish. Birthdays are especially important to clean up. How do you expect to get new toys without proving you can take care of the things you already own? Our son has a December birthday too… he’ll tell you it is non-negotiable here.

  3. hehehe You’re already getting a big head start on the New Years Resolution. But I suspect you’ll be extra motivated by then 😉

  4. The phrase “I’m taking an early (or late) December 17th today” needs to be in our lexicon. It’s a much more polite way of saying, “Stay away from me this morning or I will cut you.”
