Food Morning, I mean Good Morning
Our habits all start when we are children,
be it eating, playing, dressing, likes and dislikes.
When do we ever get past that feeling of being a child,
when I am around my Mom, she wants to cook and bake,
as soon as you are up from one meal, she is planning for the next.
I love her to pieces, somehow I think she still sees me as a little bundle of
blonde and sunshine, I swear the next time I see her I may just have to sit
back and suck my thumb...I asked her Mom, when will you ever think of us
as over eighteen, never you will always be my babies,
now lets figure out what we are going to have for supper.
So I say, well since your daughter is almost 280,
we better have a desert, knowing there will be one,
she says I cook sugar free and low cal and suddenly the whole pie has
5 calories in the whole thing...oh yes Mom for sure...
She always has salad which is great and she can eat and eat,
and just a little itty bitty thing, and then she will say look at this roll around my tummy,
Just wait Mom, let me go get my glasses so I can see it,
Oh dear God in heaven that has to be about a half an inch,
Then she says what to do to keep yours off,
I plummett to the floor from a Cataplexy spell.
I said, Mom obviously it is not working out, I got a tire factory going on.
What are you talking about she says, Your just fine how you are..
I think to myself the heck with the eating,
if this keeps up much longer I just might have to start drinking...lol.
I don't drink because of my medications.,
Then as she has her head stuck in the deepfreeze I hear,
Hey I made your favorite Pineapple desert, and Sex in the Pan, and those Oh Henry squares,
I said how about some berries off of all the fruit trees, she says not getting my sarcasm at all,
Oh yes we can have some of those after we finish up these others.,
I just put my head down and said,
Dear God please give me strength to make the right choices
without hurting her feelings,
and please turn me back into a 46 year old woman.
I love her to pieces, we laugh a lot together,
No pies were thrown or anyone injured,
I did convince her to take 3 rhubarb pies into the Group home
so they could have desert at coffee time.
I am sure that saved me at least 5 pounds.
She is also planning for my next visit,
maybe in 3 months,
I think she needs to get a hobby
other than to feed her children.
She thinks I need to start baking,
you;;ll love it, she says.
Do you think she is missing the point.
Do you have the same troubles with your mothers,
I am glad I have mine, don't get me wrong,
she must be sipping the sauce or something.
ha she will kill me if she reads this,
so if I disapear you know what happened.
Be ware of ladies trying to feed you every desert known to man kind.
She will tell you they are all made low calorie,
Actually if you see her.....just run.
Until next time,
