When you visit, I try to make yummies,
Meals and treats please your poor tummies.
But do I really deserve--
(Can't believe the nerve!)--
Your gift: Cooking for Dummies?!

I can't believe my mother in law gave me a gym membership, healthy cookbook and parenting book. Its just like her to remind me how horrible of a mother I am, all the while judging me on being fat and unhealthy.

[**Didn't really happen -- but I know she has probably thought of it. She'd probably throw some cleaning supplies in for good measure. Because, ya know, I am a slob, too.**]

Mother-in-laws always give neat presents,.... and the sun rises in the North.

My mother-in-law gave me a set of pierced ear rings.. When I told her I do not have pierced ears. She said proudly, "your wife does".

I can't believe my MIL gave me a book called "The Proper Care and Feeding of Your Husband." I despise Dr. Laura.
