Oldest Son comes home for Mother's Day

Oldest Son is living on his own these days. He has a nice job. He drives a company car.

We expected Oldest Son home for Mother's Day if for no other reason than his mother baked him a cake. You see, Oldest Son's birthday was also last week.

So we weren't surprised when the nice company car pulled up out front. But there was just a teensy bit of surprise when he opened up the trunk and took out something enormous -- so big, really, he was struggling to carry it.

Awwwwww, you're thinking, the gainfully employed son brings his mother a giant gift for Mother's Day.

And wouldn't that be nice?

Of course, it wasn't a gift.

He was struggling to carry in a huge bag of laundry.

But he did it himself.

At least he brought a sort of 'gift'...That he did it without mom's help ought to count for something

As a mom, I think that sounds like a great day.

Sounds like a nice visit at the Curmudgeon household.

At least he did the work!
