Mischievous Look at Motherhood

Moms are great. I saw on the Today Show this morning that if our jobs were paid we'd make $112, 962 a year.

Instead we make PB&Js, birthday cupcakes, and late night runs to buy science project supplies.

I've found that a mom's best ally is an awesome sense of humor. And really that trait is essential no matter where we are in life. It really is the secret to "hanging in there." So I hope you enjoy this slightly wacky Mother's Day tribute. I know I did.

Influenced by books like The Secret Garden and The Little Princess, Lisa Karon Richardson’s early books were heavy on boarding schools and creepy houses. Now that she’s (mostly) all grown-up she still loves a healthy dash of adventure and excitement in any story she creates, even her real-life story. She’s been a missionary to the Seychelles and Gabon and now that she and her husband are back in America, they are tackling a brand new adventure, starting a daughter-work church in a new city. Her first novella, Impressed by Love, part of the Colonial Courtships collection, is coming in October, 2012 followed shortly thereafter by The Magistrate’s Folly in November.


  1. That's the best Mother's Day video I've every seen!!! LOL!

  2. Glad you enjoyed it, Dina. It appealed to my sense of humor, but sometimes the things I find funny aren't... appreciated by others!

  3. Ha! Too cute. This would have been so helpful in biology class, lol. I love this line: "I took your blood and sucked it dry."

  4. Awwww . . . that's a hoot and, truly, very sweet.

    Thanks for making us smile. :)

  5. Funny and instructive, huh, Suzie! It just doesn't get better than that!

  6. Well, I'm glad I tried again on another computer because that was too cute to miss.
    Thanks Lisa!
