Mother's Day Reminiscing

Dear Vinyl Lover's -

We know each and every one of us have funny stories around the Holidays, and Mother's usually have carte blanche on wonderful stories! Well, we can't just have these fabulous tales lying around untold, so let's have a contest, shall we? Post your favorite, most comical Motherly story below! We will select 5 winners to receive FREE TRANSFER TAPE! Contest ends Wednesday, May 18 at Midnight MST.

Happy Vinyl-ing!


  1. I guess my story really isn't funny but the year before I became a mom(through the wonder of adoption!!), my husband and I were planting flowers. I had taken a flat of flowers out of the back of the truck, started walking backward, tripped over a flower pot, fell - flowers went flying and I went down. Off to the ER we went. I had a broken shoulder!! Luckily this happened on the Mother's Day before I was a mom - I couldn't imagine having a broken shoulder and a baby!! This year we were looking at flowers but my 8 year old said that we couldn't get any because she didn't want me to break my shoulder again!


  2. Great contest - unfortunately the kids have forgotten the last few years and are a day or too late to say Happy Mothers Day (just because I say don't give me flowers cuz they will wilt & die doesn't mean you can't make me something or something useful, even papertowels (cuz I will use them up). Hmmm, wait until they have their own kids (1 does)and they are old enough to know what day it is and see what their kids do).

  3. Four years ago my Granddaughter who was 6 at the time woke up on Christmas morning. She was so happy to start opening her presents.. First one from Santa, then one from Mom and Dad.. She was so excited and said "I am so happy Santa buys his wrapping paper at the same store you do Mommy". All the adults just looked at each other and laughed.. We have been very careful since then to buy a couple of rolls of wrapping paper for "Santa's" packages only...

  4. The one story I remember the best is my mom told us not to bring extra food over because she had made enough for everybody. I said ok and passed along the word! We started to eat, and I kept thinking, Man, she sure doesn't have much here, I should have made a salad or something. We were just about done eating and all of a sudden she jumps up and says, "Why didn't you remind me to get the beans out of the microwave", and " buns and ribs out of the oven"!!!!! I mean, come on... I didn't even know they were there..LOL.. she felt really stupid after that, and forgot she made apple pie too cause she was too embarrest. OH well. we got it and we ended up being really full..

  5. My kids bought me a giant card they picked out this year, and gave me flowers. It was really sweet. They are 3 and 4, so it was the first year they kind of "got it". My hubby even got me a Joanns gift card! That is an improvement on his part!

  6. Well when I was learning to drive my mom was with me. I had a 1981 Chevy Chevette - no power anything..... My mom told me that I had to have the oil changed before we could do anything else.
    So she made me drive to the oil change place to have the oil changed, yes you know those ones you drive over the little hole in the ground...
    Well my mom was telling me one thing, the guy was telling me to turn the other way and I just couldn't get it to turn quick enough. Oh, yes you guessed it. I DROVE RIGHT INTO THE PIT.
    I was sobbing uncontrollably - my mom was laughing hysterically. My mom while still laughing was a little concerned about how they were going to get the car out of the pit. The guy directing me told the guys – yep we have another newbie here. Need to a pullout. (What?) I looked at my mom and the 3 guys picked up the front end of the car moved it over about 2 feet and then proceeded to do the oil change.

    My mom still laughing, me still crying – told her “I’m never driving that again”. She looked at me and said, “Well, I guess you’ll be walking the rest of your life”. She gave me a vote of confident to get back in the car drive, again.

    Thanks for the chance to win. I love my mom and am thankful for her!!!

  7. I don't really have a comical or funny mother's day story... I just remember that the father of my children was really not into special days and so he didn't remind them or do anything special for me... .so instead of feeling sorry for myself, I just made sure that we did special things for his mother and my mother. We would invite them over for a BBQ (at least he did the BBQ part! lol) and I would make it a special day for them which in turn made it special for me and I didn't have time to sit around and feel sorry for myself! :) So it was a win win situation! :) :) :) :) Thanks for the opportunity to win!! Both my mother and mother in law are gone now but I have very fond memories of them both!

  8. Not a Mother's day story per se but one of those fun moments in mothering.
    I re-posted a saying a few days ago on FB that I thought was very thought provoking. It was what if you woke up tomorrow with only the things you thanked God for today. I shared this with my son over lunch and I said, "Doesn't that make you think?" His response, "I'd have a lot of food". lol! Truly the way to a teenage boy's heart IS through his stomach!
    Thanks for your great store, web site, and blog!

  9. I have a hard time keeping my kids names straight (what mom doesn't) however this has been compounded because my oldest (4 yr old) has decided that her name is Rapunzel - at least for today a couple of days ago it was sleeping beauty - no one knows what it will be tomorrow and the best part? She only responds to what her name is that day - if you call her by her real name you get a lecture on what her name "really" is :) I love being a mom and the joys it brings :)

  10. My hubs works out of town all the time. So if he's home on holidays its a treat. He makes it the best possible even when he can't be here. This year on Mother's Day, (of course he wasnt home)every time he called he yelled "Happy Mother's Day". After about the 5th call I asked him was he going to keep doing that and he said its Mother's Day all day isnt it. I just laughed..... I love that man!!!!!
