I am my mother's daughter

Setting the scene:
sitting around the dinner table having just finished a yummy meal

Cast of characters:
Cottage Girl, the bro, Mom and Dad

Hey, Mom, what do you want to do tonight? It's Mother's Day. You get to choose.

Well, I wanted to play badminton, but it's too wet (it's been raining for 3 days solid). Or a campfire would be fun, but the wood may be too wet. Ooo, or go to the movies. There's a movie your dad and I want to see.

You get to decide. Whatever you want.

Um, well...let's go to the movies. I want to see Iron Man.


So that's what we did for my mom for Mother's Day.

When we got back from the movie:

Mom, you know most mothers want spa days and jewelry for Mother's day. But you want Iron Man.

I just don't like that spa stuff. No thank you.

Fine by me, Momma. I'm right there with you.

And Iron Man, by the way, was "flippin' sweet" as the bro would say. 4 stars. Go see it! My mom says so.
