To Get Someone In Trouble

My daughter asked my mother how in the world she ever raised 8 kids.

My mom said she doesn’t know.

In fairness,

She was probably so busy in the raising of us she didn’t have time to think about how to do it.

Mom went on to tell her

We were so stupid we would draw on the walls

And sign our names to it.

So in fairness to us,

We made it easier for her.



I believe there were some signed pieces of art

That were fraudulently signed

To getΒ someone else in trouble.

  1. Hahaha, oh Colleen! This was so cute to read, but also hilarious! My mum raised five of us and we drove her nuts, you must have been good kids πŸ˜‰ Also I distinctly remember very vividly getting a good telling off for my name signed on expensive wallpaper in what I was adamant was my brother’s sloppy handwriting. I think I was more mad that my mother would assume my own handwriting would be so awful! πŸ˜›


  2. I think the first stories I ever told were those in which I lied though my teeth about what my younger brother had done. There were six of us so my mum had to contend with trying to wade through lies on a very regular basis. She was better than a polygraph!
