Monday Morning Flowers with Handy Checklist Too!

Happy Monday Morning!

It was a busy weekend. Time to get back to the weekly routine.

Here's a handy checklist for you, just in case you need it this morning.

____ Lunch packed or planned?

____Teeth brushed?

____Cat/Dog/Husband/Wife/Children all accounted for?

____Shoes Match?

____Good attitude toward all of mankind in heart?

____Plastic Sticker that says Large Large Large Large peeled off leg of new jeans?

____Picked up Monday Morning Flowers from Betty Who Adores You?







Today's Parenting Tip: Treat a difficult child the way you would your boss at work. Praise his achievements, ignore his tantrums and resist the urge to sit him down and explain to him how his brain is not yet fully developed.

~Robert Brault


Happy Mondays, Everyone!!

Excellent advice. As usual, I jumped the gun on the conversation. Not even your three hour advance posting could stop me.

Ms. A said...

Not quite Monday morning here, but I'm going to take the flowers and run.

Have a great week!

SquirrelQueen said...

Thanks for the checklist Betty, there are some Monday mornings when I really need that.

The flowers are gorgeous, thank you.

Desiree said...

We always get such lovely flowers from you, Betty and today, a very useful checklist thrown in as 'basela' (a Xhosa word meaning 'gift')

The quote is priceless :)

Zuzana said...

Anne Gallagher said...

Thank you for the flowers, and the list today, Betty. Really needed the list.

Liz P said...

Your flowers brightened my morning. :)

Hrm, the good attitude might be tough this week but I'll try my best!

Mamma has spoken said...

Sounds like your Monday morning isn't going as smoothy as usual, mine either.

Teresa Evangeline said...

BB, Once in awhile I like to click on a widget and see one of your earlier posts, and although this is a fine post, and a Happy Monday to you, I love the post, "Decisions, Decisions." I've, uh, wrangled with this question, too, and after a life of Adam at the top of my list, Hoss is now looking better all the time.... :)

Catherine said...

That's a very handy checklist you made! I best hurry and get off the computer and get at it. But I had to come and pick up my flowers from Betty first to start my week!

Thank you friend!

I hate it when I don't get all the tags off something new. I hope yours was a Moms Day gift perhaps.

EmptyNester said...

Thank you Betty! This is my favorite Monday morning visit!

Lucky duck--they don't even make jeans in my size!

Jules said...

LOL, I once wore one of those stickers for an entire day. Thanks for the flowers, always brightens my Monday :)

A mother's work is never done! Cute list -- much different than my daily list on the farm -- but just as handy! :)

Your list was absolutely fabulous! Loved it! Thanks for the flowers! Beautiful as always! Have a fabulous Day!

Lydia K said...

Ah Betty. You totally bring a smile to my face. Thanks!

KLZ said...

I did not have goodwill towards mankind until I stopped here.

But I did have my teeth brushed. It's the little things.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Will you accept plastic flowers? And pretty sure my socks match. Yup, they do!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Betty .. love the flowers - bottlebrush, frangipani and the strelitzia .. beautiful .. and bunches of flowers everywhere .. and no labels on bottom of shoes .. and don't leave your child at the gas(petrol) station!

Fun - thanks .. I'm nearly through Monday .. but I'll remember the list for the rest of the week .. cheers Hilary

Liz said...

That top flower looks like it'll tickle me!

I LOLed at the pants sticker. They totally do repeat with the same word about a dozen times, don't they?

I hope all your boys treated you like a queen, BB!

Tracy said...

Hah, I certainly needed that today...I had an early morning meeting and I have written so many reports, IEP's on kids, tested, blah, blah, blah, I decided sinc eit was MY lunch I am going to read blogs from my favorite people...so here I am and thanks for the smile!
I guess it is time to head back to the kiddoes now!
The flowers are so lovely Betty; thank you!

Jennifer Shirk said...

____Plastic Sticker that says Large Large Large Large peeled off leg of new jeans?

Hilarious!! My kiddo likes to keep those stickers. Why? I do not know. LOL

Cheeseboy said...

DANG! Forgot the sticker. I've been here at school for 3 hours with it on now.

floweringmama said...

Oh my gosh, my boys love to take those stickers and try to sneak them on my backside! More than once they have succeeded.

Susan in the Boonies said...

I read your list too late in the day, having just conducted an extensive discussion with my son, in light of his as yet undeveloped brain.

DANG!!!

Note to self: always check to see if Betty has posted a check list with parenting tip before delivering lecture!!!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

I love my Monday Flowers though I am a wee bit late in commenting today, Thanks for sharing.

Yvonne.

Annie said...

Hehe.. check, check..check!

SUGAR MOON said...

Ha ha. I laughed out loud at the sticker on the pants. More than once I have sighed with relief when I noticed it before leaving the house. Cute post!!!!

Penelope said...

That is a GREAT tip!

Marlene said...

the flowers are great as usual....I'm going to have to show hubby your tips.....lol...he's currently dealing with a difficult boss, and I think those all apply!

Pat said...

Thanks for the handy check list.....but you forgot one thing......

head attached?

Ann said...

too bad I didn't have that checklist before I went to work this morning. Oh well I'll save it for future use. Thank you again for the lovely flowers

Pat Tillett said...

the only thing I remembered to do was to stop by and check the flowers! Thanks!

Susan Fields said...

I'm so glad I read your checklist and got that sticker off my new jeans! :) Happy Monday, Betty!
