Put Up With Me
~Holly Giffers

I'm glad that you're my mother,
kind and caring and strong.
Coz surely no-one else,
Could have put up with me this long!

Ed: I think this one's my favorite. Probably because it's true.

Month of May

For all the diapers
that you changed,
For all the play dates
you arranged.

For all the trips
back and forth to school,
For cleaning all the spit up
and the drool.

Why is there only
one Mother's Day?
You could have at least gotten
the ENTIRE month of May.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

You Know Me
~Holly Giffers

Mum you know the worst of me,
My weaknesses and follies,
I know you've seen me poop my pants
and cut the heads off dollies,

You know all my most embarrassing moments,
You know that I'm a nut,
So what can I do to repay your love..
...and make sure you keep your mouth shut!?

Roses are Red, Windex is Blue

Roses are red,
Windex is blue.
Thanks for keeping everything clean,
I really appreciate it.

Ed: This is my second-favorite funny Mothers day poem. It's short and to the point, and I like the surprise that it doesn't rhyme.

You Love my Art
~Holly Giffers, insired by a poem on a forum

Dear Mum...
I love that you loved all my "art",
You told me it was beautiful,
You told me it was smart,

You loved my pottery and painting,
And my popsicle stick bridge
But don't you think it's long enough ago now,
To take it off the fridge?

Relax, Mom

As a mom you are number one
A parent who is second to none
On Mothers day, chores you should shun
For it is time for relaxation and fun
Even if at the end of the day nothing gets done
Just remember we will still love you a ton!

Please and Thanks

You taught me how to wash my face
And how to use the potty.
You made me eat up all my greens
And wiped my nose when snotty.

You taught me to say Please and Thanks,
Because politeness is the way,
So 'Please' can I borrow some money?
Just kidding. Happy Mother's Day!

You wash my prints from walls and doors,
For I am not careful where I play.
But here is a print you'll want to keep...
It's made for you this Mother's Day!

Ed: This funny Mothers Day poem is great for a child to give their Mom if they've made a card or a gift with a hand-print

From the Cat

I thank you for the food you bring,
and for my little squeaky thing.
I thank you for your friendly talks,
and when you change my litter box.
I thank you for the naps we share,
and putting up with tufts of hair.
I thank you for these things you do,
but thank you most for being you.
So as I'm sat upon the mat,
Happy Mothers Day from me the cat!

Ed: 'cuz the cat needs to express it's feelings too, right? And this is the funny Mothers day poem the cat would write if only it could figure out how to hold that crayon properly.

Nobel Prize for Mothers

Mom you are a shining star
Though the world doesn't know your name.
You have no fancy title
Like Baroness or Dame.

Mom you really are a star,
My mother, mentor and friend.
A Nobel Prize for motherhood,
Is what I'd recommend!

And if I won the lottery
I'd share my win with you
I'd take you Mom on a spending spree
Each day the whole year through!

You may not be famous,
As your face is known to few.
But Mom I think you are wonderful
And I'm so proud of you!

Ed: I think my Mom's still hoping that *I'm* going to win the Nobel prize somehow, but the next best thing is telling her that she deserves one herself ;-)
