What a great story - I really think you should look for an agent. That's one children's book I would buy in a minute.

Aimee Greeblemonkey said...

I love it!!!

Chaotic Joy said...

Hey I did it. My first ever Monday Mission. It's kind of corny, but it was fun. It's also on a similar theme to yours.

Chaotic Joy said...

Oh phooey, my link was wrong. It must have pasted something old in there. It links to an old post...can you delete it and just keep the second one?

Mary G said...

I love it, I really do. I wish I had had a book like that!
You rock!

CelloBella said...

That is brilliant. You must get a publisher! :)

Read it out loud to my husband it was so good.

Family Adventure said...

I second cellobella. This must be published!!! All the mothers out there will thank you...

That book should be published and handed out to all children everywhere -- like a kids' manual for what to do if mommy gets sick! :)

nomotherearth said...

Love it. LOVE.

ewe are here said...

I'd like to place an order for this book, and I'd like it to arrive three hours ago...

What do you mean I missed the shipping deadline?!

Drat.

On this Monday morning, I had no inspiration... but I had one from my archives that was perfect.

Such a sweet little book you have... It's PRECIOUS!

Beck said...

I needed that book LAST week!

Julie Pippert said...

Oh that is CLASSIC!

I feel for you, I do, but I admit to LOL a little bit.

Fantastic!

Get well soon.

(And I got my act together, or rather Patience got her act together for this today. LOL)

thirtysomething said...

Awwwww! Very cute.

Sober Briquette said...

You are a trooper!

This weekend I told my husband, "I don't think I'd know if I were really sick, I'm so tired."

"NO ONE IS SICK!" He said, as if he could make it so with utter conviction.

He'd consider this a horror story.

Kyla said...

Isn't that the truth!

Don Mills Diva said...

That is soo precious - it has to make you feel just a little better, no?

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

This was absolutely hysterical! I hope you're fully recovered now. I think you should submit this somewhere. Seriously. ;-)

Mary Beth said...

Oh that was just too funny! But oh so true. Do you think this should become required reading for the younger grades?

Blog Antagonist said...

Very funny! I'm so glad my boys are old enough to leave me alone when I'm sick. Even so, I still get disturbed far more than is optimal, even when their father is home!!

Jozet at Halushki said...

I would SO buy that book.

And I could sell it 10 times at day at the bookstore. I'm not even kidding. Perfect.

You get an A+.

I hope you feel better. I'll put down my drum, now.

the dragonfly said...

Fantastic!

I especially like the "leave mommy alone!" page.

Are you feeling better now? I hope so!!

Luisa Perkins said...

Take care of yourself, PM!

Sarcasta-Mom said...

This was a little harder than I thought, but at least I did it this week :)

Thanks for the Mission!

Aliki2006 said...

That sounds like just the kind of book WE need to have around--I love it!

Rima said...

You are one funny mama, PM! And awesome penmanship, especially for a sick person!

Victoria said...

I would totally buy that book from the school book fair!

Clever! =)

alejna said...

I think you're book could be a best-seller. I hope you feel better.

And you've once more tempted me to write a Monday Mission. And you may be sorry...

slouching mom said...

PM! This is PRICELESS!

Wayfarer Scientista said...

wow - that is absolutely fabulous! When are you publishing??

JCK said...

Hot damn! You are one creative, sickie. Man!

MamaGeek said...

If THAT doesn't make you feel better, nothing will.

girlymom said...

Oh please have that book published- quickly!!

Queeny said...

How much you selling that for? We need a few copies over here.

So cute. (Did the kids help?)

Hope you're feeling better.

Jennifer said...

FAN.TASTIC!! Let me know when you're published -- I'll by three copies, one for each of my kids, please. LOVE it!

Bayou Belle said...

If you don't publish that dang thing at least laminate and keep it for Maypole!

niobe said...

great story! With an important moral.

Maddy said...

No submission I'm afraid, but great nonetheless.
Cheers

Angela said...

I needed that book this week!!!!!

Kathryn said...

That is perfect! Will you be publishing that book anytime soon? I think all of the mommies out there could use it.

Mad Hatter said...

Brilliant!!!! And this from an expert in the field.

Can someone tell me how I blinked and was 5 posts behind in your blog. I am not cut out for the pace of life in the blogosphere. Still, it was great fun getting caught up. I hope you are feeling better.
