Have you seen the Faith Hill commercial for Teleflora?

She is advising a young man on what to write in the flower gram to his mom. He finally writes "Dear Mom, this year I will pay my rent."

What do you think?

Have you ever got flowers from your kids?

What was the best present you can remember being given?

Will you see your college students this weekend?

Do you have plans for your own mother?Have you given your mother flowers?

Do you remember a mother's day from your childhood that surprised your mother?

Haven't seen the commercial but sounds kinda dumb, jmho!

Flowers from my 18ds, no. Best presents are always anything he hand-makes. I might see ds this weekend, but finals start next week so I told him not to feel obligated as we saw him yesterday for a fancy brunch that I said would suffice.

I used to send my mom flowers; she's gone now. No, don't remember any memorable ones from childhood - we just treated hier to a meal out somewhere or for a ride; I remember my parents liked going to their parents' graves on Mother's and Father's days...

Haha....just got off the phone with my mom who said, "Someone sent me flowers last year...I think it was your brother...tell him not to send them this year."

I think the best presents from kids are always the hand made ones they did when they were little.

What do you think? I watched the commercial on the Teleflora site.. I don't know. It didn't really speak to me. I like the lame, sappy commercials, lol :)

<<The moment I really knew he was a keeper was when he went outside and found out my ex had let the air out of all my tires.>>

I hope your ex didn't do that on Mother's Day, Theresa.
