What is a Mother

Well here I am again this evening to ask you all a question..
What is a Mother?....
Is she the woman... who after giving birth to you, has an uncontrollable desire to love & protect you for all of your life... to nurture & care for you... to give you a shoulder to cry on... to always be there for you through thick & thin...
Oh yes I hear you cry... that's exactly what a Mother is...
Well now do you want a laugh...
Late this afternoon we done the weekly shop... came home, had dinner then just as we were getting settled, me ready to pull up the crafty goodies etc... my phone rang.
On the other end was my friend who lives in the same street as my mum... where's your mum she asks.... not sure I say... hhhmmmmm welllll, the police are battering at her front door comes the reply... ok I say let me try her mobile as I bet the house alarm has gone off & before you know it the fire brigade will be there too... you see they have a great alarm system that is silent & when it goes off all emergency services are dispatched... last time it went off right enough she had hung some clothes up in the bathroom & turned the shower on to steam them... shame she forgot to turn the shower off... but the fire men were friendly at least.
Well there is Rob & I pulling on shoes going through the whole process making sure everything is locked etc & off we sets in the car... fortunately we live close so it only takes 5 mins to get there... awaiting me upon arrival are 2 young policemen.... I gets out of the car asking if it's the alarm that's gone off... only to be told no it was a 999 call.... shit I thinks as I throw my key into the lock bursting the front door open & shouting on them both... at the same time the policeman is explaining the call has come from a mobile phone registered to their address... on top of this mum is coming from the kitchen asking what all the commotion is about...
After everyone trying to calm me down before I commit blue murder... it turns out that someone has registered a mobile phone to my mothers address & when a 999 call was made from it they dispatched 2 officers immediately.
What's worse is that they were battering on the front door with their truncheons & there was still no answer... apparently mum was in the back garden doing some weeding & Eric had the television blaring in the kitchen but had also fallen asleep...
999 my bloody ass....
Now you tell me... do I have the typical loving & nurturing mother that everyone else does...
I'm having a good old laugh about this now & hope it gave you a giggle too ....
Hugs

Oh Lorraine that so sounds like my parents. I have had a right giggle reading your post but I know I shouldn't really.
I'm glad all was well in the end though.
