Garden Mums

Drove by a sign that read:

Garden mums now in stock

The 10-year-old son asks me,

Mom, what’s a ‘mum’?

It’s short for chrysanthemum. It’s a flower. The word sometimes gets shortened to ‘mum’.

Ooohhhh. (pause) I thought it was like a garden gnome. Except you know instead of a gnome it was a mom.

Garden Mom

Garden Mom

Now I think I want one.

  1. It’s genetic. When I read the title, I thought you were talking about motherly gardening gnomes too.

    I don’t want one, though.
