"Your body is the first thing any child of man ever wanted. Therefore dispose yourself to be loved, to be wanted, to be available. Be there for them with a vengeance. Be a gracious, bending woman. Incline your ear, your heart, your hands to them.... To be a Mother is to be the sacrament - the effective symbol - of place. Mothers do not make homes, they are our home." from Bed and Board, Robert Farrar Capon

Guaranteed Entertainment

For hours of enjoyment purchase Kleenex in bulk.*

* Children beware, this is usually a short lived form of entertainment for your mother.  
* Kleenex Corporation is not responsible for any reactions this entertainment may provoke.


  1. Yes, I can remember my sister Amy doing this exact thing while visiting the house of a great aunt whom we had only met for the first time that visit.

  2. I loved watching the video - since it's not my child and my kleenex, at least not this time...

  3. This has probably been done by children since Kleenex in a box was invented. That makes it Tradition.

  4. Thanks for the smiles and the giggles!

    My sons took part in this tradition as well. It drove their father nuts! My attitude was always, hey what's the big deal? Their happy, their quiet, they aren't breaking anything and it's easy to clean up!
