A family was out for Mother's Day dinner. The mother was unusually quiet. Her husband asked, "What's wrong?'
She hesitated and then said, "Do you really want to know? Well, I'll tell you: I've cooked and cleaned and fed the kids for fifteen years and on Mother's Day I don't get so much as a 'Thank you.' "
"Why should I?" he said, "not once in 15 years have I received a Father's Day gift."
She replied, "Yeah, but I'm their real mother!"
