5 Incredible Facts About Mondays

Dear Kid,

Mondays are very interesting animals.

When you Google Monday, you find all kinds of interesting facts.

Like: “According to a study by Marmite in 2011, the average person in the UK does not smile on a Monday until 11.16am.”

I can’t figure out how they got to 11:16, but I find it fascinating.

Most of the facts I found about Monday are both depressing and questionable (like 11:16am).

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of Mondays because they begin with morning. An early morning. And they’ve convinced a whole bunch of other early mornings to follow them.

But right after the early morning comes coffee, which is when the day starts to get better. A LOT better (aren’t you glad I didn’t say “a latte” better?).

I searched for some happy Monday facts; they don’t exist.

No one ever did anything great without an occasional Monday. DearKidLoveMom.comBeing the kind of Mom I am, I decided to create some happy Monday facts. Since I’m putting them on the internet, they must be true. Here are 5 Incredible Facts About Mondays.

  1. Monday is the day of the week you are least likely to step in dog poop on your way to lunch.
  2. French toast tastes especially good on Monday.
  3. Diets begun on a Monday are at least as likely to be successful as diets begun on any other day of the week.
  4. Every great week starts with a Monday.
  5. No one ever did anything great without an occasional Monday.

Also, Monday is an anagram of ‘dynamo’. (I didn’t make that one up.)

Here’s to a Great Monday.

Love, Mom

Sunday, Sunday…

Dear Kid,

Sunday is an interesting day.

It’s either the first day of the week or the last day of the week depending on how you count these things. For some people it is a day of rest, for some it is a day of work, for some it is a day of football (at least this time of year), and for some it is a day of catching up and cooking.

No century (if you are following the Gregorian calendar) starts on a Sunday. Rosh Hashana never falls on a Sunday.

Today (for me) has turned into a day of grocery shopping (did you know that when you buy $200 worth of groceries you can’t really go through the Express Lane unless the lane you were going to go through is staffed by someone who REALLY wants to go on break?), baking, cooking, soup making, and football watching (although I didn’t turn on the Bengals game in time and missed the safety. Dang!). I am really hoping some elves show up to help clean in the kitchen but so far no sign of them.

You may be wondering where the name Sunday came from. Turns out there are a lot of etymological explanations. Unfortunately, all those explanations involve a LOT of words which I don’t have time to read (what with being the only one home to do any cleaning up in the kitchen).

Who Dey!

Love, Mom
