Happy Mother's day to all who are mothers (or going to be mother's) who read my blog.
Here is a poem one sent to me yesterday:
Being a Mother
Somebody said it takes about 6 weeks to get back to normal after you've had a baby. That Somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother "Normal" is history.
Somebody said that being a mother is boring...... That Somebody never drove in a car driven by a teenager with a learners permit.
Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother. That somebody never helped a fourth grader with her math.
Somebody said you can't love the fifth child as much as you love the first. That Somebody doesn't have 5 children.
Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing questions in the books. That Somebody never had a child stuff beans up his nose or in his ears.
Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is the Labor and Delivery. That Somebody never watched her "baby" get on the bus for the first day of kindergarten. or on a plane headed to military boot camp.
Somebody said a mother can do her job with eyes closed and one hand tied behind her back. That Somebody never organized four giggling Brownies to sell cookies.
Somebody said a mother can stop after her child gets married. That Somebody doesn't know that marriage adds a new son or daugher-in-law to a mother's heartstrings.
Somebody said a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home. That Somebody never had Grandchildren.
Somebody said your Mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell her. That Somebody isn't a Mother.
