Motherhood is not for sissies. That is why we have Mother’s Day.

Motherhood is not for sissies.

That’s why we have Mother’s Day. Because we deserve it.

That moment when…

Your child throws up in the car in the middle of your road trip.

Your child out of the blue refuses to wear button shirts. For 8 years.

Your child hands you a booger.

Your child tells you his art teacher is evil. Then insists on it repeatedly. In front of the principal.

Your child keeps telling you knock knock jokes. They are so bad you can’t even pretend laugh. But she won’t stop.

Your child takes off her shoes in the car, and you have to open the windows to breathe.

Your child belches so loudly in the restaurant that the cook in the kitchen had to hear it.

Your child trips and throws the bug bucket filled with dirt and worms all over an unexpecting woman.

That moment when…

They tell you they love you and don’t know what they would do without you. To infinity and beyond. Better than their favorite ice cream with whip cream and sprinkles on top. To the ends of the universe and back.

That’s why we have Mother’s Day. To celebrate it all.

 

Enjoy this wonderful day!!
