Mother's Day

Being a mom means.....

dealing with a lot of crap...literally.

lots of hugs and kisses.

sometimes making the wrong decision.

saying, "no" billions of times.

saying, "yes" hopefully just as many times .

choosing which battles to fight and which things to let slide.

not eating your dinner until it is cold because you are fixing drinks, cutting up food, cleaning up messes or taking someone to the bathroom while dinner is on the table.

precious cuddle time and singing songs before bed.

not always getting to shower every day (gross, but true).

laundry.  piles and piles and piles of laundry.

getting to experience the joy of teaching your child something new for the first time.

sleepless nights.

endless amounts of people giving you their opinions on what you are doing right and especially what you are doing wrong.

making tough decisions and sticking with them.

being a good example.

sometimes having to learn a lesson from your kids. 

constantly wanting your kids to grow and stop growing at the same time.


being fiercely protective of your children.

being okay with putting others before yourself.

having a kid wipe their nose on your shirt at least once in your life.

being puked on, pooped on and peed on.

not being as grossed out as you thought you would be with bodily fluids.

loving like you never knew you could.

Happy Mother's Day.
