|My beautiful family|
|Busy church activities sometimes took over my life...sometimes.|
|Me on a much better day...|
And just about every neighbor in my entire neighborhood standing out on their front lawn wondering where in the heck the parents were and what terrible disaster had struck inside the house while those no good parents were gone who knows where!
|Mother's Day Story|
|I'll never forget the 911 call we had for playdough in the ear....it still gives me chills!|
|Mother's Day Story|
The next day was Halloween. Yeah. I remember trick or treating through my neighborhood THAT year.
|At Halloween this year with my 3 granddaughters....MUCH more fun!|
So I guess, time + crisis = humor, as they say. I can laugh about it now, but it was probably my worst experience as a mom. But as all moms know, there are a multitude of stories, almost equally awful, that we could substitute, am I right? I can tell you with complete conviction, looking back, it is ALL WORTH IT.
|Cuz look what I got!|
My family is the best, most important thing in my life. Enjoy them while they are little. It goes so quick. Happy Mother's Day to all who mother, whether it is your own kids or others, we all honor you today. For all the highs and all the lows, for all the laundry, the meals, the parent-teacher conferences, the doctor visits, the Scouts, music lessons, laundry, PTA meetings, sports, taxiing, and did I say laundry? ...homework you helped with and Birthday parties you planned. It's your day to shine! Happy Mother's Day!
|Love this kid. Even tho he was the Playdough pusher.....we all survived anyway, and flourished!|
The college grad playdough pusher.....yes I've gotten over it...it took a lot of therapy.......just kidding. Who could afford therapy?....I had good friends. And that's the best a mom can ask for. Don't ever think your worst days of being mom are not worth it. Because it all is so worth it. It is the hardest job. But it is the most worthwhile thing I've ever accomplished. Yup. And Halloween trick or treating is even more fun now with grandkiddos. And there is always this funny story I have to tell too......
