Motherhood is not for the faint of heart, but it’s been a good gig these last 27 years

Happy Mother’s Day, everybody.

Everybody has a mom, however they feel about it, today is a day to remember that. 

I was raised by strong women, so I won’t apologize – I am what I am. 

My kids are what they are, and I’m happy for that. When I think how we scrambled to raise them I can’t believe how good they turned out. It was like that episode of “I Love Lucy” where Lucy and Ethel get a job at the chocolate factory. Stuff just started coming at us, and all the sudden 20 years had gone by and they were grown up. I’m still sitting here with my hair sticking straight up and my eyes popped halfway out of my head.

Parenthood is not for the faint of heart. 

I’m letting my husband sleep in today, cause he’s a workaholic, and as soon as he gets up we have to do something. That’s okay, but every now and then I just let him sleep in so I can have a break.

I wish I could sit around and watch tv all day – at least a couple of hours of A Team –  but that’s probably not good for the dogs – we’ll probably go for a long walk in the woods later. 

Whatever you’re doing today, I hope you have happy thoughts about motherhood. But I’m not recommending it for everybody, so keep up on your birth control.
