For all the Mothers....

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back
To normal after you've had a baby.... Somebody
Doesn't know that once you're a mother,
'normal' is history.
* * *
Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by
Instinct . Somebody never took a three-year-old shopping.
* * *
Somebody said being a mother is boring .
Somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a driver's permit.
Somebody said if you're a'good' mother,
Your child will 'turn out good'....
Somebody thinks a child comes with
Directions and a guarantee.
* * *
Somebody said you don't need an education to be a
Mother.... Somebody never helped a fourth grader
With his math.
* * *
Somebody said you can't love the second child as
much as you love the first .... somebody doesn't
have two children.
* * *
Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother
is labor and delivery....
somebody never watched her 'baby' get on the bus
for the first day of kindergarten ...
or on a plane headed for military 'boot camp.'
* * *
Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her
child gets married....somebody doesn't know that
marriage adds a new son or daughter-in-law to a
mother's heartstrings.
* * *
Somebody said a mother's job is done when
her last child leaves home....
somebody never had grandchildren.
* * *
Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so
you don't need to tell her....
somebody isn't a mother.

Just wanted to share that with all of my friends and family that have the honor of being called Mom! :)

***Also, please say a little prayer for my Mom. She is having her gall bladder removed tomorrow! We know you will be feeling great in no time, Mom! Abby wants to know if Papaw is going to the hospital, too!-haha! She's most worried about that! :)

About Me

Welcome to our life! :) Our life seems to be a constant 3 ring circus these days, but we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy every minute of it (okay...almost every minute-haha!) Scott and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we are the parents of 2 amazing daughters, and another little one on the way. This blog is a way to keep in touch with family and friends. It also serves as a 'year book' of sorts for our family. Enjoy!!
