Happy Mother's Day!

This is my Mother's Day present to myself from Junkposse. I bought one for my husband's birthday last week that doesn't have the heart cut out. She will engrave it for free. There's a link to the store on the right side of my blog.

My replies to Words of Wisdom on Being a Mother:

1. Somebody said that it takes six weeks to return to normal after having a baby. That somebody doesn't know that once your a mother, "normal" is history!

2. Somebody said that being a mother is boring... That somebody never rode in a car that was driven by a teenager with a learner's permit!

3. Somebody said that if you are a good mother, your child will turn out good. That somebdy thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee!

4. Somebody said that good mothers never raise their voices. That somebody hasn't had a two-year-old color with Sharpies on the white cabinets!

5. Somebody said that you didn't need an education to be a mother. That somebody never helped her fourth-grader with her math homework!

6. Somebody said you can find all the answers in a book. That somebody never had a child stuff beans up his nose, or popcorn kernels in his ears!

7.Somebody said labor is the hardest part of being a mother. That somebody never watched her "baby" get on the bus for her first day of kindergarten.

8. Somebody said you can't love your adopted child as much as your biological children. That somebody doesn't have adopted children!

9. Somebody said you can't love that sixth child as much as the first one. That somebody doesn't have six children!

10. Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell her. That somebody isn't a mother!!!
