Real Mothers

Real Mothers don't eat quiche;
They don't have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils
Are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors,
Filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know that dried play dough
Doesn't come out of carpets.

Real Mothers don't want to know what
The vacuum just sucked up...

Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?'
And get their answer when a little
Voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Real Mothers know that a child's growth
Is not measured by height or years or grade...
It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother.....

This is so very true. You are right in the middle of it too. Enjoy every moment as I know you are.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

I soooo needed to read this today. I started work today, and was stressing because the house wasn't just right before I left. The laundry wasn't done, I didn't have time to explain to my husband (the new babysitter) where everything was.

But I have a healthy and happy baby, so I am a REAL mommy!
