Happy Mother's Day

Here's something funny--funny ironic, not funny haha.

Sometimes being a mother is trying and confusing yet unexplainably rewarding and filled with love. Sometimes, when I think back on my childhood and adolescence, I remember wishing for different parents [a different mom]--how could mine be so strict when those Dorans and Dewitts were allowed to do so much--like date! haha.

Now, when I look back, I just see the deep, wide river of motherhood with spots of heavy rapids and lots of rocks and stretches of calm, cool waters, and I realize one thing...

We're in the same boat now. :D

Happy Mother's Day to all you crazy, strict, eccentric, embarrassing, yet all-in-all loving mothers out there.

  2. Oh HAHA! Yes, we're alike in ways, but we're still different. The point being, it's okay that we're different, because no matter what or how we parent, we're in the same boat... and it's nice to have company and know that no matter what we do, our kids will think we're nuts and want to leave the house and do it their own way.

    :D
