Being a Mother!
Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you've had a baby
That somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother, "Normal", is history!
Somebody said being a mother is boring...
That somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a driver's permit!
Somebody said that if your're a "good mother, your child will turn out good,"
That somebody thinks that a child comes with directions and a guarantee!
Somebody said that "good" mother's never raise their voices,
That somebody never came out the back door just in time to see her child hit a golf ball into the neighbor's kitchen window!
Somebody said that you don't need an education to have a child,
That somebody has never helped their fourth grader with math homework!
Somebody said that you can't love the fifth child as much as you love the first,
That somebody doesn't have five children!
Somebody said that the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery,
That somebody has never watched their child step on the bus for their first day of kindergarten!
or on a plane headed for the military...
Somebody said that you can stop worrying after your child gets married,
That somebody doesn't know that marriage adds a new Son or Daughter-in-Law to her heartstrings!
Somebody said that a mother can do her job blind folded with her hands tied behind her back,
That somebody has never organized giggling Brownies to go and sell cookies!
Somebody said that a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home,
That somebody never had Grandchildren!
Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell her,
That somebody isn't a mother!
Now I hope that I have done a good job in my research to credit this beautiful piece to it's original source?!
