Seriously Serious


For all the Mothers who share mothering ...

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 you learn how to be a mother by instinct…
That Somebody never took a three-year-old shopping.

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 if you're a "good" mother, your child will "turn out good."
That Somebody thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee.

Somebody said "good" mothers never raise their voices…
That Somebody never came out the back door just in time to see her child hit a golf ball through the neighbor's kitchen window…

Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother…
That Somebody never helped a fourth grader with her math.

Somebody said you can't love the fifth child as much as you love the first…
That Somebody doesn't have five children.

Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing questions in the books…
That Somebody never had a child stuff beans up his nose or in his ears.

Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery…
That 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 do her job with her eyes closed and one hand tied behind her back…
That Somebody never organized four giggling Brownies to sell cookies.

Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married…
That 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…
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.
