Your feet stick to grape jam on the kitchen floor….. and you don’t care.
When the kids are fighting, you threaten to lock them in a room together and not let them out until someone’s bleeding.
You can’t find your cordless phone, so you ask a friend to call you, and you run around the house madly, following the sound until you locate the phone downstairs in the laundry basket.
Your idea of a good day is making it through without a child leaking bodily fluids on you.
Popsicles become a food staple.
Your favourite television show is a cartoon.
You’re willing to kiss your child’s boo-boo, regardless of what body part it happens to be on.
You’re so desperate for adult conversation that you spill your guts to the telemarketer that calls and HE hangs up on YOU!
Spit is your number one cleaning agent.
You count the sprinkles on each kid’s cupcake to make sure they’re equal.
You have time to shave only one leg at a time.
You hide in the bathroom to be alone.
Your kid throws up and you catch it.
You cling to the high moral ground on toy weapons; but your child chews his toast into the shape of a gun anyway.
You find yourself cutting your husband’s sandwiches into cute shapes.
You’re up each night until 11 PM vacuuming, dusting, wiping, washing, drying, loading, unloading, shopping, cooking, driving, flushing, ironing, sweeping, picking up, changing
sheets, changing nappies, bathing, helping with homework, paying bills, budgeting, clipping coupons, folding clothes, putting to bed, dragging out of bed, brushing, chasing,
buckling, feeding (them, NOT you), PLUS swinging, playing, bike riding, pushing trucks, cuddling dolls, rollerblading, basketball, football, catch, bubbles, sprinklers, slides, nature walks, colouring, crafts, jumping rope, PLUS raking, trimming, planting, edging, mowing,
gardening, painting, and walking the dog. You get up at 5:30 AM and you have no time to eat, sleep, drink or go to the bathroom, and yet … you still managed to gain 10 pounds.
Mothers we salute you, and thank you for all your sacrifice for us.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!
