Somebody who said: ..... it takes about six weeks to become normal after having a baby, doesn't know that once you're a mother "normal" is history. .....you learn how to be a mother by instinct, never took a 3 yr. old shopping. .....being a mother is boring, never rode in a car with a teenager with a driver's permit. .....good mothers never raise their voice, never came out the back door to see her child hit a golf ball thru the neighbor's kitchen window. .....you don't need an education to be a mother, never helped a fourth grader do math. .....you can't love the fifth child as much as the first, never had five children. .....a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing questions in the books, never had a child stuff beans up his nose. .....the hardest part of being a mother is the labor & delivery, never watched her 'baby' get on the bus for the first day of kindergarten or on a plane headed for military boot camp. .....a mother can do her job with her eyes closed & one hand tied behind her back, never organized seven giggling Brownies to sell cookies. .....a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married; Marriage adds a new son or daughter to a mother's heartstrings. .....a mom's job is done when her last kid leaves home, never had grandchildren. .....you're mother knows you love her so you don't have to tell her, isn't a mother. Drop her a line, giver her a call. After all, she is mom.
