I mean, really…isn’t it lovely to know a person from his very first breath and watch him become a confident young man right before your very eyes???
There will come a day when you see YOU again. Outside of motherhood (I know how easy it is to get lost in there). Someone with interests and talents and passion and relationships. And, oh my goodness, you will really LIKE her!!
Moms, it is hard today. It will be hard tomorrow, to0. Different hard. But we really can do HARD things. And it is so GOOD, too. We just have to trust.
I'm pretty sure no mom ever had Teenager Fever...
Maybe if I’m just more prepared. Maybe if I start a little earlier. Maybe if I plan just the right back-to-school breakfast and after school snack. Maybe it won’t be a total shitshow.
I like to call the after-school hours spent driving every child around in circles to practices THE SWING SHIFT...and it is really taking its toll.
Nobody told me I'd want to fast-forward, pause, and rewind all within the span of about three hours.
