O.K., I admit it, I am a huge procrastinator. Always have been, probably always will be, but somehow, I make it work for me.
In my defense, I do have (what seems like) 108 kids, O.K., it's really only 3 + a husband, but it sure seems like 108 sometimes. On any given day, you can find me cooking meals, washing clothes, writing blog posts, teaching letters, numbers and important life lessons to my favorite 3 3/4 year old little boy in the world. I make appointments, I handle business, I taxi kids to and from school and work. I am finder of lost socks, toys and work uniforms. I am a Mom.
I wipe tears, I hold hands, I worry, I hope, I dream, I cry. I mend torn clothing and broken spirits. I succeed, I fail, I get up and try again. I have good days and I have bad days. I have days I know will surely be the death of me, but I keep going, not because I have to, but because I choose to. I am a Mom.
I do what I was shown all those years ago. When I was acting like an ass a.k.a. a typical teen, just know I was still watching. All those times you wanted to give up, but didn't, I saw that too. All those times you stood your ground and didn't give in, Thank You, I needed that. I didn't appreciate you then, but please know, I do now. All your time and effort, was not for naught. I am the person I am today, because of the Mother you were to me.
Being a Mom is one of, if not, the hardest job in the world. You will have days you want to give up, throw in the towel and run away. You will have days that you will doubt your sanity (and your choice to have kids). You will have days that all you want to do is cry and hide in the bed, under the covers.
Then there will be the days that make it all worthwhile. . .
The first time your baby smiles at you, I mean really smiles, not just gas. The first step they take, without holding on. The first time they say "Mama". Their first day of school. Their first crush. When they get the lead in the school play. Your oldest son in his prom tux. The day they graduate high school (that one was huge). The day you see all three of your kids, getting along, talking, not yelling and (in my perfect world) unloading the dishes as a team, while singing a fun little show tune... something from "Grease" maybe.
Your Mom might not be perfect, none of us are. She probably messed up more time than she'd like to admit, but she got you to the point you are today, alive and in one piece, be it good, bad or indifferent, your Mom was there, so go grab her a little something to show her you care. It doesn't have to be much and you don't have to spend an arm and a leg to get her a nice gift. Check out Kohl's 2 day only 50% off Mother's Day sale.
