13 things about Mothers.

1. We are the only ones willing to kiss a dirty boo-boo and make it feel better.

2. When our babies are sick, we nurse them back to health.

3. We help with homework even when we dont understand.

4. We can mend broken hearts with a kiss and a hug (under the age of 10 anyway).

5. We know how to make our childrens favorite meal to a "T".

6. We can recite the time, pound, ounce, and day of the week that each of our children were born without blinking an eye.

7. If we had it to do over again, we would.

8. Our love is unconditional.

9. We attend every school program and sporting event with pride.

10. We do things for our children even when we are tired.

11. We forgive, forgive, and forgive, especially those of us with teenagers.

12. We can bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan (yep, Ive used this before but it fits).

13. We are magicians as we make piles of dirty clothes on the floor turn into clean folded laundry in a drawer.

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Ah, No. 3.... They start 'em early, too. Ms. Five is just finishing up with kindergarten, so things are still within the realm of Mommy-actually-knows-this... not for long, though...

Happy TT!

Open Grove Claudia said...

Hurray that you are this kind of mother. That's just really wonderful. And a single parent at that. You're boys are very lucky.

Natalie said...

anthonynorth said...

As a Dad of 7 kids, can't argue with any of those.

Hootin' Anni said...

I'm not sure about 'doing it all over again'....the pain, the pain!!!

My 13 is a gross group of funny advertisements I made up for fun, and using this week's 'gross' theme for T-13. Hope you can stop by.

I so can relate. And indeed we are magicians!

Meg said...

And unlike most dads, we know our kids' shoe sizes and teachers' names! Great list!

Harmony said...

So, so true!
Happy Mothers' Day!

Lori said...

I'm good with all but #6. I have seven children, which means seven labor and deliveries and I can't for the life of me remember exactly what day, time, pound, ounce or whatever for all of them (it's written down somewhere, but I can't find it).
It's more vague than that, "You were born somewhere in the late morning hours and you were born in the tub sucking your thumb. What day was it? I dunno, but it wasn't the weekend. I remember that." :-)

*shakes my magic wand*
*peers at it closely*
Huh.
The clothes magically get clean and folded, but they don't seem to be making it into the drawers.

Lovely list ... offered in a timely manner on this Thursday before Mother's Day. Hope YOURS is delightful on Sunday!

Mine's up at Small Reflections ... later than usual because it took a while to pull together. It’s been a while since my ‘happily retired’ self has thought much about such things ;--)

Hugs and blessings,

Robin said...

Great list - happy mother's day everyone!

Happy2bme said...

Your list is sooo true!! Great post!

#3 hits close to home. I used to understand that business about circles and circumfrences, but not well enough to teach it.

imadramamama said...

Chuck said...

Ahhh, Lori, that was so sweet. Good to see you again. Hope to come back soon - till then, be well. *Lov'n com'n your way*

My mother is in the hospital this evening, so I admit that as I read this, I got a little misty. I'm 50 and she's 70, but she's still my mommy. Happy Mother's Day to her … and to you … and to moms everywhere. (Thanks for visiting my TT)

Lori said...

I hope your Mom gets better soon:( Thanks for the well wishes for Mothers day. Give your Mom a big hug!!
