Being a mom is delicious torture......



Well, maybe torture is a bit strong.
On the one hand, labor, colic, teething,
food problems, sleep deprivation, doctor appointments,
pre-school, mother's morning out, play dates, chicken pox,
homework, birthday parties, stitches, mud, pets,...
did I mention sleep deprivation?....
dates, driver's license exams, re-takes, attitude,
headaches......
fear, loathing, embarrassment.....
loss of privacy, grey hair,
more sleep deprivation......
Then there are those wonderful moments....
Iloveyoumommy.
Hugs, kisses, Mother's day cards.....
Like the one I received this morning.....
"Happy Mother's Day!"
"Mom, thank you for being the best mom in the world, for always being there for me,
and for supporting me in all my decisions.
Love you, Michael"
OK, it was all worth it.....
I mean it.
Even the sleep deprivation

  1. What a cutie!

    I heard from all my boys yesterday, and it was a great feeling. Now that they're adults and no longer living under our roof I can appreciate them even more.
