Happy Mothers Day

How many of us moms have had visions of grandeur when it comes to celebrating Mother’s Day? I certainly have had my fair share. I dreamt of the beautiful cards, my children behaving well, playing with my hair, getting me the most thoughtful touching present a mother could ask for. The Reality is: “Oh yeah by the way, Happy Mother’s Day, can I get you anything?” Before I can even answer they have walked away. What happened to breakfast in bed with fresh pancakes and strawberries? I see it all over social media but where is my fairy tale story?

YOU are the fairy tale story. You have kids. Amazing, beautiful, funny, sweet, caring, smelly, rude, disrespectful and selfish kids. Every day we wake up to the most challenging rewarding career anyone could ask for, being a mommy. (Or a daddy doing double duty) Kids don’t always do what we want them to do when we want them to do it. In life I have realized many times that it is about the journey not the destination. It’s about the dirty diapers, first words, first kiss, first fight, first everything for our kids. We are their teachers for life and that is the greatest gift.

For all the mothers out there, Happy Mothers Day. If no one told you what a kick ass mom you are, let me tell you! You are all amazing even if under appreciated.

Enjoy the day!
