Happy Mother’s Day!

13 May

Before I became a mother I was pretty hard. I could make it through (most) sappy movies without crying. Commercials were a minor nuisance and NEVER able to get any kind of reaction out of me, certainly no tears.

Since having kids I’m a hot, steamy mess. I don’t know if my hormones are so out of whack that there’s no saving me or if it’s all part of that fundamental change that occurs once you become a mother.

The other night I was minding my business, watching Grey’s Anatomy, when the commercial below came on. I like to tweet during commercial breaks so it took a few seconds for it to catch my attention, but it did. By the end I was near sobbing.

Am doing OK? Would a cute little baby have those things to say about ME?

Someday, when my boys are reading these posts (probably after I’m long gone), I hope they’ll know I did my best. I know I’m never going to win any mother of the year awards, but I’m doing the best I can. Do I want to be more for them? Hell yeah, but I’m giving them all I’ve got. When I’m long gone I just want them to know that they were loved from the moment I knew they would be coming into the world.

To ALL the Mother’s all over the world…Happy Mother’s Day! Keep putting in the time and effort. Keep doing what your doing.

Glad to know I'm not alone. Sorry I made you cry during nap time. :-)
