Happy Mothers' Day!

Happy Mothers' Day
to all my friends out there!

We grow enormous, we get stretch marks, we give birth, we bleed, we nurse, we lug huge diaper bags, we change the smelliest diapers on earth, we rock, we sing at 4am, we grocery shop with infants strapped to our chests, we hold them when they get shots, we take their temperature in the pooper, we are covered in spit up, we scrub yams off the floor, we kiss boo boos, we trade in our cute cars, we push strollers, we say no, we say yes, we pick up toys, we count piggies, we read The Very Hungry Caterpillar 56,000 times a day, we clutch our cell phones in the movie theatre as we wait for a call from the babysitter in an ambulance, we trade our heels for clogs, we elbow each other politely at consignment sales, we chase pecky geese, we insist on broccoli, we stand at the bottom of the slide, we pull worms from pockets, we hug, we kiss, we wake up at 6am, and we *still* manage to want another baby.

Moms, I salute you!
It's the hardest job on earth,
there are no breaks or vacations or do-overs,
and no one else can do it for you.
We rock!
