As my family would write it.
Toddler: It’s great. You still put me to bed AND you let me eat honeycomb. I love New Baby. Even when I am trying to pinch him.
5 year old: You read me stories. I hate them but you still read them. I love you, Mama. You are trying.
8 year old: You never cook. I’m so hungry! Did we just eat lunch? (yes, and you told me you were full)
near 11 year old: Can holding the baby be my only chore?
Husband: What HAPPENED in here today?
Baby: Thank you for not shouting. Let’s nurse!
Happy Mama’s Day to all.
I would like to thank the vulture that scooped up the cat roadkill so I didn’t have to spend Mother’s Day afternoon consoling three of my children.
