The funny thing about Mother’s Day is that for some reason I think we mothers have some preconceived notion in the back of our brains that our kids will be angels on that day and that everything will suddenly flow smoothly. Only, I have never had a “perfect” Mother’s Day (as described).
I have discovered that Mother’s Day is a day like any other–and we get to be mothers on that day. We get to correct our children and put up with them as they tease the dickens out of their siblings. We get to love our children and hug them and yes, the kids do tell us that they love us and give us sweet cards. So, moms out there–don’t feel bad if you didn’t have a perfect Mother’s Day. Instead focus on the wonderful mothering moments that happen every day!
