Happy Mother's Day!

To all the Mommies out there who:
- kiss boo boo's
- wipe snotty noses
- sweep up 400 cheerios a day
- step on at least 200 more
- realize that horrible smell in their bedroom is a piece of hot dog under the bed from Moses' time
- lose their patience
- get it back
- juggle 10 tasks with grace
- juggle 10 tasks without grace
- prepare lunch for their toddlers with one hand while holding their nursing infant with the other
- get up 6 times a night to replace a paci, pour a cup of milk and rub a wee back
- manage day after day on 4 hours of sleep
- realize, as they are scraping Play-Doh off the floor, that the wall is covered with purple crayon
- arrive to their meeting only to realize there is dried sweet potato on their suit
- cry because they just want a moment's quiet and it's only 2 p.m.
- cry because they're stuck in an office dealing with stupid people as they desperately miss their kids
- scour ebay for the perfect Elmo birthday cake candles
- can recite The Cat and The Hat from memory
- understand there is no better sound than the laughter of a young child
- well, except perhaps a completely silent house ;-)
- turn off their Gwen Stefani CD to listen to Barney because they love how happy it makes their kids
- and know truly, 100% what it is to love so deeply it aches . . .

Happy Mother's Day!!

We had a great day here that included flowers, chocolate-covered strawberries, Mexican food and lots of hugs! :-)
