Today is a VERY special day, a day that we recognize ALL of the amazing mamas out there.
To the moms who have worked their butts off, to the moms who have loved, laughed, and lost. To the mamas who put everyone before them, who give it their ALL … to the mamas who eat dinner last, drink ice cold coffee … and sneak chocolate in the pantry.
To the mamas who managed to get a good night’s sleep and to those who are running on fumes. To the mamas who put band-aids on scraped knees and wipe away big crocodile tears. To the mamas that read 10 books before bedtime and still manage to squeeze a glass (or bottle!) of wine in and get up and do it all over again the next morning.
To those who have always dreamed of becoming a mama, we are all thinking of you and sending our fairy baby-making dust your way … but gently reminding you to be patient with yourself and enjoy your sleep (while you can!) … to the mamas out there who have 5 children, twins, or an only child … to the mamas who loved the hospital underwear so much that they stocked up when heading home.
To MY mom, to my aunts and cousins … and the future mamas out there, (Steph, you’re in for one hell of a ride!). Thank you for everything you do, and Happy Mother’s Day!
