I know it is not Mother’s Day yet but for every mother on earth everyday is a mother’s day. My husband tells me every time how he appreciates me for what I am doing. For giving up some things important to me personally and making a choice to become a stay-at-home-mom. He knows that it took me some time to get over the idea of pausing my life as a Med-Tech and to replace my lab coat with an apron. This blog has been my outlet for everything and anything my mind is allowed to dwell on. I am perfectly convinced that being a mother is one of the things I am not good at. With the kids being the way they are, my husband always praise me and tells me I am doing fine. Last night, I was telling him how other moms make motherhood looks easy as turning the light switch on and off and he replied by telling me this:
“It is not easy, it is the hardest, most underpaid job on Earth. Anyone who signed up for this job is crazy!!!!”
I sarcastically replied back with “so you think I am crazy!”
“NO, what I mean is, the reason why MEN aren’t called mothers because being a husband is like another child for mothers to raise…that is why it is crazy”
I still don’t get the logic of it but it sure made me smile. "Whatever!” and “Of course!” were always my reply when I can’t support an argument or conversations that I know would contribute to stress.
Thinking about what he said, I went searching for quotes and I will offer this to all the moms in the world!
In relation with what my husband said… this one surely made sense!! Yeah right! Moms are smarter!
Of course! That is why moms are smarter!
Super Mom…. more like having super powers!
That is what the word “WHATEVER!” is for! Right?!
Could be the reason why mothers make a good call center agent! the talent and ability for the job comes out naturally.
Mothers are not just home builders…. body builders too!
Of course! What are we called stay-at-home-mom for if we are not in the house?
No wonder it is the hardest, most underpaid job ever!
According to Morrie Schwatz “There is no experience like having children.There is no substitute for it, you can’t do it with a friend, you can’t do it with a lover. If you want the experience of having complete responsibility for another human being and to learn how to love and bond in the deepest way, then you should have children”
So to mothers like me out there, no words……..…….can express.
