Somebody Said....

Somebody Said....

Somebody said a mother is an unskilled laborer...... somebody never gave a squirmy infant a bath.

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you've had a baby...... somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother "normal" is now history.

Somebody said a mother's job consists of wiping noses and changing diapers...... somebody doesn't know that a child is much more than the shell he lives in.

Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct...... somebody never took a three-year old shopping.

Somebody said being a mother is boring...... somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a driver's permit.

Somebody said teachers, psychologists and pediatricians know more about children than mothers...... somebody hasn't invested her heart in another human being.

Somebody said if you're a "good" mother, your child will "turn out"...... somebody thinks a child is like a bag of plaster that comes with directions, mold & a guarantee.

Somebody said being a mother is what you do in your spare time...... somebody doesn't know when you're a mother, you're a mother ALL the time.

Somebody said "good" mothers never raise their voices...... somebody never came out the back door just in time to see her child wind up and hit a golf ball through the neighbor's kitchen window.

Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother...... somebody never helped a fourth grader with his math

Somebody said you can't love the 3rd,4th, 5th, or more, child as much as you love the first...... somebody doesn't have three, four, five, or more children.

Somebody said a mother can find the answers to her child-rearing questions in the books...... somebody never had a child stuff beans up his nose.

Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and deliver...... somebody has never watched her "baby" get on a bus for the first day of kindergarten.

Somebody said a mother can do her job with her eyes closed and one hand tied behind her back......somebody never organized seven giggling Brownies to sell cookies.

Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married......

somebody doesn't know that marriage adds a new son-in-law or daughter-in-law to a mother's heartstrings.

Somebody say a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home......somebody never had grandchildren.

Somebody said being a mother is a side dish on the plate of life...... somebody doesn't know what fills you up.

Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell her...... somebody isn't a mother.

Remember to call your mother and wish her a

Hope your Mother's Day is great!
Pray for my stepmom, Margie. She lost her oldest son in a car accident 5 years ago--- on Mother's Day! Her youngest son died in his sleep, unexpectedly, last September. Both were 41 and they were her only children. Both left two daughters behind.
Someone said there's a name for children who lose their parents, but not for parents who lose their children. How true and how sad.
