Wordful Wednesday: Motherhood Edition


This picture is one I've shown before but it screams what motherhood is to me.

Nothing fancy. No dressy clothes, no make-up, no extra jewelry.
No big-time play dates or excursions (although those can be nice).
Nothing faked. Just me, with all my impatience and grumpiness (even
the kind that makes me yell at a 3-month-old sometimes or cry right along-side of my kids).
Nothing an "I'm sorry, please forgive me" (or "awwee") won't fix.
No expectations - except love, lots and lots of love.
No perfection. No Supermom. Just me and my kids (and Big A along for the ride).
(and some tv included...ok, maybe a lot)



please check out both Angie's Seven Clown Circus and Scary Mommy for more posts on Motherhood.
I won't lie, this post made me cry as I wrote it. And apparently you should go to Scary Mommy's to comment about my post if you want me to win the prize.
