Happy Mothers Day

I wanted to wish all of my friends Happy Mothers Day.
I found this and thought it was fitting. It reminds me that this too shall pass.

The Stages of Motherhood
4 years of Age- My Mommy can do anything.
8 Years of Age- My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot.
12 Years of Age- My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 Years of Age- Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.
16 Years of Age- Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned
18 Years of Age- That old woman? She's way out of date.
25 Years of Age- Well, she might know a little bit about it.
35 Years of Age- Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 Years of Age- Wonder what Mom would have thought about it.
65 Years of Age- Wish I could talk it over with Mom.
-Author Unknown
This reminds me that all of our daily struggles will pass. Eventually my son will remember I'm not stupid. Eventually, my little ones won't say "Mom, Mom" ALL day long. But then they will think I'm dumb and then eventually they will come back again.
Hope you all have a great day.
