My three kids, however, are typical little humans thinking that their mother will always be around, and that mothers were invented to keep shoving food their way, keeping their laundry reasonably clean, and dispensing bandaids when needed. They have absolutely no idea what the job title "Mother" entails.
I won't even mention pushing a baby out of the birth canal, since this act should earn us a gold medal, but I mean the day-to-day things: staying up all night cleaning up vomit and soothing feverish foreheads, reading "The Berenstein's" book for the thousandth time while fighting the urge to either nod off or rip the damn book to pieces, driving the kids to and fro for miles and miles and hours and hours... The list goes on and on.
Mother's Day, though (with my husband coaching them, I'm sure), my three lovely children bring me handmade cards, flowers, kisses, and proclamations of yours truly "being the best mama foreversakes".
Yeah. It's all worth it after all.
Now comes the fun part for you: I have kept a little online Etsy shop for years and completely neglected it. A few weeks ago I decided that I want to close up this shop, since I can't give it the energy it deserves, and since Mother's Day is close, I thought I would offer you a very, very generous sale.
