Until I became a mother I never thought…

I’d care if a birthday party was cancelled

 

I’d obsess about bowel movements and gas

 

I’d remember to reapply sunscreen

 

I’d bake zucchini muffins and count them as a vegetable serving

 

I’d wipe someone else’s nose

 

I’d relearn my most dreaded school subject in order to help my child with homework

 

I’d feel compelled to ask if anyone needs to go to the bathroom before I go anywhere in a car

 

I’d go on nauseating upside-down amusement park rides because my kid needed to be accompanied by an adult

 

I’d spend my Friday night driving and picking up kids from parties and then spend my Saturday morning driving and picking up kids from the ice hockey rink starting at 5:00am.

 

I’d get to play Tooth Fairy

 

I’d (try to) answer questions such as “What does God look like?” and “Who was the mom of the first man?”

 

I’d willingly read the same book out loud night after night after night


And finally-

Until I became a mother I never thought… I’d wipe away tears when reading sappy Mother’s Day cards.

 

Happy Mother’s Day from your two Peds
