I'll be the billionth one to say it...
Being a mom is hard.
The hardest thing I have ever done. Last year, I would have read that and thought, "Sure, I know being a mom is 'hard' and moms definitely deserve to be thanked." But did I really know anything? No. Not a clue. I had to become a mom myself to get it. Without a doubt, I knew I was in for a life change and a ton of hard work when I wrote this post, but I had no idea. NO IDEA. You can't know until you're in it. Well this year I'm in it, and on Mother's Day I can wholeheartedly say:
THANK YOU, MOMS! you are amazing! Each and every one of you! Way to go on another year of sweet and selfless hard work. You are esteemed and adored by me.
Especially you, Mom. My incredible mom, who needs a colossal thank you from me. Mom, I get it now! I know the work you put in and what kinds of sacrifices you made. Thank you, for making my needs your top priority. Thanks you for nursing twins!! (How did you do this?! You are Wonder Woman!) Thanks for every moment you gave to me that you could've spent on yourself. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love you!! Happy Mother's Day! (and Happy Birthday, too!)
