You deserve a mojito for all the hard work you have done. I take that back, you deserve the world for all the hard work that you have done! I had NO idea how hard it is! How do you multi task a career, housework, kiddies, Dad and more? How do you keep the family together through hard times so effortless?
How did you make me breakfast, comb my hair, brush my teeth, dress Gary, drive us to school, pick us up mid day- when we were sick (on your lunch break), take our endless calls at your work, pick us up after school, drive us to soccer, track, swimming, dance, band, wrestling, make dinner, wash clothes, help us with homework and put us to bed all the time????? I' m exhausted thinking about it. How did you keep your cool when I: threw tantrums, threw my veggies, cried for no reason, talked back, lied, hung around the wrong crowd, failed a test, got sassy, knew it all, didn't listen, rolled my eyes, said bad words, slammed doors, came home way past curfew, yelled at you, and then cried some more?
Remember the day you helped me dress for prom, only to discover my tattoos?
I'm sorry for being a pain, now I'm getting a taste of my own medicine. I Love you Mom. Thank you!
