Okay guys, this is Madison, Emily’s favorite oldest daughter. My mom is busy putting the babies to bed and so I only have a limited amount of time to post this.
So, you all know that today is Mother’s Day, right? Well, if you didn’t, now you do so I suggest you call your mom and tell her how much you love and appreciate her. My mom knows how much I love her (at least I hope she does…) and so this post shouldn’t be very long, but I thought you should all know what she really does and goes through throughout the day.
1. This starts at an early 4-6:00 AM when the babies wake her up. They wake her up EVERY SINGLE MORNING no matter what! They’re like the mailman! They come no matter what the weather is like; either rain or snow or sleet or hail. And you can tell it wears her out. Especially when she goes to bed at 2:00 in the morning and has to get up early to go to the gym. I don’t know why or how she does it, but my guess is that it has something to do with the gallons of Coke she drinks throughout the day.
2. Next is rushing people places. This happens all day, everyday, 24/7. Whether it’s school, t-ball, dance, or cello and viola lessons, my mom practically lives in the car. I think she might be okay with this if the car was a luxurious limo; but that’s never going to happen.
3. Her writing. Not writing books, but blogging and other things. She pins on Pinterest, works on her website for you lovely folk, and edits papers for my dad. And believe me, she edits A TON of papers for him. You’d think that since they’re in college or MBA school or whatever the crap he’s doing, they’d actually be able to punctuate and spell! But no. Looks like women are the superior sex, huh guys?
4. She picks up. She’s like Linda, our cleaning lady. She picks up and picks up and picks up and picks up. She hates it, I know. Trust me, I know. Usually I’m pretty good at picking up after myself, but the rest of the family… She says, and I quote, “sometimes it’s like I have five kids!”
Even though that was just a few of the things she does, they are the things she does the most. I love her very much and hope that she doesn’t get mad at me for my grammatically incorrect and hacking her website thingamajig. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
