I customized this for my special needs mommy friends. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Happy Mother's Day!<br><br><br>
Being a Mother<br><br>
Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you've had a baby.<br>
That somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother "normal" is a matter of perspective.<br><br><br>
Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct.<br>
That somebody never learned how to program a feeding pump.<br><br><br>
Somebody said being a mother is boring. . .<br>
That somebody never stood over their child and prayed they would make it through the night.<br><br><br>
Somebody said if you're a good mother your children will turn out good.<br>
That somebody thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee.<br><br><br>
Somebody said good mothers never raise their voices.<br>
That somebody never yelled for their partner to quick run and get something to catch vomit in.<br><br><br>
Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother.<br>
That somebody never spent endless hours on the internet researching their child's condition.<br><br><br>
Somebody said you can't love an unborn baby as much as you love one that you hold in your arms.<br>
That somebody never lost a baby.<br><br><br>
Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing questions in the books.<br>
That somebody never been handed a diagnosis for which no books have ever been written.<br><br><br>
Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery.<br>
That somebody never watched her baby get wheeled into the O.R.<br><br><br>
Somebody said a mother can do her job with her eyes closed and one hand tied behind her back.<br>
That somebody never managed a med schedule, feeding schedule, nebulizer schedule, therapy and doctor schedule.<br><br><br>
Somebody said a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home.<br>
That somebody never had children who may never leave home. And if they do leave home, be it a home on earth or a home in heaven, that child will never stop being a part of a mother's very being.<br><br><br>
Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell her.<br>
That somebody isn't a mother. And that person doesn't know that a child can say volumes with their eyes or body language.
