I know, I'm crabby. I am down to 10 business days left until I'm done with work and despite it being so.close., I am very impatient.
But that's no excuse.I need to be a better Mom. A more patient Mom. A happier Mom.
Shifting to Mothers Day humor...
One of my favorite shows is Home Improvement. The show began when I was in high school and ended just before I became a mother for the first time.
I'll never forget the Mother Poem from one of the Construction guys on Tool Time:
Who etched this tattoo in her big purple muu muu?
Who posted my bail - every time without fail?
And who rushed to the car - with my severed thumb in a jar?
And who sewed it back on - when the doctor was gone?
Happy Mothers Day, Mom!
And then there's this T-shirt:
Okay, okay, that's a little harsh. But can I wear it when teaching? lol Okay, okay....
And is it horrible that I can totally relate with this exchange?
I feel like even though it's Mothers Day, I don't deserve it. I need to be nicer. I need to be more patient. I know I said that already, but it's still true.
Of course I could go all day with these. Despite my challenges with patience and perfectionism, I love my goofballs and wouldn't trade them for anything.
