An Honest Explanation of the “10 Things Your Mom Never Told You”

  1. You made her cry… a lot. (Mostly because you went through a phase of drop kicking her in the stomach while jumping on the bed. And you had really bony elbows that always found their way to her chest)
  2. She wanted that last piece of pie. (Most likely so she could shove it in your dad’s face.)
  3. It hurt. (I wasn’t going to bring up my C-section, but since you asked…)
  4. She was always afraid. (Of sharks and that you’d grow up to be a jerk.)
  5. She knows she’s not perfect. (Unfortunately, you may not realize this until you’re an adult, and knee deep in your own circus. It will be at that point you realize none of us are.)
  6. She watched you as you slept. (Not in a creeper way. More in a how-can-someone-cause-so-much-havoc-yet-look-so-angelic way.)
  7. She carried you longer than nine months. (And she has the lower back problems to prove it.)
  8. It broke her heart each time you cried. (Unless it was associated with you doing something funny. She may have looked sad on the outside, but she was probably laughing on the inside.)
  9. She always put you first. (Mostly out of self/sanity preservation. And love, I guess.)
  10. She’d do it all over again. (Well, I guess this is true. You are pretty awesome.)

Motherhood is definitely not for the faint of heart; sacrifices are always made. Most of the time, if we can remember not to take ourselves seriously, this motherhood gig is pretty entertaining.
