Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there! It is definitely the toughest job out there! I am so blessed to have (in my opinion) the BEST mom on earth! I LOVE MY MOM!! I have no idea how she managed to have 13 kids without spending a few days in the mental hospital. She NEVER ceases to amaze me. She can work circles around people! She would give you the shirt off her back! I just don't know that I have ever met someone with more charity toward EVERYONE!! John has said a time or two that he thought he was marrying someone like my mom, but instead he married my dad. Let's just say....Dad and I have a little more fight in us! Ha ha!
Can I just say that I love being a mother! My kids are so great! Yes, they are not perfect, and there are days that I want to kick their ever-lovin-butts. But, I STILL LOVE THEM!!
Last year I gave my kids a quiz about mothers. I found another quiz about mothers and thought I would see what my kids had to say. I had to bite my cheek not to laugh during some of their answers.
