    to normal after you've had a baby.... somebody

    doesn't know that once you're a mother, "normal" is


    Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by

    instinct .... somebody never took a three-year-old


    Somebody said being a mother is boring ....

    somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager

    with a driver's permit.

    Somebody said if you're a

    "good" mother, your child will "turn out

    good"....somebody thinks a child comes with

    directions and a guarantee.

    Somebody said "good" mothers never raise their

    voices .... somebody never came out the back door

    just in time to see her child hit a golf ball

    through the neighbor's kitchen window.

    Somebody said you don't need an education to be a

    mother.... somebody never helped a fourth grader

    with his math.

    is labor and delivery....somebody never watched her

    "baby"get on the bus for the first day of

    kindergarten .... or on a plane headed for military

    "boot camp."

    Somebody said a mother can do her job with her

    mother's heart strings.

    Somebody said a mother's job is done when her last

    child leaves home....somebody never had


    Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so

    you don't need to tell her.... somebody isn't a


    Pass this along to all the "mothers" in your life

    and to everyone who ever had a mother. This isn't
