Happy Mother's Day

To all the moms out there, Happy Mother's Day!
It's the hardest job in the world.
It gets the least acknowledgment.
and rarely does anyone say thank you.

It's also the greatest job
the most rewarding
and absolutely the best experience out there!

Being a mother is the best and worst of everything all at once.
You get the hugs, the cuddles and the smiles, but you also have to watch your little ones navigate the scary outside world.
It's the toughest thing in the universe, and each mother who has caught puke, patched up cuts, and answered where babies came from at seven a.m. over Fruit Loops, deserves a medal.

Today's all about Mom.
Love her.
Appreciate her.
don't always agree or get her, but know that when it comes down to it, having a good mom means
you have one bad ass person in your corner that will drop kick anyone that tries to hurt her babies.

I hope you're all sitting up, feet up, coffee in hand opening your cards and presents your husbands forgot to get until the last minute. (story of my life)
Today is all about us.
However many years ago it was that you brought life screaming into the world,
spent years trying not to strangle your teenager,
or picked gum from under things that were once treasured 'antiques'.
No murder from me today, only happiness that I get to be celebrated for my most important works of art.

They aren't Ethan, Elizabeth or Callen.
Or Greyson and Emma,
but Isabella Ali and Alexzander Ares,

Happy Mother's Day all,
and if your husbands forgot, didn't get you flowers or something
big, fat and sparkly, give me their name.
I'll send out Elizabeth to ass kick them into next month.

Much Love, Mayhem and Mommy-hood,
