Somebody Said



Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you bring home a baby ..
somebody doesn't know that
once you're a mother, "Normal" is history.

Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct...
somebody never took a young child shopping

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 her school project.

Somebody said you can't love the fifth child as much as you love the first...
somebody doesn't have five children

Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her
child-rearing questions in a baby book ...
somebody never had a child stuff beans up her nose or in her ears.

Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery or waiting to sign an adoption paper...somebody never watched her "baby " have cancer .. or fly away on a plane headed for war

Somebody said a good mother can do her job with her eyes closed and one
hand tied behind her back .. somebody never organized seven giggling
Girl Scouts to sell cookies

Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets
married...somebody doesn't know that marriage adds a new son or
daughter-in-law to a mother's heartstrings.

Somebody said your mother knows you love her,
so you don't need to tell her....
somebody isn't a mother.
