So! Did you know that I am a mother? Yep! My son will be 21 years old this August, SHAT! (yes that also means that I am 39 and maybe unicorns have blessed my skin care regimen #MelaninRocks).
Point is, I’ve done this. This meaning motherhood. I’ve got lots of stories. From funny, to sad to “OMG he did what?” and yet I am still learning. There was this time that I left my son in his crib for 15 minutes and when I returned there was doo doo all over my walls resembling Picasso’s first paintings. Lessons learned. But I also learned that I didn’t really have to “whip my son’s ass” (except that time I knocked the wind out of him with my little ole fist) because he was more hurt by the fact that he has disappointed me and his grandma. Lessons learned.
That’s the thing about motherhood. It’s just one long ass repeated lessons learned moment. Which is just one of the reasons you should appreciate mothers. We are innovators. We are chefs. We are doctors. And therapists. We are “any and everything” you need us to be at any moment you ask us to be said “whatever you need us to be”!
In honor of Mother’s Day, I sat down with Elite Daily for a little comic relief and shared a few nuances no mother likes to admit. Check it out. You’re welcome for your daily laugh today!
