This Is Why I Love Motherhood by Little White Whale
For me, motherhood is a many splendored thing.
It’s keeping my fingers crossed no one breaks anything…else.
I remind myself to check the littlest one’s grip for permanent markers. Because this Oscar child of mine always seems to find my hidden stash and then it’s nothing but hieroglyphs for days down the hallway and on the leather couch and the back of the dining room chairs. And. Really. Wherever his fancy strikes. Toddler art is sweet, but it’s added to one of the premature wrinkles on my forehead. For sure.
And without a doubt, without any hesitation, it is safe to say that 99.999% of all of motherhood is about putting stuff back together. It’s about fixing things that you never thought you’d have to fix. Because those things were minding their own business and FINE just a moment ago.
Also, hey where are my keys? And who took my phone? Seriously guys, where are my keys?
