Real Moms Meme

Kat tagged me for this, and I've been thinking about it all day. I simply cannot come up with anything witty, funny or profound, so I guess I'll just write from the heart.

Real Moms...
  • cry. We cry when our children fail and we cry when they succeed. We cry when they are funny, and also when they are not. Sometimes we cry for no reason other than the fact that we are real moms.

  • dance. We dance to popular songs, silly songs and made up songs. We do pee-pee and poo-poo dances. We dance at weddings and birthday parties. And sometimes we dance when no one is looking.

  • run. We run after stray children and stray toys. We run after other's children and feel just as afraid as if they were our own. We run to our own mothers and friends for comfort and support and advice.

  • drive. We drive to and from soccer games and dance classes, school and work. We drive our children to be all that we are and all that we weren't. We drive ourselves nuts.

  • laugh. We laugh every day. We laugh at funny things and nonsense things. We laugh at baby talk and childish moves and grown up reactions. We laugh because sometimes that's all we can do. Sometimes we laugh so much we cry.

  • love. We love unconditionally and uncontrollably. We love so much it hurts. We never stop loving and our love knows no limit.

...and Real Moms also drink coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.

I tag the following, Carrie, Julia and Mollie. The rules - finish the statement "Real moms__" and add a picture (or two or three or five!).
D :)

Thanks! and it's a beautiful post. I hoped you would include lots of pictures!

Oh, The Joys said...

Ha! All true - the coffee part especially!

I like your statements about "real moms." I've made note of your tag, and when I get a moment from unpacking and sorting through my hundreds of Taiwan pics, I'll post my thoughts on that as well.
