Today, I choose to celebrate myself.
I have been pushed to the very end of my mothering skills this year. I have hung onto my sanity by a thread, pushed there by parenting complicated kids in complicated times.
But I do not PUT UP with my kids. I love being their mother. I love the crazy, the complicated, the fun and and the awful.
This whole mothering thing is not easy. If you think it is, let us know when you have your first child.
And so today I will let (and in fact encourage) my kids to honor me. I deserve it. Right?
