Let’s face it. Motherhood is tough, but being a mother makes us tougher. Even if a child came with a manual, there are numerous curve balls that it would have failed to mention. After the first few times, a seasoned mother will be able to change a loaded diaper without gagging. She can put on a smile even after having had projectile vomiting on freshly laundered sheets or shirt. More importantly, we learn to function on just a few hours of sleep each night.
Motherhood also makes us more fashionable. White shirts get the most spit up or food stains onto them, so when shopping for new clothes, try orange or red. Another trend I’ve noticed on many moms is the holey knee, usually on one side. It’s from getting down on that knee to wipe a drippy nose or to give a hug goodbye. I’ve noticed it on my corduroys, too. It’s to be expected.
Motherhood definitely helps with our sense of humor. Moms learn to suppress laughter even during a temper tantrum; you just laugh about it later with a fellow mom or your spouse. And what about those darn things that they say in private and in public?
