I wanted to do a pre-mother's day post with things people love about their mom or what they love about being a mom... well I only got one reply to that From The Peachy One! If you haven't checked out her blog... please do. She is an amazing woman. And I feel privileged to have "met" her thru blogging and twitter and all that social media crap. This is one time when every one in my life thinks I am crazy for blogging and tweeting and what not...I can say "See!!! This is why I do it!!"
This was the email she sent to me after I asked her if she minded if I posted about the blog link she sent me:
if you want, I am not a typical mom, to the world they see my daughter with 3 degrees by 22, my phsycics science fair, mr good citizenship award winning honor roll baseball playing sweet heart, my ninja tech loving husband, and my humor, our house our dogs and go wow, they are so "perfect" so "normal".
then out there, is him, my son, the one I couldn't fix, the one that is just as much mine as the others, from me, of me, mine, the one who tried to kill me more than once, the one who I would lay my life down to save, but I can not because I have another younger one to raise.
so behind every J crew perfect lawn, when a mother crumbles feeling so guilty for yelling or losing her cool, and see's her perfect neighbors at the soccer game, remember, there's a hole in their wall, even if they had it fixed. I just own mine.
Please also check out these other posts she wrote from last year... I read these and I cryed. My heart broke... for her. for her family. and for all the other families that have had to and are still going thru similar situations...
