This year, instead of waiting for my kids to wish me a Happy Mother’s Day, I’m going to wish THEM a Happy Mother’s Day. After all, they’re the ones who taught me how to be their mother.
Parenting is a long game. A really, really, long game. I wasn’t prepared for it. I’m not the mother I thought I would be before I had kids, thanks to my son and daughter who aren’t the kids I expected to have before I had them.
