Linking up with Kate Motaung’s Five Minute Friday.
This week’s prompt is “mom”.
On the eve of Mother’s Day, I struggle to think of something that hasn’t already been said repeatedly.
I wonder sometimes if motherhood has been over idealized somewhat. Most of the work of mothering is routine, daily, unglamorous.
A lot of it is just work.
It’s a long term investment, because your two year old doesn’t thank you. Your teenager doesn’t see the angst beneath the surface.
So, you have to be in it for the long haul, not the short term.
