How I Became My Mother

By
Home Stager with Healthyhappyimpactful.com

The other day, my 10 year old son got in trouble - so I told him "no friends today."

Two hours later, he runs upstairs (while I'm in the middle of something) and tells me that the neighbor kid came inside.

He's waiting for my "no, we already talked about this. You're in trouble."

Except it doesn't come.

He stands there for forever. Instead, I look at him and say "why are you telling me this? He comes in all the time. It's fine. And I'm trying to finish this."

So, my son shrugs his shoulders and speed walks away.

That night, in the middle of dinner, it hits me - I completely FORGOT what I told my kid. Like, within hours.

And there it was - I turned into my mother.

My mother who also had three kids and would often tell us something only to forget later. (Because, I realize now, her mind was overwhelmed with the logistics of multiple kids.)

Have you ever had these moments? Where you stop and think. "Yep. And now I'm mom." (Or dad!)

Reply back and let me know about them. Tell me I'm not the only one. šŸ¤£

Happy Mother's Day Friends!

What will you be doing for this day devoted to moms? Will you be enjoying quiet time or working on your favorite hobby? Playing with the grandkids or pampering a mom you know?

I hope your kids and grandkids spoil you,

Jenn

Jennifer- while I don't have any children of my own, trust me...there are times when I open my mouth and am frightened to hear my mother.Ā

Well my mom is the best forgiver that I ever met. Maybe your mom taught you that as well. LOL

I don't have any stories that pop into my head but I'm sure I've been mom from time to time! I'd have to say I've probably sounded more like my dad ("What, do you think money grows on trees?") haha.
