The Marvels of Tina Fey and Happy Mother's Day!

5/06/2011

From "The Mother's Prayer For It's Daughter: (page 263):"
"And should she choose to be a Mother one day, be my eyes, Lord, That I may see her, lying on a blanket on the floor at 4:50 AM, all at once exhausted, bored, and in love with the little creature whose poop is leaking up its back. 'My mother did this for me once,' she will realize as she cleans feces off her baby's neck. 'My mother did this for me.' And the delayed gratitude will wash over her as it does each generation and she will make a Mental Note to call me. And she will forget. But I'll know, because I peeped it with Your God eyes. Amen."

I highly recommend Bossypants for anyone really, but as a mother this chapter in particular really hit home. Happy Mother's Day to my mom and to all of the wonderful, hard working mamas out there who endure hours of infant screaming, complaints about broccoli for dinner, protests about going to school and arguments over 10 pm curfews. Have a glass of wine for goodness sake...you all deserve it. Heck...have a bottle.


Other wonderful things around the web:
A beautiful bedroom...don't think Matt would go for all the purple...sigh.
Stunning wedding gowns...makes me want to try on dresses again (just not plan a wedding!)
Now this is a castle!
I still think turquoise is one of my favorite colors.
Something to keep in mind.


Have a wonderful weekend!
xoxo
