So what kind of Marriage and Family Therapist would I be if I didn’t dedicate a post to all of the wonderful moms out there this Mother’s Day. What don’t moms do? I mean really? They help with homework, chauffeur children around, kiss owies better, and thwart family disasters one sibling at a time.
When you look at all that moms do economically, they’re definitely underpaid. But they do it anyway in exchange for hugs, kisses, thank yous and the occasional fist full of yellow “flowers” that their children bring to them that they just pulled out of the lawn. Now, if that’s not altruistic I don’t know what is.
How Do Moms Do It?
One of the things that I don’t get is how moms are able to do so much. If anything gets lost, moms seem to know where to find it. Moms seem to be able to know exactly what is going on in everyone’s life even if they don’t tell them. They know their families’ schedule and are able to coordinate it all. And they do it all while cooking dinner and keeping the house clean along the way. Wow! Now that’s an impressive resume’.
Moms are superwomen! But unfortunately their efforts aren’t recognized enough. So for all you moms out there, I hope you know that your efforts are seen through every smile and laugh, every hug and kiss from your children. You are much of the reason they are who they are. If you’re a mom, take some time this week to appreciate yourself and let others appreciate you. You deserve it. If you’re not a mom take a moment to think about your own mother, spouses, children and take it to mean a little more to them this mothers day.
