While we as mothers all share similar stories and experiences, motherhood is truly something different for everyone.
Today, no matter what motherhood means to you, I’m wishing you a restful, love-filled day surrounded by the people who made you a mother.

“like a movie, there’s comedy, drama, romance, train wrecks, accidents, you do your own stunts like changing diapers that should require a HAZMAT team. You fall in love with them the second you know you’re pregnant, again when they’re born, you have moments of doubt and times of celebration. You wish you could pause it, and then you wish you could fast forward and at the very end when they finally move out, you want to watch the movie again.” –Kristin, Mom of 2, In Deep H2O
