How To Be An Overprotective Mother

For all you mothers out there – the following passage explains (with slight exaggeration) how I managed to make it through those early years of motherhood.

“They always make it a point to tell you in those stories what the mother was doing wrong – she just ran to the store for a pack of cigarettes – she just dozed off for a minute – she was talking on the phone when the kid, who was jumping on the bed, flew out of the tenth-story window. So I simply keep the kids with me all the time.”

Cleaning House – Nancy Hayfield

I swear, some days it felt like that. Being responsible for the lives of your children is a daunting task.

Happy Mother’s Day.

And may your little darlings reward you (today and always) for your love, devotion, 6th sense and for growing those eyes in the back of your head.

Happy Mother's Day Beth!

I don't think I'll be able to sleep when I have kids - I'll be too worried about them and will constantly want to check to make sure they're breathing and not getting hurt.
