Signs of Motherhood

My boys and I

  • A beautiful bouquet of weeds perches on your window sill.
  • Your service for sixteen contains seven plates and 11 bowls.
  • Someone asks your age, and your mind blanks. But you can recall to the minute when each child was born.
  • After sharing your drinking glass, it resembles a miniture aquarium.
  • Your dress sleeve doubles as a kleenex box.
  • Eating out is a hot dog roast.
  • You don’t want a dishwasher-you already have five!
  • Your dryer seems to be a Bermuda Triange for socks.
  • You risk waking your sleeping baby just to kiss her soft little cheek.
  • The display on your coffee table may include a dead mouse.
  • “Can a moth burb?” is the sort of mind-stumping question you face daily.
  • You know how to sanitize a pacifier with out turning on the faucet.
  • After washing the kitchen floor, you keep returning just to admire it.
  • Your diaper bag is your purse.
  • You love the smell of your baby’s neck.
  • Smudgy handprints on the window sill are a form of art for your guests to enjoy.
  • Being gone for a few hours makes you homesick.
  • There are never enough Band-aids in the cupboard.
  • Mooing like a cow facilitates the opening of little mouths at mealtime.
  • You wonder why it took so long to comb your hair when you were a teenager.
  • You’re the only overheated person when the family sits down to Sunday dinner.
  • After the children are sleeping, you return to their bedsides to kiss a soft cheek or stroke back some curls, and silently thank the Lord for making you the richest woman alive.
