Keepin’ It Real for Mother’s Day

As we all know, kids are a little nutty and being a parent is crazy hard. When Mother’s Day rolls around, we thank our mothers for being kind, or for “raising us right” (whatever that means), or for always being there.

The truth is, though, the thing you should be most thankful for is that your mother never threw you in a river, gave you to the mafia, or sent you packing on a hot air balloon never to return. Basically, if you survived your childhood at the hands of an exhausted, tried, worn out mother—she wins. She wins a million points forever.

So, I made a card for all you kids to send out if you wanna keep it real this Mother’s Day.

Wishing all you mothers a happy, insanity-free day.

    I thank my God for my mother, because at 21 years old she had 3 babies and no one to help her, she was the securest and most stable person in my life and that continued until I met Mark. Get to know your Grandmother….. you will be surprised!!

    • The fact that she made it through all seven (7!!) of you with her mental acuity intact makes her a super legit parent. I’m just barely hangin’ on with my one. Whewf!
