Real Mothers

I got this in an email, and I liked it so much, I decided it needed to be on my blog.

REAL MOTHERS
Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.
Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the
sandbox.
Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of shag
carpets.
Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.
Real Mothers sometimes ask "Why me?" and get their answer when a little
voice says, "Because I love you best."
Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or
years or grade...It is marked by the progression of Mama to Mom to
Mother...

Oh no! I just made quiche and posted about it a few days ago. *cry* I do have the excuse that daddy was watching the kids while I was slaving away in the kitchen though. :)

Do Bisquick quiches count against us? ;)

Love it, particularly that last one. We're still on Mama and I hope it stays that way for a LONG time!
