Peach State says: What Makes A Mom!
Posted by justbetweencousins
New abilities grow,
Strength I never had.
All together will show,
Love through the good and bad.
Wreaking havoc and wrecking balls,
Discipline balanced in consistency.
Obnoxious and loud, the showing of claws,
Don’t make me call my flying monkeys!
Ears to hear each tiny sound,
Whispers filled with whining desires.
Laughter and tears are sure to abound,
There is nothing wrong with last years attire!
Eyes to see the signals they give,
Through the ups and downs and mistakes.
Teaching how to stand tall and live,
The rolling eyes when I hand them a rake!
I stand firm at the ready,
With my shield and my sword.
Till my load they help carry,
I’ll defend those I adore.
With a song in my heart,
Homemade cookies not flan,
These are a few marks,
Of What Makes A Mom!
Have a great day!
About justbetweencousinsWe are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
