A Gift to You - My Favorite Mother's Day Poems

You Know You're a Mom When...
author unknown

    1. You count the sprinkles on each kid's cupcake to make sure they're equal.

    2. You find yourself cutting your husbands' sandwiches into cute shapes.

    3. You can't bear to give away baby clothes - it's so final.

    4. You hear your mother's voice coming out of your mouth when you say, "NOT in your good clothes!"

    5. You stop criticizing the way your mother raised you.

    6. You hire a sitter because you have't been out with your husband in ages, then spend half the night checking on the kids.

    7. You say at least once a day, "I'm not cut out for this job", but you know you wouldn't trade it for anything
What is a Mother?
author unknown
A Mother has so many things to do,
From washing, ironing, cleaning to tying a shoe.

She scrubs, she mends, she cooks and sews,
She bathes the children and washes their clothes.

When they forget to wash their faces clean,
And their clothes are the muddiest you've ever seen,
Who repairs the clothes and scrubs them like new?
Of course, that is what a Mother will do.
    Who becomes the doctor or the nurse when they are ill,
    Applying a bandage or giving them a pill?
    Who becomes a teacher when a child has homework?
    She must never her duty shirk.

    Who becomes a detective to find a toy or a book?
    For missing things she must look and look?

    Who becomes a listener to every heartache,
    To every accompolishment that a child makes?

    Who scolds their children when they are naughty,
    Or remind them of God when they are to haughty?
    Who tends her family with love and patience, too?
    Of course that is what a Mother will do.
