She called my name. I put down my book and looked up from the patio chair. “Hmmm?” I sounded.
“Mom, please help me,” she said and pointed to the swings.
I got up and walked toward her. “Will you please help me swing on all of them?” I didn’t understand and so she explained.
I frowned. “I don’t think it’s possible, honey.”
“Will you just try to help me? You’re the only mother I have,” she whined.
I bit back a laugh.
And then we did this together:
I pushed her awkwardly and she looked triumphant.
Later I showed her the picture as she snuggled up next to me in bed. “We did it!” I said and tickled her.
“Mommy? I love you.
But…” she paused.
“You’ve got to do something about your spikey legs.”
Ah, motherhood. Some days are smooth, others are, well, spikey.
But I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
In honor of Mother’s Day, I’m giving away 5 copies of my book, Don’t Make Me Come Up There!: Quiet Moments for Busy Moms!
