My Mum is the best.
She had 4 kids in her early 20’s – something most young people these days wouldn’t dare attempt.
I asked my Mum how she handled it all back then… I mean, some of my friends today complain about having 2 kids.. How did she manage 4 x little terrors running around!?
Mum told me her secret:
“Whenever I got overwhelmed, I just closed my eyes and imagined I had 10 kids. I imagined the 6 oldest ones were off at boarding school, so I only had to deal with the 4 little ones that day. Easy!”
Love her perspective and attitude in life. My siblings and I are lucky.
Thanks, Mum. For everything.
I love you.
Happy Mothers Day!
