“To the rest of the world, you may be just a mother, but to your children, you are their entire world.
You make chicken noodle soup and rub your children’s backs when they’re sick.
Like a nurse.
You let your children hop into bed with you when they have a nightmare and stand up to the monsters under their beds.
Like an activist.
You encourage your children to try again, help them with homework, and explain right from wrong.
Like a teacher.
After a hard day, you listen to your children and help them cool down.
Like a therapist.
You think of activities for your children, sing and dance with them, and play make-believe.
Like an entertainer.
You keep food on their table and know how to prepare meals just how your kids like them.
Like a chef.
You clean up toys, vacuum crumbs, make beds, do loads of laundry, wipe faces, and do dishes.
Like a cleaning service.
You have so many jobs, the list could go on and on.
And on top of that, you build a home filled with so much love.
So to the rest of the world,you may be just a mother, but to your children, you are their entire world.
And that’s the most important and hardest job there is.”
